Spicy Mexican Shredded Pork Tostadas (Tinga) With Homemade Chorizo
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted our pork tostadas recipe to have the crisp texture and smoky tomato flavor characteristic of traditional Mexican shredded pork. To get smoky, fork-tender pork on the stovetop, we simmered cubed Boston butt in water flavored with garlic, onion, and thyme, then sautéed the drained meat in a hot frying pan to make it crisp. Homemade chorizo, easily prepared by grinding pork with spices and vinegar in a food processor, added a layer of complexity to our pork tostada recipe.
