Ingredients :
  • 1-5-6 pound(s) pork shoulder blade roast boneless
  • 1/3 cup(s) rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon(s) Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon(s) pepper
  • 1 tablespoon(s) onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon(s) garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon(s) paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 24 - corn tortillas
  • 2 cup(s) diced onions
  • 1 cup(s) chopped cilantro
  • 2 cup(s) chopped tomatoes
  • 3 - avocados, sliced in 1/8 slices
  • 3 cup(s) shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup(s) sliced radishes
  • 3 - limes, sliced in wedges
  • 1 jar(s) La Victoria green salsa (16 oz, optional)
Intructions :
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Sprinkle roast with rice vinegar all over. Then rub with the dry rub mixture all over so it completely covers the meat. (Depending on how big a roast you make, you might have to adjust the dry rub mixture, making a little more.)
  • Put roast in a deep baking pan and cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 2-1/2-3 hours depending on how big the roast is
  • Uncover roast. Remove most of the fat dripping don't remove it all. Reserve about 1-cup of drippings (very important!)
  • Shred roast with two forks and spread out in baking pan
  • Return to oven and bake about 30 to 45 min until meat is crispy and tender. (If your roast gets too dry while roasting, add the 1 cup dripping you reserved for later and bake for another 5 min. so everything can incorporate.) Remove from oven and your meat is ready
  • While your meat is cooking, you can chop, slice, and shred all your fixing. You can warm your tortillas right before you serve them and keep them warm in a tortilla warmer
  • I set everything buffet style so everyone can fix their tacos to their liking. I also put a big dish of rice and beans to go along with the tacos. A margarita or big tall glass of beer goes great with these tacos. Enjoy!
