Juicy and flavorful slow cooked Kalua Pork Tacos drizzled with spicy cajun sauce!
TACOS. My love for tacos, it can’t really be explained. There just aren’t words. Because saying “I love tacos so much that I dream of them in my sleep and would like to devour them every day of my life in every variation imaginable” just doesn’t seem to cut it you know?
These tacos are some of my absolute favorite though. My husband agrees. One of the top 5 taco meals to happen in this household. The pork is slow cooked to tender perfection with an intense smoky, salty flavor I can’t resist. Pair that up with sweet and juicy mango slices, crunchy slaw, and a quick homemade spicy cajun sauce and I’m in heaven.
These were inspired by some tacos I tried at a bistro last year and yes I feel very suave saying bistro like some sort of uptown restaurant connoisseur. But bistro is actually in the name of the restaurant, promise. Annnnyway, I tried those tacos and fell in love. They had to happen at home. And happen they did. You must try them, you will go crazy for these beauties!
