Cumin Pork Tacos- Shredded pork roasted in an awesome blend of spices, and beer bath is topped with coleslaw & salsa then wrapped in a warm tortilla. Yum!


    • 45 pound pork roast (loin, shoulder, etc.),
    • spoonful of lard
    • 5 cloves garlic, minced,
    • 1 tablespoon sea salt,
    • 1 teaspoon cumin,
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder,
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper,
    • 1 teaspoon oregano,
    • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper,
    • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder,
    • 4 tablespoons cider vinegar,
    • ½ cup orange juice,
    • 12 ounce beer of choice,
    • Corn tortillas,
    • Cabbage slaw
    • Crumbled cheese
    • Salsa


    1. Sprinkle the roast all over with the minced garlic.
    2. In a small bowl, combine the sea salt, cumin, chili powder, black pepper, oregano, cayenne pepper, and cocoa powder.
    3. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the roast and use your fingers to rub it into the meat.
    4. Sear the roast in the lard over medium-high heat until browned on all sides. (I used my dutch oven.) 
    5. Pour the orange juice, apple cider vinegar, and beer into the dutch oven.
    6. Cover and bake in a 275-degree oven for 6-7 hours, or until it shreds apart easily with a fork. Remove from the oven, let cool slightly, and shred up the meat – removing any gristle or bone.
    7. Pour the liquid from the pan back over the shredded meat.
    8. Serve a heaping scoop of the shredded pork atop a warm corn tortilla, topping it with cabbage slaw, crumbled cheese, and salsa.
