One of the perks of our move to Michigan has been getting to enjoy all four seasons. Back in North Carolina, Spring and Fall were luxuries only offered in small doses. As the cooler temperatures set in, I’m getting more and more excited about all of the amazing meals I can make using my crock pot, like my Mongolian Pulled Pork Tacos!
I often work long hours. When those are added to my roughly 3 hour a day commute, the last thing I want to do when I get home is stand in front of the stove. That’s what makes my crock pot so amazing! I am always on the lookout for ways to put it to use. One of the things I’ve learned through may hours in the kitchen (and probably even more hours on Pinterest) is that crock pots are for so much more than soups and stews!
Did you know that 77% of consumers eat Chinese food, but only 25% make it at home? Why? It’s viewed as being too complicated to make. Trust me, Chinese-inspired meals don’t have to be complicated. Products like P.F. Chang’s® Home Menu Sauces and Hunt’s® Tomatoes make it simple! The sauces are versatile – not only are they great for stir fry, but they can also be used as dips, marinade and in the crock pot too! You can tell that these sauces were developed with really unique ingredients. Their premium, distinct flavors do all the heavy lifting for you! And, Hunt’s® Tomatoes, those are a pantry staple for me. I use them constantly! They can be used in virtually anything from appetizers to your main course.
My recipe for Mongolian Pulled Pork Tacos is a modern twist on Mongolian BBQ. In this recipe I use simple, flavorful ingredients like P.F. Chang’s® Home Menu Mongolian Style BBQ Sauce and Hunt’s® Petite Diced Tomatoes to help me accomplish my dinner goals. Paired with fresh fruit and vegetables, I have a dish that is rich in flavor and texture without spending all day in the kitchen.
Who wants to give my Mongolian Pulled Pork Tacos a try? It only takes a few minutes and a few ingredients to get started. Grab the full recipe below! If you love it, don’t forget to share it on Yummly, Pinterest or your other favorite recipe sharing site!
- Flour Tortillas or Romaine Lettuce Hearts (low-carb option)
- 1 (14.5 oz) can Hunt's® Petite Diced Tomatoes
- 1 (2 lb) Pork Tenderloin
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
- 1/2 cup julienned Carrots
- 1/2 Granny Smith Apple, diced
- 1/2 cup P.F. Chang’s® Home Menu Mongolian Style BBQ Sauce
- 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
- 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon Sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
- 1/2 Granny Smith Apple, julienned
- 1/2 cup julienned Carrots
- 1 cup shredded Kale, stems removed
- Drain the tomatoes and spread them over the bottom of your crock pot.
- Place the pork tenderloin on top of the tomatoes.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Top the pork tenderloin with apples and carrots.
- Drizzle with sauce.
- Cook over low heat for 6-7 hours, or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.
- While the pork is cooking, continue on to prepare the slaw.
- In a bowl, combine the mayo, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper.
- Gently fold in the apples, carrots and kale.
- Refrigerate until ready to use.
- When the pork reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F, shred with two forks. It will fall apart quite easily.
- Serve the pork in warmed flour tortillas, topped with slaw. Drizzle with additional sauce if desired. For a low-carb option, you may serve the pork and slaw in Romaine lettuce leaves instead of tortillas.
