Jalisco Pork

"This is also known as Carne Adobado. Either way, it is so simple to make, and quite delicious. Nicely sliced up and served in a tortilla, it's a nice change from a steak taco. This recipe comes from Sunset magazine, if I remember right."

    This was great. I loved it, and my g/f was even more ecstatic about it. It was super easy to make , and the combination of spices was awesome. It led to a really complex taste. I used boneless pork chops instead of the tenderloin (we're on a law school budget). I also made more of the dry rub and really slathered them in it b/c of past comments. They turned out super flavorful. I actually decided to fry up the jalapeños and cook the chops in the resulting oil to give it a little more "kick". We served sliced with sour cream and jalapeños so we could eat them burrito style. We will be making this again!!!!!

    Sue, this was great! Really easy and tasty and definitely will have a permanent home in our menu rotation. We served the pork in whole wheat tortillas, with low fat sour cream and 2% shredded cheddar cheese topped with some pickled jalepenos. After we cooked the pork in there was so much yummy seasoning left in the pan we added a can of fat free refried beans to it, which made them absolutely delicious. We added a green salad and it was a fantastic meal. Lastly we cooked the pork in cooking spray instead of oil with great results. Thanks Sue for a GREAT recipe!

    I liked this pork very much. Other than scaling the recipe for a smaller amount, I didn't change anything. It was very easy to make and the pork turned out flavorful and tender. I put it in flour tortillas with some salad, and it made a very good dinner. (Though a little messy. But good things are always messy.) Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.

    Made this tonight using a boneless pork loin. Added 1 tsp of cayenne pepper to the list of ingredients, sliced the loin crosswise in thin strips, marinated for 4 hours and cooked in the crockpot on high for 4 hours. Very nice flavor. Will make again in the crockpot but am thinking of using pork butt or country style ribs as the loin was a tad dry.

    Really tasty. Marinated pounded pork sirloin chops overnight then barbecued them. Sliced up and served with guacamole in corn tortillas with cole slaw on the side. I forgot limes too, but next time I'll use them for sure. This is so versatile, could be served with chopped tomato, shredded lettuce, whatever you like. So quick for after work. Thanks Sue L

    this was great although I did not use all the amounts of seasoning, I used seasoned salt in place of white salt and added in a pinch of cayenne pepper, served on warmed flour tortillas, thanks for sharing Sue!
