Pulled Pork Tacos

Here is one of my favourite dishes at the moment, Pulled Pork Tacos. The heart of this dish, as the name suggests, is succulent melt-in-your-mouth pork, complemented by home made fresh corn tortillas and tasty trimmings. This Mexican inspired fare is the perfect comfort food for cold days or for sharing with friends in summer alongside some ice-cold cervezas. If corn tortillas aren’t your thing, the pulled pork can also be enjoyed with fresh pasta or in a crusty baguette.
