If you know me, you know that “the other white meat” and I aren’t the best of friends… usually I don’t eat pork.  I have no idea why, I’m just weird 😛  But, hubby likes it and I’ve been trying to make an effort lately to break out of the standard beef and chicken routine.

So I came upon this little gem on Pinterest (of course lol)… and I just had to try it!!  These pork tacos are sweet and saucy with an attitude… absolutely delicious!  Wanna hear the BEST part?  And no, it’s not that tantalizing sauce… it’s that the crockpot does most of the work for you! 😀  Who doesn’t love that!  There is a downside… if you’re home all day while that bbq pork is cooking… well, you may want to eat everything in the house, because it’ll smell amazing and make you incredibly hungry!

Your pork will cook in your slow cooker for 8 hours on low, or 4 hours on high.  About 30 minutes before you want to eat, shred your pork.  It will seriously just fall apart, no effort required 🙂

I added a little of my sauce to the shredded bbq pork, so it had tons of flavor.  While it’s resting, go ahead and preheat your oven and gather your ingredients for the tacos.  Now these toppings are up to you, but I went with the broccoli slaw, diced red onion and fresh cilantro!

To assemble the tacos, lay out your wonton wrappers on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and spoon a little of the pork filling in the center.  I did about 1-2 Tbsp of the filling.  Now add your toppings on top of the filling.

If you’ve worked with wonton wrappers before, you know that you need some water to help them stick together.  They can also be a bit finicky.  Have a small bowl or glass with some water nearby, wet your fingers, and pinch two opposite sides of the wrappers together (to make a “taco”).  Your wet fingers should seal the wonton.

As you can see from the picture above, mine didn’t exactly stick together lol.  So I improvised and just sort of folded them over in a makeshift wrap.  It worked, just didn’t look as pretty lol.

Tip:  If you don’t want to fuss with making the tacos, you can also spray a muffin pan with cooking spray and push the wonton wrappers down into the muffin cups to create a bowl shape.  Fill with toppings just like you would for the taco shapes, and bake at 400 for about 15 minutes or so.

Okay, back to the tacos… spray the tacos with cooking spray and bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes, until they are golden brown.  Be careful though, wontons can burn pretty quickly, so keep an eye on them!

Simmer your sauce while the tacos are baking and when it’s time to serve, drizzle some of that amazing sauce over the tops of the tacos or serve it alongside for dipping.  Orrrrrrr be like me, and do both!  Lol.

If you’d rather not mess with wontons at all, this pork and sauce would be fantastic on a bun as a pulled pork sandwich!  Or just eat it by itself, it’s that good.

  1. I’m glad you are giving pork a chance… and this recipe sounds easy and good.

  2. oh my gosh! I have some wonton wrappers in my fridge that are leftover from when I made Crab Rangoon and I’d LOVE to use them to make these!! I’ve been dying for an idea and you’ve just handed it right over to me… these look amazing! Thank you so much for sharing and for bringing these to Fiesta Fridayyy! PS- Loveeee that this is a crockpot recipe too, I’m always on the hunt for those!

    • Me too, I hated leaving out such a big ingredient for dinners at out house. Thank you!!! I think the next time I make them, I’ll try the wonton cupcakes, those would be much easier to put together 🙂 If you try them, I hope you love them!

  5. Whoa. Just Whoa. These are mouthwatering! I love love love new crockpot recipes- I’m definitely going to have to try these! Although I don’t have wonton wrappers, I do have some homemade flour tortillas in my freezer, and I can’t wait to try your pork recipe and oooh that sauce.

  12. These look so yummy! And I do love when the crockpot does all the work!

  13. We’re in the same boat re: pork. That’s hubby’s choice of protein, not so with me. Needless to say, I’m uncertain what to do with the big chunk of pork he bought yesterday. He said just throw it in the oven! I don’t think so. I think I’ll be making pork tacos, instead, Hawaiian style

  21. These look and sound amazing! I love pork tacos and love love love my crock pot, these are going on my to-make-soon-for-dinner list 🙂 Visiting from Foodie Fridays.

  22. Hi Amanda,
    This post was already linked to FF42. I’m sure it’s just an oversight on your part. I don’t normally delete any link in a situation like this, but we’re having a little technical problem and I have to redo all the links. So I’m going to leave this one out. Your other links will be included, however. Thanks. 🙂

  23. Oh my lordy…. I think I need to make this ASAP. Ugh, and its with the beloved crockpot! Seriously… will be making this very soon. They look and sound delicious and your pictures are amazing! Thanks so much for bringing these to the party =)

    • Thank you so much!! We’re actually making them again this week 🙂 Crockpot recipes are definitely some of my favorites! I’d love to hear how you like them after you make them 🙂

  24. These look so yummy. I love new recipes to use up wonton wrappers.
    Thanks,
    Bev

  25. Wait a minute…. Roast pork… AND a taco-like meal!?! must try this one!

  26. Can these be served cold ? or room temperature?

  27. So delicious and simple to make!!

  28. Going to make these tonight, quick question regarding baking the broccoli slaw…I feel like I’ve always had it raw, it is good cooked on there? Is it still crispy?

    • Hi Danielle 🙂 I hope you love them! It still has a little snap to it, as it’s not baked very long. If you prefer it really crunchy, you can leave it off while the wonton tacos are baking, then add it to the top of the cooked tacos before eating 🙂
