Pulled Pork Tacos in the wild – ‘Cause why not?

Published: 15.09.18

Tacos are tasty. I'm sure you could find over 1000 different taco recipes if you travel to Mexico, but mine is perfected for making outdoors in the wild. You only need a pot, a pan and a cutting board, and it's very easy to clean up afterwards without making too much of a mess. Last but not least; it's super tasty! This is my go-to recipe for wilderness tacos:

Time: 1 hour. Check out my video in the bottom of the article to see how I did it. Do you want to come on one of my trips, attend a cooking class or get a meal served to you in the Norwegian wilderness? Click here.

Ingredients for 2 people:

1 box of Pulled Pork (with marinade)

8 small tortillas

2 avocados

1 red pepper

1 onion

1 chili pepper

8 small cherry tomatoes

4 tomatoes

Jalapenos to taste

2 bay leaves

1 bag of shredded cheese

Step-by-step instructions:

  • Cut the onion into 4 pieces, separating each layer by hand. Halve the cherry tomatoes, and slice the chili pepper lengthwise. Remove the seeds to lower the spice level if need be. Add everything to the pot, included 2 bay leaves.
  • Add the pulled pork along with the marinade. This will give the pork a nice and juicy taste. Pour enough water in to cover the pork.
  • Put the pot on the stove or over the fire and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Watch closely to avoid the pork from getting burnt in the bottom of the pot. Turn the pork and cook the other side for another 20 minutes.
  • While waiting for the meat you can make the salsa. Chop the tomatoes into small cubes, separating the outer and inner parts. Add jalapenos to taste.
  • Slice the pepper into thin slices and chop the avocado.
  • After 40 minutes of cooking you should be able to easily pull the pork apart with a fork. Check into the middle to ensure it's all done.
  • Heat the tortillas in the pan
  • Put a tortilla on a plate, add the meat, some pepper, avocado and salsa.

Bon Appetite!
