Carne Adovada

Carne Adovada

"I learned to make this spicy red chile dish by experimenting in my kitchen after enjoying it at a friend's place. It takes a while to make, but it is well worth it. Serve hot with tortillas, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa and sour cream. This also works well with a pork roast."

Considering this recipe calls for 3/4 chile powder, it is amazingly tasteless. It needs severe doctoring. The only good thing about this recipe is the ease of preparation.

I tried it with a pork loin roast and marinated it for about 12-13 hours. I also added onions and green chilis to it. It wasn't spicy to my husband or me, but we really enjoyed it.

I added some fresh, minced garlic to the marinade, yet the meat still tasted like a regular roast. I didn't cook the meat in the marinade, but was wondering was I supposed too? I did add some ...

The marinade benefits from adding cumin and garlic (fresh or powdered).
