Shredded Pork Taco Filling

Rated as 4.56 out of 5 Stars

"This amalgamation of recipes produces a very mild shredded pork taco filling: tasty, but not as intensely Mexican as one might prefer. I suggest using this as a basis and adapting to suit with the addition of various peppers, sauces, spices, etc. The true beauty of this recipe is that it can be made in a pressure cooker in about an hour. Serve in corn or flour tortillas."

  1. Combine the garlic powder, cumin, coriander, oregano, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Thoroughly rub the spice mixture over the pork.
  2. Place the roast in a pressure cooker with the beef broth, bay leaves, and onion over medium-high heat. Seal the cooker, and bring to full pressure; reduce the heat to maintain high pressure, and cook for 45 minutes.
  3. Remove the pressure cooker from the heat and allow the pressure to drop naturally. Transfer the pork to a serving bowl and shred the meat with forks.

This was just okay for me. I followed the recipe exactly but the pork itself did not have a lot of flavor. I even shredded the meat and let it sit in the broth (which was very flavorful) for 3...

Made as a sope rather than a taco. It's a mix of corn masa and water and then usually either lightly fried or pan fried a bit and then shaped into a little bowl. This pork recipe goes great as a...

Thank you for the great recipe! Nicely seasoned, we loved it!

This is very good. Thanks for saying ahead of the recipe that this isn’t too intensely flavored. I spiced it up just a little more, and it was amazing.

Easy, tasty, and shredded nicely; however, didn't love it.

I have made this over a dozen times. I tend to double all of the ingredients except the beef broth. I do add extra, hot cayenne ( about an extra 1/4 teaspoon). I cut the meat up into baseball ...
