    I made the shredded pork for tacos this weekend. I replaced the powdered garlic and onion with about 3/4 of a cup of fresh minced versions, and added a roasted chipotle pepper to the boil. Absolutely delicious!

      Hi Sage,

      Awesome!! I like your changes, especially the chipotle, that sounds delicious 🙂

      Thanks for your input, I’m sure there will be others that try it the way you made it, including me!

      Thanks again and Happy Cooking!

    I love this recipe and it is definitely one of my rotational things. I was wondering though. could you do this with beef and chicken as well? I think the pork is great, but just didn’t know if the seasonings would work with beef and pork as well.

    Thanks,
    Chris

      Hi Chris,

      That’s so nice to hear! I’m glad you’re making this a rotational recipe 🙂

      As for shredded chicken and beef tacos I’ve got you covered. The seasonings are basically the same and I happen to have recipes for both. Click the links below to find recipes for both.

    This recipe is fantastic. We made this with 1 lb pork tenderloin using the same ingredients… Gone in a heartbeat

      Hi Cathy,

      I’m so glad you like it! Pork tenderloin works great for this recipe and is less “fatty”. Great job in changing it up to suit your needs. I always encourage imagination and ingenuity 🙂

      And ya… It doesn’t last at my house either.

      Take care and Happy Cooking!

      Hi Kellie,

      That’s fantastic! I’m so glad everyone liked them so much. I think restaurants are nice but when you can make the same things (or better) at home, it’s all the more special 🙂

      Thanks for commenting and Happy Cooking!

    I’m will try these tomorrow using thick, boneless pork chops and a slow cooker. After searing, I’m thinking I should put the meat in the crock and add water to cover by an inch – set on LOW for about 6 hours. Do you have any other suggestions?

      Hi Stacy,

      That’s sounds good. The meat is the most important thing. What you plan sounds right. Keep an eye on it during the the slow cook process. It will take awhile but let it do it’s thing. From what you plan it should come out fine.

      Happy Cooking!

        Hi Ging,

        I’ve never made this in a crock pot but it should come out great, it’ll just take a little longer and you wont need as much water. Give it a try 🙂

          How much water would I need if I put it in the crock pot?Could I cook it on low for six hours? When I make it your way it’s really good but I can’t get the pork to shred. What am I doing wrong?

            Hi Daiana,

            Great question, thanks for asking.

            Typically you’d add just enough water to cover in your crock pot and cook 6 to 8 hours, that should be about right.

            As far as making sure the meat shreds, you just keep cooking it until it does. You may have to add more water but the longer it cooks the more tender it gets. You will have to use a wood spoon or spatula to break down the pork.

            Any type of meat will shred if boiled/simmered long enough but you’ll have to help it along by breaking it up as you go. Once shredded just boil off any excess liquid if there is any but don’t let it dry out on you. So if you notice it’s not quite tender enough just keep cooking it and adding water if needed.

            Hope this helps and Happy Cooking!

      Hi Teresa,

      You can use whatever type of pork you like. Just be sure to trim off most of the fat and follow the rest of the recipe as is 🙂

      Let me know if you have any more questions, I’m happy to help.
      Happy Cooking!
