SRC Reveal: Hawaiian Pulled Pork Tacos

It's time for Group B's June 2015 Secret Recipe Club reveal. This month I was assigned to Flavors by Four penned by the mother-daughter team of Susan and Nicole. How awesome is that?! They have been blogging since the end of 2010. They share: "We love to eat therefore we enjoy cooking and baking. We are always looking for new tasty recipes to share with each other. We will take turns blogging about the delicious dishes we find. Enjoy our Flavors!"

For June's SRC reveal, I decided to make their Hawaiian Slow Cooker Pulled Pork. Well, a version of it...since I don't have a slow cooker. But I couldn't resist the flavors, so I adapted. The flavors were amazing. Because we had just had pulled pork sandwiches this week, I made this batch into soft tacos. Delicious.


  • 3 to 4 pound boneless pork roast
  • olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 T ground paprika
  • 1 t freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 fresh tomato, chopped
  • 1 C pineapple juice
  • 1/2 C soy sauce
  • 1 T ginger syrup
  • 1/2 C organic dark brown sugar
  • 1 t grated fresh ginger
  • corn tortillas, for serving
  • cheese, grated, for serving
  • salsa, for serving

Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven. Quickly onion in hot olive oil. Brown the pork roast completely for approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Add in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 3 to 4 hours. By that point, you should have just a little bit of liquid left in the pot. Remove from the heat. Then, using two forks, shred the pork. It will absorb most of the liquid. Return the pot to the heat and cook until the liquid is completely absorbed. You can cook until your preferred crispness.

To Serve
Spoon pork onto corn tortillas and top with cheese and salsa. 


  1. Hi Camilla,
    What a great Taco, we would just love the addition of the pineapple flavors, looking forward to trying this recipe. Thanks for taking such good care of our Group B in the SRC!

  2. I am going to make this using my slow cooker. Great choice for this month

  3. What a great way to use our Hawaiian Pulled Pork!! Looks great :) Glad you enjoyed it!!

  4. I don't use my slow cooker often enough in the summertime. This would be a great recipe to use in it! YUM!

  5. This looks fantastic and I can't wait to try. But, how do you not have a slow cooker? :)

  6. mmm... tacos. You need a slow cooker! They're so versatile and you can make so much healthy food in them. We have a really really really basic model and it's been in regular use in our home for the past 6 or so years.

  7. Yummy yum yum! Loving the sound of those flavors. Maybe I'll make this version since I need to make some pulled pork soon. :)

  8. I had to track this down cuz my linky didn't work...I love slow cooker tacos!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
