Slow Cooker Hawaiian BBQ Wonton Tacos
- small wonton wrappers (can be found in the chilled Asian section near the produce) - 24-30
- pork roast - 1 pound
- liquid smoke - 4 teaspoons
- salt (sea salt if you have it) - 2 teaspoons
- broccoli slaw - 2 cups
- red onion, thinly sliced - 1/2
- cilantro, roughly chopped - 1/4 cup
- ketchup - 1/4 cup
- soy sauce - 1/4 cup
- pineapple juice (I used the juice from a can of crushed pineapple) - 1/3 cup
- minced garlic - 1 teaspoon
- brown sugar - 1 tablespoon
- ginger - 1/8 teaspoon
- Place pork roast in the slow cooker. Add liquid smoke, and sprinkle pork with salt. Cook on low 8 hours or on high 4 hours. 30 minutes before serving, Remove the pork from the slow cooker and shred with two forks.
- Preheat oven to 400. Spray a baking sheet generously with cooking spray. Lay wonton wrappers out on a flat surface. Put 3-4 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of shredded pork into the center of each wonton. Top with 1-2 tablespoons broccoli slaw and some red onion slices. Wet your finger tips with the water, then pinch two opposite corners of each wonton together so they stick together. Place wonton tacos on prepared baking sheet in a single layer, not touching. Spray tacos generously with cooking spray. Bake 10-15 minutes until wontons get crisp and edges begin to brown.
- While the tacos are baking, prepare the sauce. Combine all sauce ingredients in a medium sauce pan and whisk over medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and allow to thicken until tacos are done baking. Top with cilantro. Drizzle sauce onto tacos, or serve as a dipping sauce.
Just follow the instruction carefully and you will get the best output for this recipe. And when you get used to making it, it becomes easier and easier. The slow cooking portion is the easiest part though. Well, try it out and tell me what you think.
