Reviewed Slow-Cooker Pork Tacos

Apr 7, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

fantastic and so easy! used cumin and crushed red pepper rather than all the other hots. added some maple syrup because of sweet tooth. great. also added 50% more cider vinegar, and a cup of root beer, because it's the elixir of bbq. BTW, it is AMAZINGLY easier to trim the pork while it's still partially frozen. Everyone but me may have...

Great tasting way to use top round/london broil. The meat disintigrated. I loathe pinto beans and left them out. This was very tasty and even my finicky kids like it!""

i used london broil, actually followed directions but used 1/2 tomatoes b/c I don't love tomato based stuff usually. also 1/3 the chili powder for some delicate palates. Very good with salsa as a topping, along with sour cream of course. ""

this is my new sausage recipe. Just take care not to overcook. Since the sausage is so fine (at least the way I did it) it can dry up quickly. Delicious. No overwhelming flavors, you can taste the delicious pork. I used boneless country style ribs (on sale) rather than buy the 10lb bone-in shoulder butt. AB is the KING.""

REALLY good, ZERO complaints (and I have two PICKY kids age 4 and 6). only used 1/2 red and 1/2 green pepper (next time will use all of both). only used 1/2 cup of bbq sauce and I'm glad b/c otherwise I think it would have been too saucy and bbqy. REALLY good""

this was tender juicy deliciousness. the sirloin was only about 3/4 inch thick and only took 5 min on each side, never made it to the top rack. used broiler on high. Next time only a little more than 4 min/side for just under medium. yum""

This was the best chicken i've ever made. used skinless boneles...

Drool. So tasty and moist. I used chili powder and cumin instead of ancho chiles. I also used about 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar. If this is going to be BETTER tomorrow, I'm going to need to take the day off. Delicious and, of course, crock-pot easy.""
