Southern Living Week: Slow-Cooker Pork Tacos Al Pastor With All TheFixings

On Wednesdays, we have piano lessons until 5:30pm so getting a dinner on the table before 7pm is a bit tricky!  I turn to my trusty crockpot to help me out!  There are two low cooker recipes in the 7 meals featured in Southern Living.  The beef roast is planned for Sunday.  The other recipe was the  Slow-Cooker Pork Tacos Al Pastor With All The Fixings.  This is a versatile dish.  
I did nachos while the boys had tacos.  There was very little prep, 10 minutes in the morning 
and 15 minutes about a half hour before serving.

Here's the morning action:

Trim off most of the fat on the pork roast.  Rub generously with salt and place in a slow cooker.  Pour the bottle of beer over the roast.  Add half of the can of pineapple chunks to the crockpot and toss the remainder in a blender with the chilies in adobo sauce.  Purée for 30 seconds and pour over the roast. Cook on low for 8-10 hours and enjoy the smell when you come back to your kitchen :o)

30 minutes before serving, shred the pork and remove the bone if there is one.  Put together the remaining ingredients into a sweet salsa.  Serve with cheese, avocado, and any other taco fixings you like and enjoy!
