Pulled Pork Tacos

I absolutely adore tacos, and I dream to visit Mexico one day to eat proper tacos in Mexico city. For now, I have to make my own tacos at home. I’ve already made crispy fish tacos in my second book, and I have played with vegan and vegetarian tacos (check out my autumnal vegan tacos, my sweetcorn and feta tacos and my veggie summer tacos). Today, I’m bringing you my absolute favourite to date: pulled pork tacos.

The pork is slow-cooked for 4 hours in the oven, with beer, orange juice, oregano and lots of garlic – and then pulled apart before serving. I’m pairing the meat with pickled red onions and guacamole. The guacamole in this recipe is quite basic, as there are so many flavours going in in these tacos that all you really need is the creaminess of mashed avocado to balance it all out. For my proper guacamole recipe, turn to the Luxembourg Nachos recipe here.

By the way, these beautiful corn tortillas are handmade in Luxembourg, by the guys behind Secretos Del Maiz. They make the tortillas from scratch once a week and deliver them in Luxembourg – mine are still warm every time they drop them. You should also order their Nachos, they’re absolutely fantastic!

You can watch me make these tacos here.

This recipe was created as part of my “Staycation” show, inspiring people with recipes from my travels that they can recreate at home – to get us all to travel in our minds despite being stuck at home this summer…
