Conga Lime Pork
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 4 hours
Easy and flavorful. Love the chipotle flavor!
I serve this often now because my family love the variety of flavors..This dish really makes the taste buds sing! The only thing I do differently/ add is I serve the meat n sauce over rice ...& the slaw is a side to it. Also to tame down the heat of the Chipotle I add only 1 pepper and the sauce. Other than that. ..it's terrific just as is! What a super recipe for the days you need a kick start to give your old taste buds a new adventure. Give it a try you'll see what I mean. Thanks TOH for another great keeper recipe!
I think it was a little too sweet.I guess I was expecting a more savory taste, even some Mexican taste with the chipotle peppers. Not sure which cuisine this would be considered African?maybe? I did like the health aspects with the broccoli slaw instead of a more comfort side of rice or potatoes. This dish was good just not awesome.
Great combination of flavors. Even my three little ones ate it without complaints, which makes it a winner at my house.
This recipe sounds unusual but the flavor combination is great! I made it as written, except that instead of buying broccoli coleslaw mix I used julienned peeled broccoli stems, which saved $, and I substituted a peach for the mango because I couldn't find ripe mangoes at the store. The slaw was simple and delicious, and it went surprisingly well with the pork.
I made this for my family but couldn't find the broccoli slaw so we just ate it pulled on buns with some BBQ sauce on the bun. It was delicious, very moist. I did not mix the BBQ sauce in with the meat, just squirted on the bun as I think BBQ might overpower.It was so good that I doubled the recipe and made it for a party we were having. This time I set it out with the buns and BBQ for those who might like it that way and I also made the slaw for those who wanted it that way. Very versatile and yummy!
I loved this. I eliminated the cornbread from the recipe to make it gluten free. Yum!
Can't give it a full 5 stars because I had to tweak it, which means I don't know how the recipe stands alone. Even still, the recipe deserves high praise. My tweaks: used green chiles instead of chipotle (we're spice wimps), and omitted lime peel because for me, peel kills my ability to taste the other flavors. Lime juice was sufficient. The molasses in the pork is a genius combo with the peppers, and the mango in the slaw adds an extra level of flavor that is surprisingly refreshing, not too sweet. The meat is flavorful enough to stand on its own. Made only better by combining it with the cruncy texture of the broccoli and the variety of sweet, savory, and spicy flavors. So much to taste in this one!
Loved this one - it's in the rotation!
The spicy-ness of the pork blends well with the cool slaw, lime, and mango flavors. My son just had the meat with rice and he loved it.
