Yesterday, we got an unexpected snow day! Monday was so nice and felt like spring and then Tuesday rolled around and it did a 180. They forecasted 8-11 inches so I think that scared a lot of officials and schools because all the closings started to happen. Woke up in the morning and the government was closed so that was a nice :) I already had MLK day off on Monday and yesterday was just extending the long weekend. They said that today’s wind chill is supposed to be -17 degrees. Oh my gosh, I don’t even want to step foot out of my house. I think I’d literally freeze :) not quite sure how the midwest deals with this kind of cold every winter!

A month or so ago, I had a huge hankering for Korean tacos. There’s this food truck in DC that Jason and I LOVE and try to go to whenever we’re at work and the food truck is around our offices. Well, when I had the craving, it was the weekend and we weren’t anywhere near the city so I had to remedy the situation by creating Korean tacos at home. I found this recipe in the cookbook, 365 Slow Cooker Suppers by Stephanie O’Dea. My friend at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt sent me her book and I couldn’t be more happy with it. Slow cooker recipes are my ultimate favorite and I know they’re your favorite too!

I loved the tenderness of the pork and the flavor! This pork and the sauce that accompanied it is bold, sweet, and tangy. Jason and I probably ate three tacos each and the leftovers were even better!

Hi Julie,...was wondering if chicken could be substituted for the pork. I have a son who has gout and pork is one of the things that sets off an "attack".

Yes, definitely! I would recommend chicken thighs instead of breasts!

I love this!!! I used beef and made it in an Instant Pot in an hour. The Cole slaw works so well. Thanks for the recipe!

This looks delicious. My family does not eat pork. What type of beef would you suggest for this? Thanks so much!

My daughter doesn't eat pork either, and I substitute chicken thighs. They come out tender and flavorful!
