Description

Holiday Apple Cider Pulled Pork Tacos are an easy meal to make at the holidays.


Ingredients

For the pulled pork

  • 1 8-lb. pork butt or shoulder
  • 2 ½ cups Martinelli’s Cider or Apple Juice, divided
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Freshly ground black pepper

For the tacos

  • Corn tortillas
  • 1 or more apples
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup arugula leaves, washed and dried
  • Honey, for drizzling

Instructions

  1. Trim excess fat from the meat. Place in a slow cooker. Top with 2 cups Martinelli’s Cider or Apple Juice. Sprinkle with cinnamon, cloves, salt and peppers. Drizzle with remaining 1/2 cup cider/juice. Cook on high for 6 to 8 hours, until pork is cooked and falls off the bone.
  2. Transfer to a baking dish. Use two forks to shred pork. Remove any excess fat.
  3. Cut apples into matchsticks — to do this, quarter then slice them vertically and horizontally to get long and skinny pieces.
  4. Warm tortillas. Fill with pork and top with apple matchsticks, dried cranberries and arugula leaves. Drizzle with honey. Serve immediately.
