Tacos Tacos Tacos!

I think Jake would potentially eat tacos and pizza everyday of his life if he could. In fact when I am out of town I think he may do that. So in the end I have to find ways to mix things up a little when I make tacos because I on the other hand do not ejoy eating the same types of tacos over and over again.

So on this particular day I decided to take out my trusty crockpot and also pull out a pork loin and throw it in before I went to work. Thank goodness I did because it turned out great! I happened to add in some barbeque sauce and we had a delicious meal that I know I will repeat!


1 1/2 cups bbq sauce of your choice

bbq sauce

1/2 cup of water

3 green onions sautéed in salt and pepper and evoo (pictured)

1 yellow onion chopped sautéed in salt and pepper and evoo (pictured)

green onion satay

1-2 pork center cut loins (mine were pre seasoned but we like things with a lot of flavor so we added the onions for extra flavor)


Taco fixings -tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, beans, shells etc.


Put your pork loins, water, onions, bbq sauce (reserve 1/2 for later)  in the crock pot on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4 hours. I really felt that the sautéed onions gave the pork extra flavor and tang because they infused the pork with extra flavor as they cooked throughout the day.

The pork will become tender enough that you will be able to shred it with two forks.

Remove the pork from the crockpot and put it in a serving platter drizzle remaining bbq sauce on top.

(At this point you can also take the green onions and roughly chop to add to your tacos if you didn’t already add them to the crockpot before, this is up to you.)

This recipe is quick and easy and also a crowd pleaser!

I hope you enjoy
