Liked it. Did great in the crockpot. Nice to come home and have dinner pretty much ready to go.

Great flavor and a good family meal. I ate mine over lettuce as a salad, and my husband and kids ate theirs as pulled pork sandwiches. Good reviews from all! I'm in the maintenance phase (have been for over a year) and I actually dropped two pounds the day after eating this, though that was not my intent.

Quite possibly the best recipe I've ever tried from the internet. The ENTIRE family loved it!

This turned out great, tender and was super easy! I added a little bit of salsa and some anaheim peppers to the crock-pot. I ate mine with a whole wheat tortilla taco style minus the cheese and it was delicious and low calories/fat!

Wonderful! everyone just raved about it. Made Carnita Tacos with corn tortillas, lettuce, tomato, green onion, sour cream and cheese. 2 tacos, only 251 calories.

Very yummy, and make a ton of food! I loved how the meat fell apart, and the flavor was great. I didn't really know what to put with it, so I just ended up eating it with some FF refried beans and FF sour cream. One day I even made and open face sandwich with it. Was unclear on what 1 serving size is.

Made it into a naked burrito and I would have thought it was Qdoba had I been blindfolded!

Souvlaki can be made with any meat of your choice. Try it with chicken, shrimp or lamb.
Stuffing something with cheese instantly makes it better. If you wrap it in bacon, UNSTOPPABLE.
