The great taste of tacos is something that many people enjoy. They love the flavors and the way you can customize them to please just about everyone in your family. When you are looking for a great way to make tacos, but don’t want to put in too much work, you will want to consider our Slow Cooker Shredded Pork Tacos.
Sure, there’s four hours of cooking time – eight if you cook it on low instead of high – but don’t worry – all the work and heavy lifting will be done for you by your slow cooker.
If you’re looking for an easy way to make dinner with minimal effort, a slow cooker is your best friend. Here are three reasons why using a slow cooker is a great idea for busy weeknights.
One of the best things about slow cookers is that they do all the work for you. Just set it and forget it – no need to worry about stirring or checking on the food. This is especially helpful when you’re trying to get dinner ready while also dealing with kids or after a long day at work.
Another plus of slow cookers is that they’re very versatile. You can use them to make a variety of dishes, from stews and soups to pasta and even desserts. And because they cook slowly over a long period of time, the flavors have time to really meld together, resulting in a tastier meal.
That’s why these slow-cooker shredded pork tacos are so awesome. You just need 15 minutes of actual prep time!

Meal Prepping? Slow Cookers Are Your Friend!
Slow cookers make meal prep easy too. You can just throw everything in the pot and let it cook while you do other things. And, cleanup is a breeze since you only have one pot to wash.
Here are some tips for making your slow cooker meals even easier:
-Plan ahead and make enough for leftovers. Then you can just reheat your meal instead of starting from scratch the next day.
-Use frozen vegetables. They cook just as well as fresh veggies and they save you time chopping.
-Make extra sauce or gravy and freeze it in individual portions. That way you always have some on hand to jazz up your leftovers.
