Trim excess fat off roast. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and ginger; rub generously over roast. Place in slow cooker with garlic, onion and orange juice. Cook on low heat for 8 hours (or high for four to six hours.) Remove pork to large bowl and shred with forks. Strain pork liquid from slow cooker and pour over pulled pork to moisten. Squeeze lime juice on top and mix well. Divide into 12 servings. In small bowl, mix together sour cream, cumin and scallions.

For each serving, cover corn tortilla with two tablespoons cheese; microwave for 20 seconds. Top with pulled pork, two teaspoons of sour cream mix, 1½ tablespoons shredded cabbage and one tablespoon of salsa. Fold and serve immediately.
