Mexican Pulled Pork Taco (Cochinita)


Pork Marinade

Pickled Red Onion

To serve


Combine all marinade ingredients in a food processor and blitz to form a smooth paste. 

Place pork in a pressure cooker or large pot and pour over marinade. Close the lid and cook for 1 hour on low setting or 2.5 to 3 hours on low heat in a regular pot. While pork is cooking prepare the pickled onion by combining onion, lime juice and sea salt in a bowl. Set the onion aside for 1 hour to pickle. Once tender, use 2 forks to shred the pork. 

Cook tortillas directly on open fire for maximum heat and crispy edges. Heat on one side for about 10 seconds and flip over for another 10 seconds. If you’d prefer to use a frypan, cook tortillas over dry heat. Cover tortillas with a tea towel to keep warm and soft. 

To serve fill warm tortilla with pork, pickled onion, cabbage and coriander.
