  • Author: Lindsay Cotter
  • Total Time: 2 hours 40 minutes up to 5 hours
  • Yield: 6-9 tacos depending on size 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


Made with a mojo marinade, these easy Crockpot Pork Tacos are bursting with herbaceous, citrus flavor in every juicy bite! Serve in gluten-free tortillas and add with all your favorite toppings


Units Scale


  • 1/3 cup torn cilantro or 2 Tablespoons chopped
  • 1/4 cup light olive oil
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves or 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Crock Pot Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds pork loin (see notes for substitutes)
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup chopped white onion or 1 small onion

For Serving + Toppings:

  • Gluten-free corn tortillas or tortillas of choice
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • Sliced avocado
  • 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • Optional crumbled cheese (omit if dairy free)
  • Garnish – cilantro



Crock Pot:


Substitutes – Use 2 pounds boneless pork shoulder (trim the extra fat) in place of pork loin. Because pork shoulder contains more fat, it may take slightly longer to cook depending on the cut. 

Cooking Tips – The original recipe feeds a family of 4 easily with few to no leftovers. The recipe easily doubles for more servings, if desired. If cooking on HIGH, after shredding the pork allow it to marinate on WARM for at least 20 minutes to enhance the flavor before serving. 

Storage Tips –  Freeze the shredded pork in an airtight container or ziploc bag for up to 3 months.
