Pulled pork tacos

This is a very yummy way to do pork tacos.

3-1/2lb boneless pork shoulder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 onions, finely chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp chili powder
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup salsa
2 tbsp tomato paste

soft taco shells - i like to fry mine in a little oil than fill it with the pork


Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. In large Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown pork all over. Transfer to slow cooker.

Add onions, garlic and chili powder to Dutch oven; fry, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 4 minutes.

Add chicken stock, stirring to scrape up brown bits from bottom of pan; scrape into slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 10 hours or until pork is tender.

Transfer pork to cutting board. Trim off excess fat; with 2 forks, shred pork. Return pork to slow cooker.

Add corn, salsa and tomato paste. Cover and cook on high for 15 minutes or until thickened. Put meat in taco shells
Garnishes: Serve lettuce, tomatoes cheese and sour cream in separate small bowls for everyone to garnish tacos.
