Sous-Vide Method (suggested):
Place the pulled pork bag in a large stock pot and fill it with water until it’s 3/4 full. Bring the pot to a simmer for 6 minutes. Slowly remove the bag with tongs and set it aside. Open and remove the meat into a bowl. Don’t forget to add some Sweet & Spicy BBQ sauce for more flavour!
Add the pork to a medium sized saucepan with 1/4 cup of water. Turn on the heat and set to medium and cover the pan with a lid. Be sure to stir occasionally and heat until it’s 165°F or nearly boiling hot.
Unwrap the tortillas and put them in the microwave. Wrap them with paper towel or cover them with Saran wrap. Microwave for 30 seconds.
Pan Fried Method:
Add a bit of vegetable oil to a medium frying pan and set the heat to medium. Fry each side of the tortilla for 20 seconds or less and be sure it does not turn brown.
Green Onion & Lime
Slice green onions on a cutting board for your garnish. Cut a lime into wedges and set them aside.
Plating and Building
Option 1: Build As You Go:
Let’s build your own taco; it’s our favourite way to have this dish! Take a tortilla and add a little crema. Add some coleslaw and pulled pork then crumble some cotija cheese onto the pork. Add green onion and cilantro and finally squeeze a lime segment overtop if you want!
Option 2: Pre-Plate:
Build all your tacos ahead of time and place on a platter.
1/2 pack Corn Tortillas
1lb Pulled Pork
3 sprigs Green Onion
1/4 bunch Cilantro
4oz Cotija Cheese
1 bottle Sweet & Spicy BBQ Sauce
