Shredded Pork Tacos with Beet Lettuce Slaw

When I was last home my wonderful parents made me an amazing treat; pork butt. Now that may sound weird, but pork butt is what makes that delicious shredded pork everyone loves.  There are also so many ways you can make it; bbq, asain, or mexican.  I choose the last method for this particular recipe.  This recipe is great with the crunchy taco shell and sweet tangy beet slaw.  I also use the cool element of cottage cheese to really tie the dish together.


  • crunch (or soft) taco shells
  • cottage cheese (this is optional but highly suggested)
  • romaine lettuce
  • beets (from a can)
  • white vinegar
  • green diced chiles
  • shredded pork (sorry, recipe not provided yet)

How to:

  1. So I highly recommend if you can get your hands on shredded pork, use that but if not, shredded chicken will be great too!
  2. Once you have your shredded meat, mix in diced green chilies, the kind that come in the can are the easiest to use.
  3. Then begin shredding up your lettuce, its best to have it nice and thin.
  4. After draining the juice, slice them up thin as well.  In a bowl mix the beets with the lettuce, season withe salt and pepper, and a few splashes of white vinegar.
  5. After that just assemble your fillings into the tacos and enjoy!  Its a new taco on a taco night classic!
