sous-vide pulled pork tacos
I love a taco dinner. Loads of little pots of things to DIY your plate: a blend of crisp, cool, spicy, chewy, but all tasty. These pulled pork tacos, or to give them their proper name carnitas, are a great alternative to mince or chicken.
I went sous-vide with this; you could slow cook these shoulder steaks but sous-vide gives you the perfect and controllable combination of tender and bursting with fatty flavour. And of course you could leave it in there longer than needed and it wouldn’t be a problem.
Any combination of citrus and spices would work well. I’ve used lime and coriander as a classic combo but lemon and chilli would be good too! And no taco meal is complete without your fixin’s. Make sure your beans, salsa, salad or whatever else is on the table ready for people to help themselves. My flatbread recipe is here if you want to make your own too – not quite the same as a corn tortilla but it’s hard to get mesa in the UK.
