Pork Tacos + Pineapple Crema
I'm REALLY obsessed with tacos al pastor right now. Seeing that I don't have any devices at home that can cook meat on a spit for hours on end, I decided to not try and do that, lol. I seasoned a pork shoulder with the same flavors as tacos al pastor and cooked the meat in a crockpot so that the pork turned into soft and juicy shredded meat.
Also, this is very much a long recipe. The best way to make it not feel like that is to start marinating the pork around dinner time and wake up and get it going in the crockpot in the morning so that it'll be ready by the next day's dinner time. It makes a lot of pork, I'd say to buy enough taco shells for around 6 people. You can refrigerate the leftover meat and it'll stay good for a few days.

Do you shred the pork then or did you buy it into pieces before going in the crockpot or marinade?

Hi!! The bit at the top explains that I cooked the shoulder so that it turned into shredded meat so you cook it as it comes and it will break apart / you’ll have to pull it apart a little after the 8 hours is up! :)

How important is the achiote paste? Can I leave it out or substitute it with something else?
