Directions

  1. Cut the pork roast into thirds, and place in a pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 1 hour, or until pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Drain, cool, and shred.
  2. Place the shredded pork in a bowl, and season with garlic salt, salt, and pepper. Mix in the Cheddar cheese and onion.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place equal amounts of the pork mixture in the center of each corn tortilla, and fold in half to form tacos. One or two at a time, cook the tacos in the hot oil until golden brown.

This was OK, but we thought it needed more seasonings. I just cooked the pork whole in my slow cooker all day until it shredded itself. I cooked it in chicken broth. I will try this again with more seasonings such as Fiesta Fajita, add some green chili peppers and fry the shells without the meat in them because the first one I did as written and the pork mixture got oil in it.

I thought this was pretty good. I used leftover pork roast, flour tortillas, and added salsa.

This was fabulous. I did use flour tortillas instead of corn because that is what I had on hand (and did not fold in half but fried flat like a quesadilla) and did add about 1 tablespoon of dry taco seasoning. The whole family loved it. I was looking for a great way to use up leftover pork roast as it always seems to get thrown out, and this is now where all of our leftover port roast will go. Very delicious!! Will definitely be making again as everyone is already asking when we can have them next. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.
