Total: 15Serves: 4
2 tablespoons Light Brown Sugar
1/2 tablespoon Ground Cumin
1/2 tablespoon Chili Powder
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Mustard Powder
3/2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
1 teaspoon Black Pepper
3 pounds Boneless Pork Shoulder or Butt


1 cup Apple Juice
2 ounces Cheddar Cheese

grated (about ½ cup)

1/4 small Red Onion

thinly sliced

1/2 cup Cilantro

roughly chopped fresh

1/2 cup Jo's Salsa

see Magnolia Table, Volume 1 or salsa of your choice

8 to 10 Corn Tortillas

homemade (see page 31) or store-bought


Step 1 : Pulled Pork

In a medium bowl, mix the brown sugar, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, mustard powder, salt, and pepper. Rub the pork with the seasoning mixture until well coated.

Step 2 : Pulled Pork

Place the pork in a slow cooker and pour the apple juice and 1 cup water on top. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, until the pork shreds easily with a fork.

Step 3 : Pulled Pork

Place the pork on a platter and shred all the meat with two forks. Return the meat to the slow cooker with its juices and keep warm until ready to use (or refrigerate the pork in its juices and reheat when ready).

Step 4 : Tacos

In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, char the tortillas for 1 minute on each side, until browning begins. You want the tortillas to still be malleable, not hard or crispy.

Step 5 : Tacos

Layer the pulled pork, Cheddar, onion, cilantro, and salsa on the tortillas and serve.
