This is one of my favorite recipes, and it comes to you courtesy of my sister-in-law!  It was a cold, Halloween night, and she served a group of us these simple pork tacos on corn tortilla shells while we sat on the front porch handing out candy to the local neighborhood kids.  I fell in love!

This dish is great if you want something easy and quick to prepare that still packs a punch of flavor and spice.  Whether you are cooking for 2 or 10, or want to cook extra to have leftovers for another day, this basic main course dish is very versatile and easy to adjust to accommodate your taste buds.

Customize your meal by pairing this main dish with any taco sides or “stuffings” of your choice (my husband and I always have pico de gallo, avocado, beans and cheese – LOTS OF CHEESE – at the ready!).  You can also adjust the spice level to your liking by adjusting the amount of sriracha and brown sugar added to the pot (note, the heat and spice will cook into the pork, leaving the final dish less “severe” than the poignant smell of the original mix).

Instructions
  1. Combine the sage, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl and mix well. Rub seasoning mix over the pork roast evenly.
  2. Combine the brown sugar, sriracha and apple cider vinegar in a medium bowl and mix well.
  3. Place the pork in a slow cooker and pour the sriracha mixture over the pork, covering all sides of the roast. Add the water along the edges of the pot and cook on low for 8-10 hours (or high for 4-6 hours).
  4. About 1-2 hours before the pork is done cooking, carefully separate the pork meat and mix well with the remaining juices in the slow cooker. Replace the lid and cook for the remaining time.
  5. Once the pork is done cooking, heat the flour or corn tortillas according to package instructions and enjoy with your favorite taco sides and stuffings!
