Best Pork Tacos Recipe


This is the best pork tacos recipe. The marinade takes this dish over the top.

Start the night before and let the pork soak up the marinade so it falls off the bone when it's cooked. Authentic Mexican food recipes from scratch below.

BEST PORK TACOS
(Pork Carnitas Recipe)

3 lbs pork shoulder loin (or country-style ribs)
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 TBS cumin
3 TBS homemade chili powder
1 TBS homemade cayenne pepper
1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade onion powder
4 whole garlic cloves
2 bay leaves
2 cups oil (canola, olive oil)
8 to 12 homemade corn tortillas

Garnish
diced onion
guacamole, recipe below
chopped cilantro
chopped tomatoes
lime

Put meat in a 9x13 inch dish. Mix the dry ingredients with the oil and pour over the meat. Marinate overnight or for a minimum of 6 hours, covered in the refrigerator.

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees and bake uncovered for 45 to 60 minutes. When cooled, chop meat into cubes or pull into strips. Serve on corn tortillas and top with garnishes listed. Squeeze with fresh lime before serving.





AUTHENTIC GUACAMOLE RECIPE

My fresh authentic guacamole recipe is awesome, but I want to give you a few pointers so it turns out great every time.

Secret #1 - Buy high quality Haas avocados. When choosing your avocados choose ones that are blemish free and have a slight give when squeezed lightly.

Secret #2 - ONLY USE FRESH INGREDIENTS. Seriously, do not put in canned tomatoes, fake lemon juice, dried cilantro or garlic powder; it ruins it. Some use lemon and some use lime in their guacamole, just use what you like - but make sure it's fresh.



Homemade Guacamole Recipe from Scratch

3 fresh ripe avocados - peeled, pitted, mashed
2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
3 TBS fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 fresh lime, juiced
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp fresh garlic, minced

In a large bowl, mash the avocados and add the lime juice and salt; mix well to combine. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
