Take-out Tuesday, BBQ Pork Tacos with Pineapple Salad


You know the old saying, “Cook once, eat twice?”

This recipe is made with leftover BBQ pork,

Topped with unexpected toppings,

and garnished with a fresh lime crema






A perfect summer meal!





We have BBQ pulled pork quite often,

it’s easy to cook low and slow on the grill or in a Slow Cooker

And there are a gazillion things you can do with the leftover meat






These tacos have a topping of fresh pineapple,

cool cucumber, crisp snow peas and crunchy cashews





And a garnish of fresh lime crema





Start with a golden crisped flour tortilla

Top with warm pulled pork and your favorite BBQ sauce

Then add the toppings and a drizzle of crema





I served the toppings in a divided dish so everyone could pick what they wanted

the boys weren’t too interested in the cucumber,

but they loved the pineapple and cashews





Fold it up and dig in!






A wonderful combination of flavors and textures!


BBQ Pork Tacos with Pineapple Salad

  • Servings: varied
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

large flour tortillas

olive oil

cooked pulled pork* {I used meat from a pork butt} or pork tenderloin cut into small pieces

BBQ sauce** {any kind you like}

fresh pineapple chunks, or canned pineapple chunks or tidbits drained

snow peas


English cucumber {the long ones that are wrapped in plastic}

shredded lettuce, cabbage or slaw mix, optional

Lime Crema***


Heat oven to 350, wrap pulled pork in foil and reheat.

Heat enough olive oil in a large skillet to coat the bottom.  Add tortillas, one at a time and cook until golden, turn over and cook the other side.  Repeat with as many tortillas as needed.  Drain tortillas on paper towels.   Wrap in foil and keep warm.

Trim pointy ends of snow peas and cut in half.  Rinse and wrap in a clean kitchen towel.  Microwave for 1 minute.

Cut cucumber into slices and quarter them.

Arrange pea pods, cucumber pieces, pineapple, cashews and optional shredded lettuce or cabbage on a large platter or in a divided dish.  Set warm pork, BBQ sauce, Lime Crema, and tortillas next to toppings.  Diners can serve themselves and assemble their own taco creations.

***Lime Crema

1 cup sour cream

juice from 1 lime

1/2-1 tsp garlic salt

Mix sour cream with lime juice and add 1/2 tsp garlic salt.  Taste and add more garlic salt if desired

    Jenna, these look yummy and would be a perfect meal on a hot summer day. Thanks for sharing. I love to make pulled pork in my slow cooker. This will be a perfect way to stretch the meals instead of eating sandwiches for several days. Happy Tuesday!


  4. These look good, Jenna. I sometimes forget to do tacos with other meats and flavors. This is a good reminder. The pineapple is a nice touch, too!

    Pork and pineapple, sounds tropical and delicious…like your combination of ingredients. I laughed about the boys not being too crazy about cucumbers, typical. 😁
