Pulled Pork Tacos

A couple months ago I tried out a new pulled pork recipe and ended up finding my go-to pulled pork recipe in this Slow Cooker Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork.

After making a dozen or so taco recipes with it, I came across a taco that I think is worth sharing.

These tacos may be a bit more intensive than your average taco. The pork takes 8 hours to simmer away, the pickled red onions also take at least an hour to chill in your fridge, and there’s a homemade crema you whip up. Regardless, they’re worth making when you can find the time, especially since most of the prep is inactive prep thanks to the work the slow cooker does for you.

While I’m not a huge mayo person (there are tastier condiments, in my opinion), I’m really enjoying the mayo crema I made for these. I’m not sure if it’s actually considered a crema if you make it without sour cream or another type of cream, but oh well. All we had was mayo when I first made this recipe and it worked! The crema is tasty and worth trying on your taco-ing ventures.
