Cumin Spiced Pork Tacos Recipe
Author: 
Recipe type: Main Dish- Pork
 
Ingredients
  • 4-5 lb pork roast (loin, should, etc. I used a shoulder roast)
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 12 oz. beer of choice (or broth if you don't like to cook with beer)
  • Corn Tortillas
  • Cabbage slaw (I use a simple recipe like this one)
  • Crumbled cheese, salsa, avocados, sour cream, or other toppings of choice
Instructions
  1. Place the pork roast in a large roasting pan, and sprinkle the minced garlic over the top.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the sea salt, cumin, chili powder, black pepper, oregano, cayenne pepper, and cocoa powder.
  3. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the roast and use your fingers to rub it into the meat. Pour the orange juice and beer into roasting pan.
  4. Cover and bake in a 275 degree oven for 6-7 hours, or until it shreds apart easily with a fork.
  5. Remove from the oven, let cool slightly, and shred up the meat - removing any gristle or bone.
  6. Pour the liquid from the pan back over the shredded meat.
  7. Serve a heaping scoop of the shredded pork atop a warm corn tortilla, topping it with cabbage slaw, crumbled cheese, and salsa
