Hawaiian BBQ Pork Wonton Tacos

 

Not sure why I’ve been holding out on this goodness for so long. I made these Hawaiian bbq pork wonton tacos before I even went back east last month. My husband raved and raved about them, but I’ve been saving them. For a special occasion or something? Not sure. But enough is enough. Something this tasty needs to be shared with the world.

The best part is that your crock pot will do most of the work for you in this recipe. Some of my favorite dishes are the ones that start out in a slow cooker, like these Cream Cheese Chicken Taquitos. So much less work, so much good flavor, it’s just a win all around. The sauce on these tacos is the real kicker here. A little sweet, a little tangy, and a whole lot of yum! I may or may not have made a large batch of this sauce just for pouring on everything imaginable after the tacos were finished off. Oops. (Or not….)

Recipe type: Main Dish/Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4-8
Ingredients
  • 24-30 small wonton wrappers (can be found in the chilled Asian section near the produce)
  • 1 pound pork roast
  • 4 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 2 teaspoons salt (sea salt if you have it)
  • 2 cups broccoli slaw
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup cilantro, roughly chopped
sauce
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ⅓ cup pineapple juice (I used the juice from a can of crushed pineapple)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon ginger
Instructions
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
Notes
*serves 4 as a main dish, or 6-8 as an appetizer

    I cannot wait to try these. They are going on the menu for next week. I love your website. I recently discovered it and have already tried several of your recipes with great success. Have you ever considered linking up with Ziplist/Recipe Box? I love that feature because it allows me to keep the recipes on my phone for easy access and allows me to quickly make my grocery lists with the ingredients I need for the recipes I have saved. I will love your website no matter what, but just wanted to throw that out there. Thanks!

    I’m vegetarian and gluten free. I quit eating land-based meats last year. I used to make awesome wontons years ago, with shrimp & pork filling, both for wonton soup and deep fried. These Hawaiian BBQ Pork Wonton Tacos look great, so yummy. Nice. :)

      Heidi! Thanks so much for catching that! Good eye ;) I’ve updated the recipe – it’s just 1/2 of a red onion thinly sliced :)

    I made these last night for dinner and they were awesome! I drizzled some Yum-Yum sauce over them before serving and it gave them a sweet and sour thing, my boyfriend couldn’t stop eating them. Tonight I will use the leftover pork and sauce in quesadillas. Thanks for the great recipe!

      Ooh, I LOVE yum yum sauce – you must be a sushi lover! That’s a brilliant idea, I’m gonna have to try it next time for sure!
