Green Chili Pulled Pork Taco

Do you ever have one of “those days”? I bought my hubby a new smart TV for his birthday and do I feel anything but “smart”. It has taken over 4 hours, two trips to the Comcast store and 3 separate conversations with a Tech. Finally got it figured out. Yeah! Now I have to program the smart remote. I think I will wait for another day. 

Today’s Taco Tuesday recipe is Green Chili Pulled Pork Taco.  The meat is cooked  in a pressure cooker. Pressure cookers are a great way to speed up the cook time. Think of them as a slow cooker on steroids.  It is the perfect way to put dinner on the table in a hurry.

How to cook the Pork in a Pressure Cooker

Braise small chunks of pork in the bottom of pressure cooker. Add 1 cup chicken stock. 1 tsp garlic powder and black pepper.   Turn heat to high and bring to boil chicken stock, put lid onto pot. Red button will push up when pressurized. Steam will begin to come out of the black pressure gauge hissing steadily. Turn heat to medium, set timer for 15 minutes.  Once timer goes off, remove from heat and reduce pressure naturally. Once released red button goes down.

Serve it street style with freshly grilled corn tortillas. Some of my favorite toppings include: shredded green cabbage, sliced avocado, diced  tomato and salty, crumbly cotija cheese.  Don’t get to carried away with toppings. Authentic street tacos are pretty basic. Not alot of extra stuff loaded into them.
