Spicy ginger, lemon grass, and sweet BBQ and slow cooked pork make for an irresistible dinner. A perfect meal for company or a date night these Slow Cooker Korean BBQ Tacos will have everyone going back for seconds and thirds!
This. Is. My. Favorite. Dinner. You might think I say that a lot. And I probably do, but this dinner has a way of solving all your problems. Try being stressed about anything while eating this sweet, spicy, tangy, crunchy meal of pure perfection. I could eat these Korean BBQ tacos every night for the rest of my life!
This is one of the first meals I remember my boyfriend cooking for me, and really helped seal the deal that he was a keeper. As I’ve said before Taco Tuesday is a must in our house, but often we add a Taco Saturday on to make this for company. It’s such a crowd pleaser, even our neighbors two year old was eating them!
As if being delicious wasn’t enough, have I mentioned that this was a slow cooker recipe. Yeah, slow cooker! AKA the easiest way to make dinner ever. Growing up I hated the crock pot, I thought it was made for making dry, bland food like corn beef and cabbage. But this recipe really changes the crock pot game.
These tacos are not complete without some quick kimchi, the spice perfect balances out all the sweet from the BBQ sauce. The best way to eat them it fill a crunchy shell with some kimchi and top it with some shredded pork. The warm pork wilts the slaw slightly. My goodness, I am drooling just thinking about it.
