Default Wild Pork Tacos

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.

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.

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 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!
