    Prep time: 15 mins

    Cook time: 45 mins

  • Ingredients

    • 4 Mission® Gluten Free Tortillas

    • ½ cup Tamari sauce

    • 2 cups Orange juice

    • 2 tbsp. Chili-Garlic pepper sauce

    • 1 tbsp. Ginger, fresh, chopped

    • 2 tsps. Chinese five-spice powder

    • 2 cups Beef stock

    • 3 lbs. Pork shoulder

    • 2 cups Asian slaw, prepared

    • 4 Orange wedges

    • To taste Salt and pepper

  • Instructions

    • In a crock pot, combine tamari sauce, orange juice, chili-garlic pepper sauce, ginger, five-spice powder, and beef stock. Mix well to combine.

    • In a sauté, over medium-high heat, sear all the sides of the pork shoulder to caramelize the outside. Place seared shoulder in crock pot and cook on high for 5-6 hours, or low for 8-9 hours, or until fork tender.

    • Remove tender pork shoulder from the crock pot and allow to rest for 15 minutes on a plate. Reserve ½ cup liquid from crock-pot. Using a fork, shred the pork into desired sized pieces. Pour reserved liquid over shredded pork. Hold warm for assembly.

    • To assemble: Warm the tortillas by heating in a sauté pan over medium-low heat, or place into a storage bag with a damp paper towel and microwave for 20-30 seconds. Place ½ cup prepared Asian slaw into each warmed tortilla. Top the slaw with ½ cup pulled pork, and squeeze one orange wedge over the meat. Repeat for each tortilla shell. Serve.
