Pulled Pork Tacos #SRC

Yum
The Secret Recipe Club has a special reveal day today!  We are centered around BBQs and Picnics and I had the most delightful blog to sneak around called Well Dined.  Sarah is the blogger there and she and her husband, like us, are foodies who like to cook at home.  I think we could be great friends. Once, on a school dare, I dyed my hair pink and purple and turned out that I loved it!

There were a number of great recipes on Sarah's blog that suited for a picnic, like this Quinoa Strawberry Watermelon Salad, and I could really see me working with this recipe for Peeps Cookies to make a picnic version.  Ultimately though, I chose this recipe to feature from the blog.



I loved this recipe for a couple of big reasons:  one, it uses left over pork and two, it allows you to use your creativity!  Here's how the original recipe looked:

Pulled Pork and Vegetable Tacos
Remaining pulled pork, warmed (from Saturday night)
4-6 tortillas, warmed (I prefer whole wheat)
Remaining bean/corn/spinach mixture, warm or cold (from Friday night)
Mexican cheese blend (optional)
Scallions (optional)
Sour cream (optional)
Salsa or hot sauce (optional)
Divide the pork between the tortillas, top with the vegetable mixture and any other desired toppings.
Here's my take on it using it for a picnic.

Warm up the pulled pork and place it in a thermos.  Heat BBQ sauce and add to thermos.  Shake.
Warm up tortillas and wrap in foil, with a piece of waxed paper in between.  Put cheese, sour cream, salsa and sauteed vegetables in separate containers.  Pour peach iced tea into a large thermos with ice. Pack up a dessert of choice.  Pack up needed utensils and glassware.  Load up picnic basket and head to a park!

Unpack the basket and pass around the various supplies.  Assemble tacos.  Pour tea.  Keep dessert covered.  Eat and enjoy and don't forget the dessert!

Such easy, fun and enjoyable picnic when using leftovers as the base.  No stress, just an enjoyable day out in the sun!

  4. That sounds great to take to a picnic, I'm so glad it worked for you! I like seeing one of the meal plan recipes being used on it's own. I would love to see a picture of you with purple and pink hair! #unicornsquad

    1. Here's my cheat: I go to my favorite BBQ place, get a pound of their pulled pork (naked) and that's the meat I use. Yum.

  9. Pulled pork is so delicious and soft. It's the perfect meat to include in tacos and it maintains such great flavor in any recipe.

  10. I know someone who would love these. You say pulled pork and he's there. You say tacos and he's there. You say both and you can't pull him away!

  11. WE LOVE TACOS! I like this idea of using leftovers. If only my boys would stop eating all the food so we could actually have some! HA! It would be a great idea for me to double what I would normally make when we have pulled pork and then plan this meal later in the week. (Also, sour cream is NEVER optional! Yummmmmmm...... haha)

  13. My husband is a pulled pork fan and he would love this, but he'll want to put sour cream, salsa and cheese on it for sure. That's never optional in our house. :)

  21. I hope we can start having people over for picnics and potlucks at our house! That's one of the reasons I wanted to have the home we have. One day our backyard will be just right for that. Those pulled tacos sound delicious. I wanted to dye my hair purple when I was in middle school. =)

  22. Hahha I literally just made taco's last night! As a vegan I wouldn't use pork, but there are a few vegan meat alternatives that are similar to pulled pork. I also have some jackfruit in the pantry, that supposed to gives a similar texture!!! I might just be inspired to try out tacos with the jackfruit! thanks!

  25. I love the idea of keeping the pulled pork in a thermos for transporting it to a picnic. That should keep it nice and warm for tacos!

  26. Not a huge pork fan, but I could easily adapt this to a pulled chicken recipe. And let's not get started on tacos... love, love, and love. Great meal for these summer months, and you display them so nicely!
