I’ve shared my love for all things slow cooker, and this Slow Cooker Cuban Pork does not disappoint.

Ok, does not disappoint is an understatement. This pork is tender and tasty and full of flavor. It’s also really easy to put together. I think it took me between 5 and 10 minutes to get it all together and start it cooking.overhead picture of Slow Cooker Cuban Pork on a white plate

Another great thing about this slow cooker Cuban pork is that is can be the base for a lot of other recipes (one of which I’ll post tomorrow). I chose to serve it as a filling for soft tacos. I topped the pork with fresh salsa, some guacamole, and cheese. I’m not sure how authentic the tacos were, but they tasted so good, and that’s what counts.
