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.

    I love that this is a slow cooker recipe. I have been wanting to try more slow cooker recipes so I will have to add this one to the list. Taco Tuesdays are the best!
