I have a confession…
While I oh-so love me some pork… especially pulled pork, I have not really been a fan of shredded pork in tacos/burritos… that is until now.
When I found this recipe in Gooseberry Patch’s new Simple Shortcut Recipes (Psst… my giveaway of this great new book is ending soon, have ya entered?) I was curious about the flavors, excited about the four ingredients and enticed by the slow cooker.
So I lined my crockpot and put in 2 lbs of a pork loin.
Note: The recipe says to dice the loin, but I knew that it would shred right up after 8 hours, so I just threw it in… all for saving time
I added 3 (15 oz) cans of chili beans
And 1 jar of picante sauce… that’s it!
Put a lid on it and cook on low for 8 hours.
Take two forks and shred the meat. Stir into sauce.
Serve up as burritos or as tacos with your favorite toppings OR…
Fix it up in a bowl as a fantastic hearty pork chili… (or add some canned diced tomatoes to dilute it a bit).
Either way, the flavor is amazing! We ate them as tacos and as chili.
This will be a staple in the future and an easy freezer meal!
