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!
