    I added sour orange and more lemon for more of a Cuban taste... more like my grandmother used to make. Overall, it was a crowd pleaser and a good recipe to feed a lot of people.

    It turned out very good as a part of the cuban sandwiches that I made. It would have been good with some rice and black beans and maybe some plantains too.

    I’ve been searching for a Cuban pork recipe and was thrilled to have found this one. Super early make and melt in your mouth deliciousness. I used a boneless roast and shredded it once cooked. The recipe is the perfect combination of flavors. I opted out of adding the red pepper flakes.

    Cooked last week in the slow cooker and 3 young kids loved it although I would take the chilli out next time and I don’t think you’d loose much taste wise.
    It was good everyone ate it.... very tender, just got dry after shredding it but o well. Next time I will put it back in the crockpot with the juice instead of putting it on the plate

    Not great. Not very flavorful and the meat was a bit of a choir to chew.

    The meat was juicy and flavorful!

    I actually used lean pork loin and cut the recipe in half. Even though it may have been a little better with a different cut of meat, it was tender and flavorful and probably healthier! Glad to have another dish that’s easy to make and tasty!

    This was sooo good. Just the right spices and tenderness. Also made the cilantro lime rice. Will have leftovers making tacos.

    This came out so good! I cooked it in the oven instead. I browned it first then cooked it at 250°F for about 7 hours. Yum!

    It can use a bit more flavor had to add quite a bit of salt after cooking and shredding, but overall it came out nice.
