A Chef's Twist on the Beloved Mexican Meal
Tacos may not be the first food that comes to mind when you think "dinner party menu," but when the recipe comes from a James Beard Award–winning chef who promises it's easy—"redeeming," even—you may be inclined to take a closer look. These beer-braised pork tacos from Hugh Acheson's new The Chef and the Slow Cooker are actually ideal company fare: They're rich and flavorful (thanks to a good amount of fat and a can of beer), customizable and can be made well in advance. Serve them with warm tortillas, minced onion, crumbled Cotija cheese, lime wedges, salsa verde and any other toppings that strike your inner chef's fancy.
