Place into slow cooker:

  • 1/2 seeded jalapeno, chopped

  • ¼ tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp pink salt, or sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder (or chipotle chili powder)
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper  

Place roast into slow cooker. Sprinkle with seasonings. Pour over salsa, onion, garlic and jalapenos. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or until no longer pink and shreds easily.
Remove from liquid and shred. 

  • 1 cup finely cubed fresh pineapple
  • pinch sea salt or pink salt
  • 1/4 red onion, diced 
  • 1 small lime juiced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or grated
  • handfull cilantro, chopped
  • 1 roma tomato, diced (optional)

Combine pineapple, red onion, lime juice, and pinch of sea salt; mix well. Set aside.
Shred cabbage and set to the side. 

8 corn tortillas, warmed
Greek yogurt or sour cream
Shredded cabbage (optional)
Serve with black beans and brown rice, or "refried" beans

Top each tortilla evenly with pork, salsa, greek yogurt, cabbage and fresh diced avocado.

This will make a lot of pulled pork. Freeze half to use in a meal later on in the week.
