This recipe came about due to two things.
First, a friend mentioned having Korean tacos and how good they were. I’d never tried them, but it sounded great!
Second, I wanted a homemade alternative to this Korean BBQ Mix. We love this mix, but it’s nice to be able to make something from scratch too.
I did a little research and then altered the recipe for Slow Cooker Honey Hoisin Chicken to come up with this version of Korean BBQ Tacos. I make no claim that these are authentic. But I do know they are good! Really good.
I used pork loin instead of beef or chicken, but any of those meats will work.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Slow Cooker Korean BBQ Tacos
- 3 lbs. boneless pork loin
- 8 oz hoisin sauce
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2/3 cup honey
- 1/4 tsp. ginger
- 2 Tbs. lemon OR lime juice
- slaw mix or shredded cabbage to top tacos
- corn tortillas
Place pork in slow cooker.
Stir hoisin sauce, soy sauce, honey, ginger and lemon juice together.
Pour over pork.
Cook on high 5-6 hours or low 7-8 hours.
Shred meat with a fork.
Serve in taco shells topped with slaw. Or serve over rice.
Any extra meat can be frozen for another time.
We also had the Korean BBQ meat served over rice. We topped it with the slaw and a little diced red pepper, like haystacks. You can also add other raw vegetables, like broccoli, carrots, onion etc.
