I’ve made various incarnations of low carb tacos for Husband Hanway and I over the years, but this recipe is definitely our new favourite!
The ‘taco’ shells here are made from antioxidant-rich radicchio leaves, one of the bitter leafies I love for its digestion soothing benefits. I also love that these leaves enable you to eat the taco with one hand, leaving the other free for a margarita, because, umm, balance!
The taco filling is made with a super easy paleo pulled pork recipe that can be made in a slow cooker or Instant Pot (we get our pasture raised pork from Butcher Box and the taste and the quality of the meat really is a game changer), an avocado lime crema that cuts through the richness of the pork, and toasted chopped pecans for an incredible crunch…
Paleo Pulled Pork With Avocado Lime Crema
(makes 4 generous servings)
1 x 3lb Pork Butt (we love Butcher Box)
1 cup bone broth (we love Bare Bones Broth)
4 tablespoons Espresso Cardamom Rub (recipe here)
3 tablespoons liquid smoke
I head radicchio, split into leaves (we love Boston Organics – use code: 6519bofdbh for a 10% discount)
3 ripe avocados
3 tablespoons EVOO
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
juice of 3 limes
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan Salt
3 tablespoons chopped and toasted pecans
1 tablespoon of lime zest
Make the marinade by mixing the rub and the liquid smoke. Cut the pork into 2-3 equal sized pieces and marinate for at least 30 minutes (the longer the better).
Pour the bone broth into the slow cooker or instant pot, and place the meat on top. Cook for 35 minutes in the Instant Pot, 4 hours on High in the Slow Cooker or 8 hours on Low in the Slow Cooker. Once the meat is cooked pull apart and then place back in the cooking juices for 5 minutes.
To make the crema simply blend together the avocados, cilantro, lime juice, EVOO and salt.
Assemble the tacos by carefully separating the radicchio leaves, then pile in the pork, a spoonful of crema and top with the toasted pecans and lime zest.
Eat and enjoy your healthy Taco Tuesday!
