Easy stove-top recipe with good flavor. I got this out of one of those little cookbooks at the check-out line ... a major addiction for me. :) We always serve this with Fideos a la Mexicana.(#256104)

I made this for dinner tonight to mixed reviews. The kids and I loved it but my husband said the sauce tasted like a Mexican tomato soup. I even rolled my 18 month old son's chicken nuggets in it and he INHALED them and he'll usually eat them last, if even at all. I used Chablis wine (a white) and I completely forgot to add the lime juice at the end, which I'm sure would have changed the flavor quite a bit. Either way, the pork stayed really, really moist when it cooked and it absorbed the flavors well. I didn't want to give such a great recipe less than 5 stars because of my screw up and I will make it again. I think I will try it with red wine next time and I will absolutely remember the lime juice.
I loved this dish! I omit the wine (never seem to have any around when I need it...) and just double up the broth. I serve it with regular mashed potatoes, but I drizzle some of the sauce from the chuletas on top, like a gravy. YUMMY.
Great flavor & easy to prepare--I'll make them again! I mixed 2 different left-over wines & paired it with cheesy-garlic mashed potatoes but will try the fideos next time.Thanks SJ.
