Charlotte Hancey is back in the kitchen this morning with a tasty Honey Chipotle Pork Rib Taco recipe. These Honey Chipotle Pork Rib Tacos are inspired by Charlotte’s recent Texas road trip. She had the best tacos ever at a restaurant called Liberty Taco in Downtown Houston. Once she had their tacos, she knew she needed to recreate them!
Honey-Chipotle Pork Rib Tacos
-3-4 lbs Boneless Country-Style Pork Ribs
-1/2 cup Water
-1 1/2 teaspoons salt
-1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
-18 oz Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Chipotle BBQ Sauce
For the Serrano Ranch Slaw:
-1/2 cup mayonnaise (light is ok)
-1 tablespoon lime juice
-1 tablespoon vinegar (white or red wine)
-1 dry ranch dressing packet (1 oz)
-1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
-2-3 serrano peppers, seeded and finely diced
-14 oz coleslaw mix
-Flour or corn tortillas, warmed
-Fresh cilantro, chopped
-Queso fresco, crumbled
-Extra BBQ sauce
1.Place ribs in a slow cooker, add water, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle with half of the bottle of BBQ sauce. Toss with a fork or tongs to coat. Cook on low for 5 hours or high for 3 hours.
2.Once ribs are “fall apart” tender, shred with a fork in the slow cooker. (Remove any large fatty pieces.) Keep warm until ready to serve.
3.To make slaw, add mayonnaise, lime juice, vinegar, ranch seasoning, and garlic salt to a medium-sized bowl. Whisk to combine well. Add serrano peppers and slaw mix then toss to coat.
4.To assemble tacos, place rib meat and slaw inside a warm tortilla. Garnish with pickled jalapenos, cilantro, queso fresco, and extra BBQ sauce.
