My husband said these tacos were “freakin awesome” lol. We were talking about how funny it is that we are used to all these foods that imitate other foods. Example, coconut flour tortillas or zucchini noodles. I told him the other day that someone made homemade noodles, and his response was “out of what”. As if everyone makes noodles out of veggies…forgetting not everyone eats low carb…too funny.
I would love to make french bread and ravioli and all that again, but I just cant do it I have too much weight to lose. Maybe I will do it for Christmas since I always have in the past, and its just 1 day a year, so it should be fine. Plus, by then, I hope this extra weight will come off. Here is to hoping!
2 lbs pork shoulder or any pork roast
1/2 onion, sliced thin
1 Tbsp Paprika
2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
3/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar
2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tbsp Dijon
1 cup water
Coconut Flour Tortillas:
1/2 cup Coconut Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp salt
6 Egg Whites
3 Tbsp Butter, softened
Unsweetened Almond Milk, add 1 Tbsp at a time
1 large tomato, chopped
1/4 mango, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 jalapeno, diced
1 lime, juiced
salt and pepper
I know this seems like a lot in writing, but it really isn’t.
To make the pork, take out your crock pot, and place the sliced onion at the bottom.
Next, rub the pork with the Dijon mustard, then sprinkle on the paprika, salt, pepper, cayenne and garlic powder.
Place the seasoned pork on top of the onions.
Add the red wine vinegar, Worcestershire and water around the pork, and cover with the lid and cook on the 8 hour setting.
About a half hour before your pork, add all your salsa ingredients in a bowl and mix together and refrigerate.
To make the tortillas…
In a large bowl, add the coconut flour, salt and baking powder.
Next, add the melted butter and eggs and whisk together. Then add your milk 1 Tbsp at a time. You want the batter to be like crepe batter.
Heat a small skillet on medium heat, and add a little coconut oil (or whichever oil you prefer).
Spoon a little bit of the batter into the pan, and swirl the pan around until the bottom is thinly coated with batter.
Once the sides begin to lift up, flip the tortilla and cook on the other side for about 1 minute.
By now, your pork should be done so you want to shred it up in the juices in the crock pot with a fork.
To assemble, place a scoop of pork in the coconut flour tortilla, and top with shredded lettuce and mango salsa.
