How to make it

  • Place the pork roast in crock pot or other slow cooker and pour in the beer, then pour hot sauce and spices over the roast evenly. I don't brown the roast first, just put it in there. I do about 1 hour or so on high to get the crock pot hot, and then turn the slow cooker on low and continue for about 7-8 hours, until tender and falling apart. I then turn it off and let it cool down if serving later, and put in fridge. If you work like I do, you can get it started before bed time, then wake up and turn it off in the morning and store in fridge until that evening for dinner.
  • Next step, when ready to serve, I get a cast iron skillet - use whatever skillet you have - and get it hot with no oil or anything in it. Shred the pork and then place portions in the pan, searing it and then pour off any grease. This gets it cooked further to your liking and gets it the right texture for making the tacos, draining the liquid.
  • To start taco assembly, I get another skillet hot, but little to no oil, and toast the tortillas on each side slightly to warm them up. Using the oven works too. I dont heat them enough to make them set up , turn brown, or harden at all, but enough to get them warm and bring out the flavor, do this just before filling with ingredients. With corn tortillas, this also makes them somewhat easier to work with and absorbent, so what would ordinarily be messy to eat, is easier to manage without spilling.
  • I use enough pork in each one to make a line down the center that is about 1-1.5 times the width of my thumb.
  • My favorite is a corn tortilla, with the pork, avocado, cilantro, jalapeno, chopped red onion and sour cream with green salsa. The slaw is good too.

    I hadn't either and it was perfect. I think you can even omit the garlic and its still perfect.
