Throwing a taco party just got a whole lot easier with this pork tacos recipe! This flavorful and tender pork roast serves a crowd, making 16 tacos – and can be doubled if needed! For shredded texture you can take the meat all the way to 190 degrees (this requires about 7 hours of roasting.) After you’ve made it, be sure to share this recipe with friends and family on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter!
To make 16 tacos, you’ll need to gather all of the ingredients below through the boneless pork. Whisk the Cabot Plain Greek Yogurt, garlic, fresh lime juice, ground cumin, chili powder, ground coriander, and coarse kosher salt in a small bowl.
Place pork in a 2-gallon extra-large re-sealable bag (or in a baking dish) and pour the yogurt mixture over it, turning to coat. Seal the bag (or cover the baking dish with plastic wrap) and refrigerate 24 hours.
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Prepare your baking sheet and cook the pork as directed in the instructions below. While pork is resting after coming out of the oven, make slaw by whisking olive oil, 2 tablespoons lime juice, and ¼ teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Add cabbage, cilantro, and scallions, and toss to coat. Wrap two stacks of 8 tortillas in foil and set in the oven to warm.

This marinade is delicious for pork. Tender and flavorful, it will make tacos for tonight's dinner and will freeze the rest. Definitely will cook this again!
this looks like a great recipe, but the times given are all wrong. 28 hours for cooking? Can someone check this out and correct it?
*We’re taking into account the 24 hours of marinating the pork as well as 7 hours in the oven.
