Over the weekend I looked in my freezer and realized I had a ton of frozen stuff and needed to use it. (or lose it)
Pork Loin...hmmmm what to do?
Pull out the slow cooker and cook that bad boy....(I ♥ my crock) and make....
Shredded Pork Tacos (inspiration came from my love of Tin Star's pork tacos)
I had about a 3.5 lb pork loin here's what I did to her....
Take a 28oz (or bigger???) can of tomato sauce and stir in: 2 tbs of chili powder, 2 tbs cumin, 2 tbs brown sugar, 1 tsp salt, handful of shakes of cayenne pepper, 3 tsp minced garlic. Blend well.
Dump this over your pork and either cook on low all day (of if you are like me and you forget cook on high for 5 hrs or until shreddable...yes, that's a word)
Grab your flour tortillas and add your shredded pork...a little of the incredible sauce..some cilantro sprigs (Hi LeAnna) and some radishes. (Thank You Tin Star for this addition)
I scoured the net for a good mexican rice (I had yet to find one I ♥) and got a collection...hit my FB friends up for one too and they seemed to concur with the ones I found)
Onion, rice, chicken broth, rotel, and some seasonings.
Saute your onion and rice for a few mins....then add ur broth and rotel to boil. Reduce heat to simmer for about 20 mins. Top with cheese.
It was fair. Still not exactly what I'm looking for.....
If you have a Mexican Rice recipe different from the one above...please send my way.
I wish I had taken pictures of the tacos. (we were hungry) But take my word....they were outstanding. Even Mini Me said "Hey Mom, how come we haven't had this more often?"
She will be getting her wish. I have another 3.5 lb pork loin in the freezer and I'm thinking Pulled Pork Sandwiches next week. (one meal down next week six more to go)
