EXCELLENT recipe! We substituted Adobo as we weren't able to find the Mojo or the other one. Also seared the roast before placing in crockpot. We added lime juice and plenty of garlic salt. The first night we had it with rice; thereafter we ate it on soft flour tortillas with freshly chopped onions, jalapeƱos, fried potatoes, and anything else that sounded good. Thank you for sharing!

This is melt in your mouth good. I needed a cuban roast for sandwiches, but we ended up eating this with white rice one night and then using the leftovers for sandwiches the next day. We loved this recipe, thank you for sharing with us.

Good Basic Recipe, but I also felt it was missing something. I think lime juice would have complimented it well. Thanks!
