    Pokey in San Antonio, TX's Note:

    This is the Caribbean meets south Texas. One of our favorite dishes is barbacoa (shredded beef) served on corn tortillas with salsa. We eat it for breakfast (really, it's true). Well here is our Tex-Mex Sunday morning special--Jamaica style.

      I wont leave a star rating or photo because of the changes I made while making Pokey's recipe. Used about a 2 1/2 pound pork roast for this recipe. Placed it in my slow cooker and only used 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced. Could not find a scotch bonnet pepper so I used a habanero and only 1 teaspoon for the salsa. An interesting flavor mixture of mango and pepper with heat to bump it up a notch. Thank you Pokey for sharing your recipe!
