This was awesome! I used a pork loin roast. I didn't use the jalapeno, but substituted 1/4 tsp Chipotle Chili powder. Served on whole wheat flour tortillas with fresh avocado squirted with fresh lime juice and sour cream in place of the pre-made guacamole. Added some shredded lettuce too. Definite keeper for this house.

I did the pork to the T, and it came out great. Nice orange-y taste. My boyfriend loved it. I served it in warm tortillas, with shredded lettuce, made my own Pico de gallo, squeeze of lime, and drizzled it with some Salsa Verde. Good recipe to have.

I did use the optional pickled jalapeno, and it was spicy but really good. I used pork loin since it was what I had, and it was delicious.

Delish!! I may never have ground beef tacos again. I used pork loin to cut down on fat. The second time I made this, I skipped the oven and put it in the crock pot, still wonderful. Served with corn tortillas, pico, sour cream, lettuce and cheese.

absolutely wonderful! I added Aleppo and chipotle, just to spice it up. What a wonderful and simple addition to my collection!

tasty!!! really like the citrus taste. its also one of the few recipes for pork shoulder that doesn't require 5hrs in the crockpot/oven. i didn't use any Goya products and was still able to create the recipe. Not spicy at all even though i added the jalepeno. Ate with warmed tortillas and homemade pico de gallo.
