This recipe is now in my keeper file. We added a very small pinch of Cumino at the point of boiling. It adds a definite zip to the recipe. Since we prefer eat this type of meal in soft tortillas we reduced the diced tomatoes by half and drained the juice. If saturated fat is a concern I recommend refrigerating for one night and skimming off the fat....
This was a great flavour. I added a couple of things though, in my opinion, enhanced the flavour even more so. Added 3 cloves garlic and 1 half of a lime( rind and all). Let it all cook together. the lime added such an amazing flavour to the dish, I couldnt imagine it without it. Thanks for the recipe. Definetely a keeper!
I took the original posters lead and actually made this using verde salsa - one medium and one hot. I also reduced the cans of tomatoes and chili to one but kept the juice. A bit of cumino as it all came to a boil in the final phase. All I can say is, "Wow!!" Even better than what I've had in a local restaurant. Easy cleanup too. Thanks for the hints and the recipe.
This was pretty good although my family decided that it needed more kick. I added some cayenne and salt at the end of cooking and will use hot salsa next time. I also refuse to cook anything in a plastic bag -- that cannot be healthy. I cooked everything in a crockpot. I would probably make it again with modifications.
My guests said this dish was delicious. I had eight people for dinner so made the recipe to serve 8. It would have served 12-16 depending on appetites. I don't have a crock pot so I used my electric roaster...I put everything in the cooking bag sat the whole thing into the roaster and surrounded it with water. Cooked at between 225 and 250 degrees. It came out moist fork tender and delicious. I let guests spoon it up into whole wheat tortillas and served with a salad. Quick easy delicious. Just what we needed on a very busy day of taking guests sightseeing. When we returned home all I needed to do was make the salad.
This recipe is incredible. I love using the slow cooker, because it is so easy and this recipe is no different. I have used this multiple times and it will be a staple in my menu. It is the best for using a shoulder roast. Since there are just two of us, I freeze some of the pork for easy future meals. Thanks for this awesome recipe. I have given it to many family and friends. I highly recommend it!! Thanks.
UPDATE: Had leftovers today and they were very yummy! I was worried that the meat would dry out but it didn't. My bf had leftovers (eaten spooned over tortilla chips - with all the fixins) and also enjoyed it (and he HATES leftovers - lol). Very good! I was skeptical at first... my roast when taken out of the slow cooker had a lot of fat on it (which grosses me out!). After I shredded the meat it was perfect! I followed the directions to a T except for halving the recipe for my bf and I (I have lots of leftovers for tomorrow and the weekend even after me having two servings and my bf having 4!!!). Served with soft corn tortillas shredded lettuce and cheddar cheese chopped tomatoes fresh lime and sour cream. Next time I'll prepare with green salsa or either top each helping with some. This goes particularly well with Spanish rice. Thanks for sharing such an easy recipe!
