The Un-barbeque! Sweet ‘n Tangy Pulled Pork Tacos #Recipe #HormelFamily

As the month draws to a close I just want to remind you all that May is National Barbeque Month.  For my family that means, well, we don’t currently have a grill so it doesn’t mean much as far as having an outdoor barbeque goes.  But that doesn’t mean that we didn’t enjoy a delicious “un-barbeque” dinner of Sweet ‘n Tangy Pulled Pork Tacos.  In some regions of the country this recipe is known as Café Rio pulled pork tacos.  If you’re from Utah or Idaho then you know how people idolize this dish.

We cooked a pork roast from a wild hog my hubs shot while out hunting with his brothers. If you don’t happen to have any wild hogs handy you can always substitute a Hormel Always Tender Roast Flavored Pork Roast.

Though there are a lot of ingredients it really is a fairly simple recipe.

Here is the recipe for the taco meat…
