I’m a huge fan of Gina’s Skinny Taste recipes. When I saw her recipe for slow cooker pernil, I knew I had to try it. A really simple and delicious meal. I paired it with her avocado, black bean and cucumber salsa and a package of La Preferida Spanish rice.
Really the hardest part (if there is a hard part) is remembering that the meat needs to marinate for a day ahead of time. I turned on the crock pot before leaving for work and started salivating when I walked in the door when I got home.
This was my first time trying pernil and I was a little unsure of how to eat it. I guess I’m used to putting something like that in a tortilla instead of a bunch of it on my plate by itself. Actually, I just kind of mixed everything together as I was eating it and it tasted great! Never even missed the tortilla (ok, but what I did miss was my trusty Corona w/ lime). The best part? It’s not even that spicy, so S got to enjoy it, too!
LOL! I’m going to claim my first case of “pregnancy brain”. I forgot to post the recipe! OMG. Here ya go!
