Shredded Pork Medley
This week I shared with you a Salpicón de Mariscos (Seafood Medley) and I promised to share a Salpcón de Cerdo (Pork Medley) with you, so here it is! 😊
Salpcón de Cerdo is an
excellent appetizer served on top of corn tortillas but it is also delicious as a meal served with rice.
For my Salpicón de Cerdo, I mixed and embellished it with avocados, red onions, lettuce, sweet tomatoes, cilantro, lime, pickled jalapeños, green pickled chiles and yummy queso fresco. And of course, a few spices!
Assemble on broil corn tortillas….
What’s also terrific about this dish, is it’s very easy to make and great for parties because it can be made ahead of time and in large quantities.
So my foodie friends, here’s to Salpicón de Cerdo!

Note: If you would like to make this recipe ahead of time, mix pork with just the onion and vinaigrette and refrigerate. Hold off on the lettuce and cilantro until you are ready to have the Salpicón de Cerdo.
|Cut pork into 3 inch cubes. You can use a pressure cooker to cook the pork, which will decrease the cooking time. Or, you can boil in a large pot with enough water to cover. Add salt, pepper, garlic and bay leaf. If cooking in a pot, cook for at least an hour or maybe longer. Cook until pork is tender. Drain pork in a colander. Let cool and shred with two forks or use fingers to shred pork.|
|Slice the red onion into half moons. Slice lettuce, chop 2 tomatoes and slice 3. Chop cilantro. Cut avocado into wedges and add juice of one lime to the wedges to prevent discoloration.|
|In a small bowl whisk together olive oil, vinegar, juice of the other lime and if you're using juice of an orange, add now. Add salt and pepper to taste.|
In a large bowl add pork, lettuce, onion and cilantro. Toss together and add vinaigrette. Let sit for a few minutes. Taste and see if additional salt or pepper is needed.
|Broil corn tortillas for a few minutes until they crisp up a little. Crumble queso fresco. Top tortillas with pork mixture and top with tomatoes, avocados, green chiles, jalapeños and queso fresco. Enjoy!|
