Redneck Tacos

Red Neck Tacos are a far cry from the traditional Tacos that you and your family are used to having, made with tender delicious flavorful Pulled Pork doused in the finest barbecue sauce, resting on a delicious corn cake, topped with homemade crunchy coleslaw, fresh ripe tomatoes, and cheese.

Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint, Located at 7238 Nolensville Road, Nolensville, TN was featured on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives a while back. I have to say this caught my eye immediately, I told my husband Ben that I was going to these delicious looking Red Neck Tacos.

 

Red Neck Tacos are a far cry from the traditional Taco you and your family may be used to having made with tender delicious Pulled Pork doused in the finest barbecue sauce resting on a delicious corn cake, topped with homemade crunchy coleslaw, fresh ripe tomatoes, and cheese.It seems like it took me forever and a day to make the recipe for Redneck Tacos, but I am so glad I did now. They were so flavorful and delicious it was ridiculous. I am telling you after making these Tacos and eating them for lunch today, I am in love

I bet you are suddenly asking “What is a Redneck Taco???” Well, I am sure going to tell you. “Pork, Coleslaw, BBQ sauce and all served on a corn cake”, You can either start from scratch with all home ingredients or this recipe is fantastic for leftover pulled pork and coleslaw – I happened to get lucky by having leftover pulled pork from the other night.

Click the links provided if you would like to make your own Homemade BBQ Sauce and coleslaw. I am just giving the simplified recipe to make things a bit easier at dinner time.

You can usually find some pretty tasty premade Pulled pork at many of the local markets here in the Southern States. I also love Publix’s Sweet Coleslaw if I am in a big hurry and pressed for time. The rest is so easy to do it’s ridiculous.
