Thanks for posting. I started them on the stove, then dropped them into the crock pot to finish. I had to add another 1/4 cup of wine before they were done. My grocery store has been having freshly smoked chipotle peppers. I chopped up 3 and added them to the mix for a slight smokiness. Next time, will add 1 or 2 more and allow enough time to do them all the way in the crock pot.

Husband cooked this using leftover pork from a previous day, he felt the wine was not enough liquid so added water, but as it cooked it was too much liquid. He also added a dash of hot sauce. We really enjoyed the flavor and are going to attempt again this weekend with "new" pork and see how the liquid is with just the wine. We served over Spanish rice and there was none left!

I am sorry to say that this dish was just so...so. I followed the recipe exactly. The aroma was fantastic. However, the taste was OK. Next time I will try to get some pork with bones in it. Maybe that will add to the flavor. Thank you.

Well this turned out better than I expected! I used an Italian vermouth for my white wine and made an almost double batch as I found 3 1/2 lbs of sirloin chops in the freezer and I had over a pound of boneless spare rib tails left from end of the slabs of ribs from yesterday's dish from 'zaar that I made with side spare ribs. I increased the amount of salt called for to a total of 1 whole teaspoon and was happy with the result and I also doubled the seasoning but when it was almost ready to add the water I felt it needed more flavour so added a tablespoon more oregano and a tsp of garlic powder and a couple of teaspoons of onion powder to bump up the flavour. When I tasted it after shredding I thought "Meh, it's ok" but when I tasted it after it had cooled...WOW not bad. ETA: this would make excellent perogy filling! Mix with a little mashed potato and /or fried mushrooms or small pastry appetizer filling

My favorite thing about this recipe is the simplicity of it. I made this using a cheaper cut of boneless "meat for carnitas" and found it to be amazingly tasty. I forgot the bay leaf, but otherwise followed the recipe. Will definitely make this again. Kids loved it! Hubby loved it!

Amazing! I too did not think it would have the flavor it does with so few ingredients but it was awesome. The only thing I did differently was to add an extra 1/4 cup of water the last hour. The pork was so tender and delicious. I will definitely be making this again, thanks Elissa!

I added a few cups of a Mexican brand Chicken/Tomato broth with cumin and a handful of the pearl rice and let that simmer with the pork. AWESOME!!! Especially with lots of chopped green onions and fresh cilantro!! This is one of the best pork recipes on this site! Thanks so much for sharing this-my family loves it!
