Cinco De Mayo

Cinco de Mayo, (Spanish: “Fifth of May”), also called Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, holiday celebrated in parts of Mexico and the United States in honour of a military victory in 1862 over the French forces of Napoleon III.

We are a melting pot of people and one way to share is in food :

Since we are in Lock-down and missing my favorite Food Truck to Celebrate :

Slow Cook Mexican Pulled Pork

  • 2 kg / 4 lb pork shoulder (pork butt) ,
  • 2 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 onion , chopped
  • 1 jalapeno , deseeded, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup juice from orange (2 oranges)


  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Combine the Rub ingredients then rub all over the pork.
  • Place the pork in a slow cooker (fat cap up), top with the onion, jalapeño, minced garlic (don’t worry about spreading it) and squeeze over the juice of the oranges.
  • Slow Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours. Pull and serve on flour tortilla with Queso asadero or queso quesadilla( Mexican cheese) that is a creamy, smooth, semi-soft white cheese that melts beautifully
