Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 6 hours
So Harley down votes a recipe he hasn’t even made because he doesn’t like one ingredient in it. Jerk. Someone’s gotta say it so I did. I’ll upvote it to balance him out and make it next week.
I read the title and knowing how much I like Carnitas, I thought oh yeah let's eat. Then I read about the tequila and that just turned me off. I found a great recipe on another site. I hate liquor of any kind, even beer. Thanks anyway.
These were very good! I used a method from Allrecipes site, to crisp up the meat in the oven. Topped with lime juice, sour cream, onion, radish, cilantro and Monterey Jack cheese. Used quick fried corn tortillas. Delicious!
Easy recipe but unfortunately did not feel they had much flavor. Followed the recipe exactly and used the tequila (which did give it a unique flavor) but overall was not impressed. Do plan to take the leftovers to work for the next potluck- am sure they will love them.
These were so easy and tasty! the whole family loved them. Can't wait to make them again for a party food! Thank you for sharing!
We LOVE this recipe!! I'd give it six stars if that was an option! We make it quite often. I tried using the chicken broth once when I didn't have the tiquila, and while it was still really good It really needs the tiquila for full flavor. I'm also going to try using the corn tortillas as others have sugested, I like them better anyway! We also like using the liquid, it makes a wonderful tortilla soup. Yumm!
This was quite good. It was done after 6 hours (I used a pork loin). As another reviewer indicated, I turned it after 5 hours and let it cook one more hour. Used a 7-oz. can of fire-roasted chilies. For toppers, I used red pickled onions, fresh lime, cilantro, chopped grape tomatoes, sour cream and guacamole. Used both flour and corn tortillas. Next time will try to drain off some of the excess liquid.
LOVED these! I served them on small corn tortillas with Emily's Honey Lime Coleslaw (also here on the Taste of Home site). I will never make another recipe for a pork taco again. I loved how all the cilantro, onions, garlic and salsa really infused in the meat. The ratio of liquid to meat here is just right.....it's nice and moist but not dripping when you serve it.
Really delicious on small corn tortillas with pickled red onions and fresh chopped cilantro!
I needed a recipe yo use up some pork I had thawedz found this! We really liked it! Moist, and tender! The leftovers made a wonderful pork green chili stew!
