Recipe Details

Pulled Pork Soft Tacos

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 6

FOR ROASTS, CHOPS and TENDERLOINS

Cook to 145 F with 3 minute rest

Ingredients

1 1/4 pounds cooked pulled pork, warmed
12 5- or 6-inch corn tortillas, OR flour tortillas
3 cups iceberg lettuce, OR romaine lettuce, shredded (about 1/4 head of iceberg or 1/2 small head of romaine)
1 cup salsa, purchased or homemade, or more to taste

Cooking Directions

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place two tortillas in the skillet and cook until warm and softened, about 30 seconds per side. Fill the tortillas with about 1 1/2 ounces of the pork, 1/4 cup of the lettuce, and 4 teaspoons of the salsa.

Repeat with the remaining tortillas and serve.

* If you prefer to heat all of the tortillas at once, microwave them on high until warm and softened, 1 to 2 minutes.

Makes 6 servings

Serving Suggestions

Instead of assembling the tacos yourself, you can arrange the pork, lettuce, salsa, and warm tortillas on a platter and let guests make their own. If you like, add cheese, guacamole, sliced avocado, or sour cream — or serve lime or radish wedges on the side. You can also replace the lettuce with finely shredded cabbage.

About the Cut: Shoulder

Pork shoulder is the top portion of the front leg of the hog. The terminology for pork shoulder can vary widely depending on the region. However, the lower ‘arm’ portion of the shoulder is most commonly called the arm picnic. The upper part of the shoulder, often called the Boston blade roast (also known as Boston- style butt), comes from the area near the loin and contains the shoulder blade bone.

Tips and Tricks

Buying, Handling & Storage Tips

It is safe to cook frozen or partially-frozen pork in the oven, on the stove or grill without defrosting it first; the cooking time may be about 50% longer. Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness. It is best if frozen pork roasts are cooked at an oven temperature of 325 degrees F. Do not cook frozen pork in a slow cooker.

Butcher's Tips

To ensure doneness, check with a meat thermometer. A thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the cut should produce a temperature of 160°F for medium doneness
