My slow cooker is my saving grace when there just don’t seem to be enough hours in the day. These slow cooker pork tacos make taco night (one of my favorite “fast” food meals) even easier. Make pulled pork tacos in tortillas, or do as we often do, and make taco bowls — perfect for the gluten free, low carb, keto crowd!

This recipe for slow cooker pork tacos starts with a pork roast. You can use a pork loin roast or a pork shoulder, depending on your personal preferences. The slow cooker (I like this one with the locking lid) will transform either into a tender, flavorful pulled pork meat for tacos.

Slow cooker meals do require some planning ahead. But if you assemble the ingredients for pulled pork tacos before you head out for the day, you’ll come home to a wonderfully fragrant kitchen with dinner almost ready! Just shred the pork and make up a pot of rice or beans to go with it. We like to chop up tomatoes, slice avocados, and offer extra onions — diced white onions or sliced green onions — for our onion lovers. Cilantro? That’s always optional, but we love it!
