Jamaican Jerk Pulled Pork Tostadas

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

  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 2 cup beef broth

  • 10 corn tortillas
  • 8oz cheese, shredded (we used Cabot Sharp Light Cheddar)

  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!

    YES we enjoy the dinner recipes! It gives some of us a break from too much sugar! Love the crock pot recipes, makes it easy for me having 4 kids!

    Isn’t the crock pot wonderful! You just can’t get that tender fall apart meat any other way. I also like the Jamaican twist you gave to tostadas. That’s a delicious dinner.

    Those carnitas look fantastic. I would have NEVER though of making it with oranges! Great idea.

    We love Mexican food at our house. I know these would be a hit. They look so good!

    I love it! And I love that you are sharing week night dinners with us. You have me excited, I actually have pork in my crockpot as we speak. I wish I saw your recipe before I made mine! You have to love the Crockpot!

      Glad to hear you enjoy the dinner recipes! I hope your pork dinner turns out well. Although pork and slow cookers are made for eachother!

    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!

    Ahh…how I miss my slow cooker. This looks soo good!

  18. posted Mar 5, 2013 at 5:07 pm

    Stop it… I’m drooling here. This sounds great.. I never give my crock pot enough of a workout during the week. Need to dust it off and let it cook for me!

      Mine is quite tired from the workout it gets each week!!

  19. posted Mar 5, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    Amazing flavors, Aimee! We love pulled pork and I’m intrigued by using a tenderloin, I usually use a pork butt. This sounds so good!

    • posted Mar 6, 2013 at 7:33 am

      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!

  20. posted Mar 5, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    I love the flavors here, Aimee!! Jerk chicken is one of our favorite way of enjoying tostadas — since we do not eat much pork :)

  21. posted Mar 5, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    What time is dinner? Those look awesome! Such a great idea to bake the tortillas for healthier tostadas…I’m totally doing that next time!!! Keep the awesome dinners coming!!!

    • posted Mar 6, 2013 at 7:35 am

      Consider yourself invited :) I like to bake them because who wants to clean up an oil mess?? Especially if baking them results in nice crispy tostadas!!

  22. posted Mar 6, 2013 at 12:11 am

    I’ve been drooling over these since I saw them on Facebook! I’m definitely adding these to my slow cooker menu – mine has been getting a workout lately and I love it. :-)

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

    • posted Mar 21, 2013 at 12:58 pm

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

    If you half the recipe for smaller servings, do you cut the cooking time in half too?

    Hi, I was wanting to make this recipe for dinner it looks super yummy. I went to the grocery store and I can’t find the Jamaican jerk seasoning. Where can I find it? Thanks!

    How many calories are in this recipe per serving?

      I’m not sure. I don’t use a calorie counter on the blog. But I bet there are some online that you could plug the recipe into to give you the answer. ENJOY!
