Not sure what these older reviews are talking about. Sauce cooked down perfectly. Very tasty meal. I made a deconstructed guacamole type salad as a side. We really enjoyed this meal. Funny thing is that I have made chicken enchiladas from a Cooking Light recipe that everyone loves too. They sure know how to do Mexican dishes correctly.
Great flavor for the pork. I did read the reviews and knew to allow extra time to reduce the cooking liquid. However, serving the pork in the tortillas was a giant mess. We all agreed to make the pork and serve it over rice next time instead of making the tacos. Definitely a weekend dish due to the time needed to prepare.
Simple to prep and a tasty change-up. The broth took longer than 20min to reduce -- which was okay because the pork was easier to handle after it had cooled a bit. No jicama this week, so subbed coleslaw and liked the oj/honey dressing. Served with black refried beans and CL's grilled mango with chiles. Good supper.
I just made this for dinner and it was great! The hubby loved it so definitely on the repeat list. I didn't have chipotle chili powder so I used regular chili powder and it still turned out good.
Give yourself some time to reduce the sauce and shred the pork, but my 3 year old and his play-date ate this up! I modified with pork chops http://www.dishoverdinner.com/2014/07/rockcrok-pork-chop-tacos.html
Took a lot longer than stated to reduce liquid to one cup, which impacts dinner timing. Won't make again.
My family with a 3 and 6 year old really enjoyed this recipe. As soon as I took a bite I loved the flavor combinations but thought I'd soon hear complaints of "it's too spicy". To my surprise my 6 year old said she liked it and it was sweet like candy. It's not really that sweet, she just says that anytime a meal tastes a little sweet. We will definitely be making again and will probably even try just putting it in the crockpot. Also, I couldn't find jicama so I cut up radishes instead.
This was really yummy. Matise is right, though - it takes some time, especially for a week night. I thought the balance of sweet and savory was about right, but my boyfriend could have used a little less sweetness. We'll both enjoy the leftovers, though! I struggled between giving it 3 and 4 stars, but I don't know that I would make it for a special occasion. Also, I didn't have any trouble reducing the sauce - I actually used less time than prescribed, but I was boiling it pretty vigorously.
I had no difficulties whatsover with this recipe. Followed it as descried. I didn't like the slaw so much so I would just put cilantro over it to add a little contrasting color. My kids loved it!
Had to double it for the pork I had defrosted. Nice flavors. Needed lime on the slaw. Too much sauce even after reducing vigorously for 1/2 hour. Either reduce longer or make less.
