Not bad, but it needed ummphh. I omitted the cloves bc personally, I despise the flavor. When it was done cooking, I sampled the sauce and it was meh, at best. It had the heat, but the flavor just was meh. So I added about 1 1/2 tbsp of chili powder and 2 tsp of garlic salt and that punched up the flavor quite a bit. Now I’m happy with it.
This was amazing. I made it exactly as it appears in the recipe. The spice was perfect. The rice was so flavorful as well. This is a keeper for my family!
This was fabulous!!! Husband and both kiddos asked for seconds for both the meat and rice and said they could eat it every night! The only substitutions I made was with the rice, used olive oil in place of butter, brown rice, chicken stock and less salt because of salt. Delicious!!
My family loved this recipe. We found it flavorful and not spicy at all. Some ate it as a taco on flour tortillas with the usual fixings, lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, sour cream, hot sauce and some ate is as a “bowl” layering it: rice , meat, and the taco toppings. I froze the extra liquid to make into a gravy, add to soups or anything else I can think of.
I love this recipe. I made it as is and it is flavorful and filling. I did find lime-cilantro rice that is FANTASTIC at my store, and I swear it tastes just like I made it from scratch. This dish is a keeper!
Love this recipe!! Will be doing this one again.
Loved the rice. It was delicious!
This recipe is wonderful and I've made it so many times!
This was really flavorful
Family loved this. We did it slightly different, served it street taco style with mini flour tortillas, sour cream, etc. I have a spanish rice recipe I love so I did that instead. The barbacoa was excellent. Usually when I make a crock pot roast type anything (stew, pulled pork, etc.) I have a huge amount left over that no one ever goes back to. With this, I only had one tiny little 8 ounce containers worth and I bet it'll be gone today. No one in my family had issue with the spice, however, everyone in the house except me snacks on jalapenos - so we're pretty spice loving.
