Pork is one of my favorite things to make in the Sun Oven. One roast usually yields enough meat for multiple meals. I keep the seasoning simple so the shredded meat can be used for pasta sauces, bbq sandwiches, or tacos.

Set Sun Oven out to preheat.

Rub the meat with salt and pepper. Place the pieces in a large pot. Add the bay leaf. Cover and transfer to the Sun Oven. Cook until the meat is fork tender. 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Transfer meat to a cutting board and shred. Put the shredded meat in a pot with a some of the cooking liquid; keep warm. Heat the tortillas according to the instructions on the package. Assemble the tacos with meat, salsa, guacamole, and cabbage or use your favorite toppings.
