The house smelled heavenly while it was cooking, but it didn't have much flavor when we ate. Thinking of using pork tenderloin next time, or even the burrito suggestion here.

Decent but not nearly as flavorful as I had hoped.

So easy and tasted great. Watch to make sure the meat doesn't get too dry - you may have to add liquid. Good over pasta as well as rice.

We loved this recipe in my house...so easy! Experiment with different kinds of salsa to change the flavor and the heat of this recipe!

This dish is seriously one of the best I have ever made. Such a great flavor and the beef really is tender and just falls apart in your mouth! I am going to make this at least once a month. I would not change anything about it. In the future I may try the mixture over noodles or mashed potatoes.

This is an easy tasty dinner. I've served it over brown rice or in tortillas. I used Pace Picante Sauce and had plenty of moisture remaining. I keep cut up stew meat in the freezer so it's an easy go to recipe.

All the liquid cooked off so it was really dry. It said to use a slotted spoon to serve, but didn't need to because there was no liquid left to strain. Put on corn tortillas instead with extra salsa and sour cream to try and give it some moisture. We won't be making this again.
