Weeknight Party Girl :: Slow Cooked Street Tacos

** UPDATE **
Scroll to the bottom to watch my segment on Q13 Fox News!

Tune into Q13 FOX News this morning at 8:45am and this afternoon at 4:15 to see all of my Super Bowl ideas!  Hope to see you there!  Go Seahawks!


So technically, not a Weeknight Party, but the Super Bowl is one of the ultimate 'simple' party times of the year.  We gather, we toast, we cheer, we eat.  But we must eat in front of the television because even the ads can't be missed.  And so, by the nature of the event, we must eat and entertain as if it were a weeknight.  The great thing is that you have more time to prepare for the weekend which makes my Slow Cooked Street Tacos the absolute perfect snack.  The meat cooks for three hours {start when you get up} and then it's done.  Guests help themselves, you watch the game.





1 (7.75) ounce can El Pato Salsa de Chile Fresco
1/2 cup ketchup
8 whole cloves garlic
1 tablespoon oregano
2 1/2 pounds pork shoulder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
:: to serve ::
corn tortillas
fresh chopped cilantro
sour cream
salsa
shredded cheese
guacamole


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Fill a heavy cast iron pot with ketchup, El Pato, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper.  Stir to combine all ingredients.  Chop meat into 8 even sized pieces and place in the pot.  Bring to a boil over medium heat rotating pieces of meat to coat completely in sauce.
Cover pot and place in preheated oven.  Bake 3 hours.
Remove from oven and shred beef with two forks.  Serve along side toppings and warmed tortillas. 
Serves 4
