Great for burritos or tacos. A favorite for my family on Cinco de Mayo. Great when served with an avocado salsa that has avocado, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and lime juice.

Really GOOD! I scaled the recipe to 2 servings because I had 1 lb. of chuck roast to play with. Instead of salsa, I added a 5 oz. can of El Pato (yellow can) because we like spicy. I also added the full can of green chilis, drained. Because it was only 1 lb. of meat, I shredded it right in the crockpot (after 8 hrs) and turned it to high heat for about two hours with the lid off. It made the most delicious carnitas! This is a definite keeper and next time I will make the full recipe and freeze in serving sizes for two, for a quick, easy meal. Thank you for sharing! Read More

Have made it for guests twice and both times it was a hit. Served with Mexican rice cornbread black bean and corn salad. Key lime pie for dessert provided a cool end to the delicious spicey beef dish. It is great as left overs. Read More

I was surprised with this one. It was very tender meat. We ate it with rice for one meal and then froze the rest. We shredded it and used it as a burrito filler for a 2nd meal. Both meals were amazing! Read More
