Shredded Pork Burritos
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 9 hours
Makes16 servings (2-1/3 cups sauce)
I'm sorry folks, but this was way too sweet! I used 1/2 the amount of brown sugar, added salt, paprika, chili powder and it was still awful. The meat was very tender, though. I didn't care for the Tomatillo sauce either.
My large family LOVES this recipe (and we have some "food critics"!) I have doubled it using 7 qt crockpot and it works as well. If you want to increase the heat and add to the layers of flavor, add a few chopped up chipotle peppers in adobo sauce! The tomatillo sauce is heaven! This recipe is always a hit! Repeat, repeat, repeat! Adjust spice level according to guests -we make it mild by cutting down on peppers when grand kids present!
The pork is delicious, the sauce is amazing and when you put them together, it is like magic, we couldn't stop eating it!
The sauce for the burritos is maybe the best that I have ever had! I also put shredded cabbage in the burritos and they were great!
I really wanted to love this recipe. When I saw it in the Slow Cooker cookbook, I was very excited to try it.The pork smelled heavenly while it was cooking. But I found that the pork was very sweet when I was shredding it, and didn't even add the last bit of brown sugar, opting instead to put in extra cumin, which really helped with the sweetness. I would not add the coke at all if I made it again. And I might try it with beef since it has a bit stronger flavor to stand up to the rest.The flavor was good, but I wasn't wowed. I really wished it tasted as wonderful as it smelled when cooking.
Absolutely fabulous! I made this for Mother's Day & it was a huge hit. My husband's favorite kind of food is Mexican, so I'm always afraid to make something new. He loved it! The food was worth the effort.
The Cafe Rio Pork Barbacoa WITH the dressing?! My family loves it--heaven!! And THANK YOU!!!
This is the 1st recipe I have ever rated on any website. Thats how wonderful this recipe is. I have made this 3 times in the last 6 months for family get togethers and it gets RAVE reviews. It is so easy. This was the 1st time I had ever used a tomatillo and we found the tomatillo sauce to be absolutely wonderful on just about anything so make extra and it can be made a day or two in advance. Most slow cooker meat recipes are dry and tasteless this one is tender, juicy and flavorful. You can adjust the spices for personal preference - I leave out the red pepper flakes because I don't like much spice.
I followed the recipe to the letter. It was good but it isn't one of those WOW recipes.
