For most of my life, I only knew tacos as tortillas filled with ground beef, cheese, lettuce and sour cream. But now tacos represent endless meal opportunities, tortillas just waiting to be filled with: shrimp (in our favorite Shrimp Tacos), slow cooker pulled chicken, roasted vegetables, Pork Carnitas, Carne Asada and, now, pork belly! And it’s not just about the base filling, but getting creative with toppings.

The toppings for these pork belly tacos are a fusion of Mexican and Asian inspired flavors: cabbage, cilantro, jalapeño, green onion and a light drizzle of spicy-salty-tangy mayonnaise.

Make these for a couple or a crowd, they’re simple to assemble and are sure to leave everyone rubbing their bellies and sighing with satisfaction!

    Left off prior review… The only thing I did different is use smoked salt. Gave it a nice hint of smoky flavor.
