Spicy Mexican Shredded Pork Tostadas (Tinga)
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. Finally, we used canned tomato sauce and chipotle chile powder to build a deep and complex sauce for our shredded pork tostada recipe.
