Jamaican Jerk Pulled Pork Tostadas

by aimee @ shugarysweets on March 4, 2013

Jamaican Jerk Pulled Pork Tostadas are not only delicious, but easy to make thanks to your CrockPot! I also baked my corn tortillas to make this dish a little on the healthier side. Top your tostadas with Sharp LIGHT Cheddar Cabot Cheese for a creamy cheese topping that is half the fat!

I have been enjoying sharing a dinner recipe with all of you each week! I hope this is something YOU, my readers, are enjoying as well.

And, of course, I once again bring you a slow cooker meal. As I’ve said before, my slow cooker is used the majority of week nights in our house. And pork tenderloins are perfect to put in your slow cooker. This recipe can be ready in 6 hours…or keep it in your slow cooker for up to 10 hours. No harm done (as long as you don’t release the lid seal, that keeps the moisture in your slow cooker). Which is perfect for those of you who want to put it in first thing in the morning and leave it alone all day while at work!

When you are ready to eat, bake your tortillas (only 10 minutes in the oven) and assemble. I like to bake my tortillas, it makes them crunchy and healthy. Plus it’s less messy. But if you want, feel free to fry them in a skillet of oil. We also topped ours with Cabot Sharp Light Cheddar Cheese, it’s so smooth and melts very nicely for a light cheese!

Jamaican Jerk Pulled Pork Tostadas

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 8 hours

Yield: 10

Serving Size: 1 tostada

Ingredients

  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 2.5lb total)
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 2 cup beef broth
  • 3 Tbsp Jamaican Jerk seasoning
  • 10 corn tortillas
  • 8oz cheese, shredded (we used Cabot Sharp Light Cheddar)
  • lettuce, tomato, guacamole, sour cream, etc for topping

Instructions

  1. In a large slow cooker combine broth with orange juice and jerk seasoning. Add pork. Cover and cook on low for 6-10 hours (we usually do 8 hours). When ready, shred pork with two forks on a cutting board and return to juices.
  2. In a 425 degree oven, bake corn tortillas on a baking sheet for about 10 minutes, until crispy. Remove.
  3. To assemble, top tostada with pork (allow some of juice to strain off), shredded cheese and desired toppings. Eat immediately!

Looks like we both had pulled pork on the brain! I just posted a pulled pork sandwich last night. lol I love that yours are jerk flavored AND tostadas. Pork tenderloins cook so much faster, and that’s always a good thing!

As long as you keep the lid on, it retains the moisture and will result in a nice, tender pulled pork! I but my tenderloins at Costco so I always have some in my freezer!

Where can I find the jamaican jerk seasoning? This sounds very yummy!

McCormick has a Caribbean jerk seasoning that would work just fine. Some grocery stores carry other brands of Jamaican Jerk too.
