Is there any better kitchen appliance other than the Slow Cooker?? I know, I know the Instant Pot is all the rage, but I grew up on slow cooker meals and can’t seem to bring myself to cheat on my beloved Crockpot.

I started using in college to make chili, but these days my handy slow cooker is pulling off killer Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Tacos and the best Paleo Slow Cooker Meatballs you will ever eat!

Slow cooker pulled pork tacos are not only easy (hello 5 ingredient recipe), throw together and forget about it, but damn delicious. Now my go-to when entertaining a large group of peeps, pulled pork tacos are always in demand by friends and family.
