Hawaiian Pork Soft Tacos

This is a fabulous twist on a traditional taco. which will definitely leave everyone wanting more. The recipe does call for pork but I actually used a mince from Coles that was a blend of 70% pork and 30% beef and it was delicious. Just be sure to cook off as much of the juice as possible otherwise it will make the soft taco sloppy to eat. Enjoy!
