Why I LOVE Leftover Pulled Pork & You Will TOO!

There are many reasons to love pulled pork! BBQ pulled pork is super easy to make in the slow cooker with just a few ingredients, and because you use a Boston Butt Roast, you make a whole bunch of pulled pork for not a lot of cash. It's true! Pulled pork is relatively cheap to make and leftover pulled pork can be used in many different recipes. I can usually make 3-4 different dinners when I make my BBQ Slow Cooker Pulled Pork recipe.

I'll slow cook a 3-4 lb Boston Butt on the weekend and mix in my favorite BBQ sauce for Slow Cooker BBQ pulled pork sandwiches. It's an easy dinner recipe when I serve with my recipe for the Best Coleslaw Ever. Then the pulled pork leftovers I store in the fridge to use throughout the week for quick and easy dinners. It's meal planning made easy!

BBQ Pulled Pork Tacos

One of those quick and easy dinners we enjoy using leftover pulled pork is my BBQ Pulled Pork Tacos recipe. Using leftover pulled pork makes quick work of this family favorite taco recipe. It's a must-make recipe when we have leftover pulled pork!

These BBQ tacos are so tasty! The tangy BBQ pulled pork and sweet coleslaw is an amazing flavor combination. It's a little bit tangy and a little bit sweet, but a WHOLE LOT DELICIOUS! Have you ever tried a sweet coleslaw generously piled on BBQ pulled pork? If not, you definitely should give it a go TODAY!

How to Make BBQ Pulled Pork Tacos

  1. First and foremost, make my Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork recipe (click on link in ingredient list for recipe) so you can have leftovers to make BBQ Pulled Pork Tacos and other delicious leftover pulled pork recipes during the busy week.
  2. Typically, when I make my Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork recipe, I make a double batch of my recipe for The BEST Coleslaw Ever. That way, in addition to leftover BBQ pulled pork, I have leftover coleslaw making these Pulled Pork Tacos one of the easiest dinner recipes ever!
  3. Pick up your favorite flour tortillas at the grocery store and when ready to make dinner simply reheat the BBQ pulled pork in the microwave. I also like to heat my tortillas. Sometimes I'll go the extra mile and get my cast iron grill pan nice and hot and toast those flour tortillas until they have a nice little crisp to them. So good!
  4. Fill each tortilla with BBQ pulled pork, top with a nice helping of coleslaw, and garnish with fresh cilantro if you like. I highly recommend the cilantro! It adds such a nice flavor that compliments the pulled pork, but if you are one of those folks who can't stand cilantro, then by all means, leave it off.
  5. All that is left to do is to enjoy your BBQ Pulled Pork Tacos! Easy peasy!
