    Cooked okay, but not as flavourful as i would have liked.

    I found this very bland! I had to add a whole heap of chilli and paprika to have any flavour at all.. Wouldn’t use this recipe again

    It’s good it has to tweaked a bit. I doubled everything, except the meat, this time. Hopefully it’s more flavorful.

    Bland, had to spruce up big time with other seasonings and double and triple the amounts shown. If I were to do this again- season with cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper sear both sides on cast iron and put it in the oven at 450 for 8 to 10 and then pull it apart in some red pepper lime marinade and add tomitillo salsa .

    Don't bother...had to shred and put in a skillet and simmer with diced tomatoes and seasonings to make it close to flavorful.

    My beef was frozen so we put it in the night before following the recipe but adding a whole can of sprite. When we woke up there wasn’t a lot of flavor. We added 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp tajin, 1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, 1/2 cup lime juice and another tsp chili powder. Then let it cook all day. I did add a bit of water so it wouldn’t dry out. It was great and had a little kick to it! I gave it three stars because we had to add so much to it. If I wasn’t using it for burritos it would have been fine the way it was.

    Great! Easy to put together and meat was so tender!

    I tried this with extra seasoning since it just didn't seem to be enough spices for three pounds of beef. Mine came out bland and dry.

    Nice flavor. Combined with rotel and black beans and ate nacho style with some chipolte gouda.

    Turned out as instructed, Don’t be concerned surplus liquids left over as doesn’t all get absorbed 👍

    We really liked it. We didn’t add enough lime at the end, will kick it up a notch next time. Used the meat for tacos and everyone (even my picky kids) ate it up!

    Bland and dry. Had to spruce it up!! Not bad for beginners.

    Awful! Did not taste like anything but flat soda. Horrible dinner!

    Bland, tasted more sweet. Tried adding salt after it was shredded. Weird tasting, nothing Mexican in it

    I will definitely make this again!!

    It was very bland, but it was super easy. I thought it seemed to easy and sure enough there was no real flavor other than beef. I will not be making this again

    I made this awhile back,making it again tonight. I used a deer roast both times. I tenderize the roast ,in a Hefty plastic bag, over nite. The next day I shake salt, garlic powder & chili powder all over the roast & let it set over night in same bag. The next day poured a Sprite in to the bag and let it set overnight. The next day cook it in crockpot. When done shredded the roast & pour the lime juice over it. Delicious ‼️ Served it with Pinto beans & Cilantro rice.

    Not bad but you need some salsa verde after for it as it can be quite dry

    First time making something like this. Tasted great!
    Yummly User 2 years ago
    It’s okay. Using the meat for sandwiches, saucing it heavily for flavour. Acts as a vessel for sauce basically.
    Yummly User 2 years ago
    Definitely will be making this again!

    this recipe is very good

    For UK - I recommend Sprite as the lemon lime soda (full fat) as it works better and has a stronger flavour than 7up and actually adding 1.5x to double the amount of salt. Also really needed the lime juice at the end to give it the kick of citrus. Great in a wrap with some guacamole salad and chilli sauce.

    Ok, not a lot of flavor
    Yummly User 2 years ago
    It was good and made a great burrito with green verde sauce
