"This different pork flavor is delicious served over rice and has always been met with praise. The spices in the marinade can stain, so I use a metal bowl to do the marinating in (also wear an apron!). DO TRY!" — Kimber

This was so delicious! A friend of mine from South America raved about it as well. I did make a few changes. After browning the pork on the stove top, I put it in the slow cooker. I deglazed the pan with the liquids, including a splash of white wine, and poured that into the slow cooker. I added extra juice to cover the meat. 45 minutes before serving, I added cubed potato, slivered onion and chopped tomato (20 minutes before serving). I thought this made the dish more authentic when compared to our local Peruvian restaurant.
I thought this was pretty good. Not as spicy as I thought it was going to be. Next time I'll add some cayenne. I cooked it all day on low in my slow cooker. I also added some baby carrots for some veggies. Served over rice. Thanks Kimber
My family thought this was wonderful for a change. I took advantage of another reviewer and added potatoes and carrots. I also added cayenne to spice it up. I would have thought that this is what is called a curry dish. Definitely a keeper.
I tried it. It was ok. This was a little too sweet for my taste, I might try it next time with 1/2 the OJ and add 1/2 cup lemon juice.
I really enjoyed this recipe. Unlike prior reviews, I did not find it difficult to make at all! (ref: not worth the time). I too added a dash of hot sauce. When you first brown the pork it will not really leave much sauce in bowl. As it browns drain marinade back to its bowl; but let it brown! Then add back the marinade. I would make it again.
This recipe is outstanding! Lovely flavour and texture. I added a few florets of cauliflower and a little more water to the meat on the second day, simmered it gently for about 20 minutes or so and it was delicious! I also served it with buttered, steamed potatoes and it made a lovely meal.
Many thanks Kimber. This is most certainly a "do again".
I've made this twice now, and second time's the charm. First, save yourself work: rather than cubing the meat, cut it into larger pieces and marinade all day. The larger pieces makes browning the meat go faster. I'm not even sure browning adds that much. Second, I used cider vinegar and cut down the orange juice by a third the second time I cooked it, giving it a more mellow and lass acidic flavor. Third, and this was special: This last time, when the meat was tender (and before thickening the sauce) I removed the meat from the pan, put the liquid through a fat separator, added enough water to bring it to 4 cups, brought it to a boil, added 2 cups well-rinsed basmati rice, cooked the rice until nearly done and returned the meat to the pan to re-heat. The rice was a beautiful color and had great flavor, with one less pan to clean. Serve with plain yogurt, if desired. Broccoli or cauliflower make good side dishes.
This recipe was very time consumming and had a strong vinegar flavor. Will not make again.
