Pulled Pork Tostadas
Ingredients for Pork:
Pork Loin – 2 pounds
1 1/2 cups coconut milk, unsweetened
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 frontera garlic, lime & chipotle packet or 1 cup of beef broth
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon coffee, ground
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt
Directions for Pork:
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Make sure your meat is dry, you can take a paper towel and tap dry and set aside.
In a small mixing bowl combine all your dry ingredients then add the seasoning mix to all the sides of your meat, make sure you press the seasoning into the meat to make sure it sticks and set aside.
In a deep pot add your coconut oil and heat to medium/high. Once hot add your meat and sear on all sides. Once the meat is seared remove it from the pot and set aside.
In the same pot you braised your meat add the frontera packet and coconut milk. Make sure to whisk everything together well, get those bits that are stuck to the pot from the meat. Add the meat back to the pot and cover then into the preheated oven.
If you dont have a pot that you can transferred from the stove top to the oven you can just use a casserole dish. Just add the frontera sauce, coconut milk and pork loin. You could also use tin foil to cover the dish.
Bake for 4/5 hours. Pull out the meat to a dish or cutting board. Shred the meat by using two forks. Once the meat is all shredded add it
back to the pot with the gravy and stir, combing all the ingredients. Cover to keep warm until you're ready to serve.
When your meat is almost ready you can start on your tostadas, they take about 10/15 minutes to cook.
Ingredients for Tostadas:
2 tablespoons coconut flour
4 tablespoons flaxseed meal, ground
2 tablespoons almond flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup water
Directions for Tostadas:
Whisk together all the ingredients in a medium size bowl.
Line a baking pan with parchment paper and brush with a very little olive oil.
Carefully spoon (using a teaspoon) the batter out into your hand and roll it like a meatball.
Add the ball to the parchment paper and press down lightly until you have a thin round layer about 3" round. Repeat until all the batter is used.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10/15 mins or until golden brown.
***You can pair your tostadas with just about anything, I did a purple shredded cabbage salad. I added mayo, hot sauce, mustard seeds, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. The cheese I used was a garlic cilantro white cheddar from Trader Joes***
