SL Slow Cooked Orange Pork Roast Tacos

This sounded like a great way to make something besides the usual tacos with ground beef. I also never buy this cut of meat. It was good! I don't know that it was worth the price of buying orange marmalade but I would definitely cook another pork shoulder in the crockpot! Day two I shredded it and we had bbq sandwiches for lunch that were really good. To make this again I would start it the night before because at 8 hours it was nowhere near done. I removed the fat, turned it over and continued cooking it to get it done.
Also I used flour tortillas because we don't like corn.

SL Slow Cooked Orange Pork Roast Tacos

Recipe courtesy Sandra Lee


* 1 medium onion, chopped * 1 (10-pound) bone-in pork shoulder, picnic cut * 2 tablespoons soy sauce * 1 tablespoon chopped garlic * 2 teaspoons salt * 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper * 1 cup orange marmalade * 20 corn tortillas

Also buy:



Place the onions in the bottom of a 5-quart slow cooker. Place the pork shoulder, fat and skin side up. in the slow cooker. In a medium bowl stir together soy sauce, garlic, salt pepper and orange marmalade. Pour mixture over the pork. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

Remove shoulder to a serving platter and let rest for 5 minutes. Break up some of the meat with a fork and arrange on platter. Leave the rest of the meat on the bone to keep it warm and moist and let your guest pull it off the as they need it.

Wrap the tortillas in damp towels, 10 to a towel and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Set out pork and tortillas with Cabbage Slaw and have guests assemble their own tacos.
