Wild Pork Tacos
 
1 Attachment(s)
One of my favorite ways to use pork shoulder/butt is to cook it in a pressure cooker and shred it for tacos. After shredding the meat i will take it and season it again with a little bit of cumin, chili powder, galic powder and salt. I put a little bit of oil in a cast iron pan and put the seasoned shredded meat in the pan. I cook it until it crisps up just a bit. This gives the shredded meat even more flavor and better texture IMO. I made a few homemade corn tortillas and topped the tacos with pickled red onion, cilantro, cheese, sour cream and garnished with a wedge of lime.

That looks like something I'd like to try. I find myself getting street type tacos even at restaurants.

I just followed the recipe on the bag of corn flour from the store. Forming them and rolling them out was not the easiest thing to do. I give credit to those hispanic ladies who do it by hand.

Hey Jason, what do you season with in the pressure cooker and how long do you cook it for? Looks good man.

For a 5lbs shoulder/butt i used

-2tbls of salt
-1tbls of fresh cracked black pepper
-2tbls of cumin
-2tbls of chili powder ( i used both ancho and light chili powder, 1 tbls of each)
-2tbls of garlic powder
-1/2tsp of cinnamon

Im using a 22quart presto pressure cooker so it's kinda big which mean i have put enough cooking liquid in it to last entire time it cooks. In the pressure cooker i put:

-6cups of chicken stock
-10 cloves of garlic
-1 onion chopped
-spoon full of black pepper corns
-2 bay leaves

Cook at high pressure for an 1hr 40min. The rule of thumb for thick cuts of meat or roast seems to be 20min/lb.

Alot of the things you put in the pressure cooker is for aromatics and some flavor but i feel like it loses some flavor because of the cooking process. Thats why i shred the meat, season it again and then put in a hot pan with 2-3tbls of oil to crisp it up. (On the 2nd round of season i didn't put the cinnamon on it.)

This is a game changer for any meat from a pressure cooker or crockpot! I like to use a little lard instead of oil.

Hand-made tortillas. Wow! That's labor intensive but I'm sure it's well worth the effort.

Bryan2014 04-11-2018 04:49 PM

that looks fantastic

Definitely a game changer! And the lard would be better for adding more flavor. Yea the handmade corn tortillas were tough to make. I had to use saran wrap and a rolling pen to get a round tortilla. But they were GOOD!

Looks amazing.

looks amazing!!

Looks great! I do something similar in a crockpot. Reminds me that I have one hind quarter left in the freezer and now I know what I’m going to do with it,

I smoked wild pork this weekend. After smoking I Cut it into manageable pieces and put in the instapot for 45 mins on high with some barbeque sauce. I don't put much sauce in which is good because we are making enchiladas tonight with it.

I will be trying the skillet and oil on my next one! Yours looks great!
