I had a pork shoulder in the freezer that I wanted to use and found this recipe. I love using the slow cooker, especially on those days when I don't really feel like cooking. Once the pork was cooked, I shredded it and served it in tacos. I had both hard and soft shells for variety and served this with yellow rice and frozen veggies. My kids love tacos so this was a hit with them. This was also their first time having hard taco shells which they loved. Their was very little hands-on cooking for this recipe. We served it with mexican blend shredded cheese, sour cream, and salsa. I am giving it two thumbs up though because everyone enjoyed the meal, and that doesn't happen very often!
