I have never had carne adovada with lemon juice in it. Although purists out here insist on just the red chilis and water to make "red sauce", I usually add onion, garlic, cumin and a dash of salt, and use chicken bouillion cubes to flavor the water. Some people add tomato sauce - I recommend against it. Use a fatty roast if you are going to slow cook it, like a picnic, so that it stays juicy. This is definitely not a good recipe for a pork loin. Adovada is good on sandwiches, tacos, burritos, for making tamales, and by itself. You don't really need to dress it with lettuce, tomato, cheese etc.
