We originally published this pork taco filling recipe during a heat wave that hit New York one summer. Rather than turn on the oven, we touted the virtues of using a slow cooker on a hot day. Normally thought of during the colder months, the slow cooker is actually a great way to cook when it’s too steamy to turn on the stove, and you’d rather be outside swimming or running through the sprinklers than tending a pot for dinner. What’s more, this taco filling will serve the crowd of neighbors who come in dripping wet from the pool party.
