Hawaiian BBQ Pork Wonton Tacos

 

Not sure why I’ve been holding out on this goodness for so long. I made these Hawaiian bbq pork wonton tacos before I even went back east last month. My husband raved and raved about them, but I’ve been saving them. For a special occasion or something? Not sure. But enough is enough. Something this tasty needs to be shared with the world.

The best part is that your crock pot will do most of the work for you in this recipe. Some of my favorite dishes are the ones that start out in a slow cooker, like these Cream Cheese Chicken Taquitos. So much less work, so much good flavor, it’s just a win all around. The sauce on these tacos is the real kicker here. A little sweet, a little tangy, and a whole lot of yum! I may or may not have made a large batch of this sauce just for pouring on everything imaginable after the tacos were finished off. Oops. (Or not….)

What people are saying about these Hawaiian BBQ Pork Wonton Tacos

“I made these last night for dinner and they were awesome! I drizzled some Yum-Yum sauce over them before serving and it gave them a sweet and sour thing, my boyfriend couldn’t stop eating them. Tonight I will use the leftover pork and sauce in quesadillas. Thanks for the great recipe!” – Heather

“Wow these are the most amazing things in the whole world. Made them last night but instead of rolling them I put the wrappers in a cupcake pan and then stuffed them. Either way still amazing. Thank you so much for sharing. Well be making these over and over again ;)” – Melanie

“Made these for a luau party yesterday and they were a big hit! And the best part is that they were super simple to make. The smallest roast I could find was just under 2 lbs and it shredded perfectly after 4 hours on high in the crockpot. I did add a splash of water and pineapple juice to the crockpot because I was afraid the meat would be too dry otherwise – not sure if that made a difference or not, but it turned out great. Make extra sauce! You’re going to want more of that deliciousness 🙂” – Kristi

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 4 hours
Total Time: 4 hours 30 minutes
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 24-30 small wonton wrappers (can be found in the chilled Asian section near the produce)
  • 1 pound pork roast
  • 4 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 2 teaspoons salt (sea salt if you have it)
  • 2 cups broccoli slaw
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped

Sauce

  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup pineapple juice (I used the juice from a can of crushed pineapple)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger

Instructions

  • Place pork roast in the slow cooker. Add liquid smoke, and sprinkle pork with salt. Cook on low 8 hours or on high 4 hours. 30 minutes before serving, Remove the pork from the slow cooker and shred with two forks.
  • Preheat oven to 400. Spray a baking sheet generously with cooking spray. Lay wonton wrappers out on a flat surface. Put 3-4 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of shredded pork into the center of each wonton. Top with 1-2 tablespoons broccoli slaw and some red onion slices. Wet your finger tips with the water, then pinch two opposite corners of each wonton together so they stick together. Place wonton tacos on prepared baking sheet in a single layer, not touching. Spray tacos generously with cooking spray. Bake 10-15 minutes until wontons get crisp and edges begin to brown.
  • While the tacos are baking, prepare the sauce. Combine all sauce ingredients in a medium sauce pan and whisk over medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and allow to thicken until tacos are done baking.Top with cilantro. Drizzle sauce onto tacos, or serve as a dipping sauce.

Notes

Serves 4 as a main dish, or 6-8 as an appetizer

The type of pork roast was not specified in the recipe, so I tried to make this with a pork loin roast. Perhaps I’m just a noob, but it didn’t cook right and I couldn’t shred it. Ultimate fail on my part. Perhaps it may help other beginner cooks to specify the type of pork roast for the future.

Any sujestioNs on a replacement for ketchup? This sounds and looks so yummy

    Sorry Leah – I’m not aware of any replacements for ketchup in this recipe.

I MADE THIS AS A PULLED PORK INSTEAD OF TACOS AND IT WAS ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. I FOLLOWED RECIPE EXACLY EXCEPT, ONCE I SHREDDED THE PORK I THREW IT IN THE POT WITH THE SAUCE AND MIXED IT UP AND LET IT COOK A LITTLE.

I THE ONE THING I WOULD LOVE TO FIND A WAY TO CHANGE IS THE SODIUM CONTENT. THOUGH THIS RECIPE IS VERY TASTY, WHEN EATING IT, IT COMES OFF RATHER SATLY. ANY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO REDUCE THE SODIUM, BUT STILL KEEP THE FLAVOR?

    Try using low sodium soy sauce next time- that should help!
