Pulled Pork Tacos

When friends come round the best dishes are always simple, hassle free, fun and satisfying. Pulled pork tacos in my opinion tick every single box. They allow you time to hang out with your pals and you don't need to be a master chef to cook them up either
Hungry hands dive into the table, tortillas are grabbed, piles of steaming caramalised, salty  pulled pork disappear quickly while coleslaw by the bucket full with fresh crispy salad is eaten up.
A sociable winner, these are cheap to make and require minimal effort , working very well with Raspberry and Strawberry mohitos (drunk while cooking, at the table or for a desert) [take this smoothie and substitute oats for a tsp of honey and a shot of tequilla]

  2. With half an hour to go it's time to make the rest the dish. For the coleslaw, chop your cabbage, onions and carrots. Add your mayonaise and place in a bowl. Prepare a salad of your choice, a find romanian lettace hearts work best. Cook your rice for 20 minutes. While the rice is cooking, take your pork out of the crock pot and simply shred using two forks.
