Slow Cooker Asian Pulled Pork Tacos

A few weeks ago, Ben and I used every available chair, fork, and floor cushion in our home to host 12 hungry friends for a big football game watch. While I can’t tell you much about the game (including its score), I can happily attest to what we served: Slow Cooker Asian Pulled Pork Tacos with a fresh, crunchy Peanut Broccoli Slaw.

Have you ever hosted a party for 12? This was one of my biggest bashes yet, and I knew I needed the right recipe to ensure that:

a) No one went hungry (my biggest party fear, aside from maybe running out of wine)

b) Those with dietary restrictions could still enjoy (a few of my friends are gluten free), and

c) The hostess (ahem, yours truly) could actually enjoy herself. My ideal recipe would be easy to prepare,  able to be made ahead, and hands off during the party itself.

Not only did these Asian Pork Tacos nail all of the above, but our guests absolutely devoured them. I’m keeping this recipe on file for anytime I am hosting a crowd or seeking to stock my freezer with yummy leftovers that I can thaw on demand.
