Slow Cooker Pork Tacos

1. Rinse and dry the pork shoulder; place in a slow cooker with the fat facing up. Rub in salt, pepper, dried oregano, ground cumin and olive oil.

2. Top with onion, jalapeño, minced garlic and Florida Orange Juice.

3. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours, or on high for 6 hours.

4. Remove pork from slow cooker when it is tender and falling off the bone; place on serving platter.

5. Shred pork using two forks.

6. Set out with your family’s favorite taco toppings and they can make their own DIY tacos.

Helpful Tips:

  • If you plan to re-heat and serve the pork for multiple meals, skim the fat off the top of the remaining liquid in the slow cooker and save. Pour the liquid onto leftover pork prior to re-heating.
  • For a lighter option, switch out flour or corn tortillas for lettuce wraps.
  • You can also make this in a multi-cooker using the “Slow Cook” setting and following the same instructions.
