I like the idea to put it in a Taco. What is your prefared topping in a taco?
Amy D. 12 Nov
Easy and delicious! I serve this as "street tacos"; on small tortillas with chopped onions and cilantro, sliced radish and tomatillo salsa. My roommate/bff cannot get enough!

I could not believe something so delicious could be so easy.

These came out great without adding the “extra” step. Still have some left over from last week and used them in a taco salad. Good stuff!

It turned out great! After I fork through the meat I laid it out on a flat pan and broil it. I poured some of the juice on the meat before broiling and it made it perfect! Not dry

Adam W. 24 Jul
Great flavors! I used the slow cooker on low for 8 hours and threw it in the oven under the broiler. The broiler is key!

My didn’t turn out like the picture. I think I doubled the recipe, so it took a lot longer for it to turn syrupy. I may have burned it a bit. Though mine doesn’t look as good as the picture, it was still delicious.
Kimberly W. 19 Jun
Love this. I over broiled mine unfortunately. Def gonna make it again but I’ll keep a better eye on the broiler next time.

fun to make could use a little more taste I'm not a foodie so I'm not sure what but it was good was not overpowering, add some onion, salsa and lime and some corn tortillas and we got something.
Adam C. 7 Jun

Wes R. 1 May
It was amazing! Great flavor. before cooking down the sauce, I took the time to put the sauce in the freezer in order to skim off the fat, it was worth it. Will definately make again.
