A Mexican recipe that the \”Whole Family\” will love!  

This is such a SIMPLE, flavorful, comfort-foodie, kick up your senses kind of meal. You will want to make it again and again.

So let\’s get started.

I started this recipe with a crock-pot pork roast that I seasoned with salt, pepper, comino, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, and oregano. After 8 hours of cooking the pork in it\’s own juices it was falling apart and was perfect to shred and use for my carne asada.

If you don\’t have a roast you can always use the carne asada dressing on raw meat, marinade and then cook or grill. Turns out wonderful!

Toppings for tacos:  

1 onion, sliced

1 bell pepper, sliced

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 tomato, diced

1 avocado, sliced

lettuce leaves for tacos


\"\"Here\’s what you do: 

1. Grill onions and bell peppers in coconut oil for 10-15 minutes.

2. Combine oil, juices, garlic, peppers, and spices.

3. Pour dressing over pork and mix together.

It should look like this beautiful bowl of seasoned pork:

4. Fill lettuce leaves with onions, bell peppers and pork. Top with diced tomatoes and sliced avocado.

I hope your whole family enjoys this meal as much as my \”Whole Family\” did.

      This sounds amazing and I will try it, but “carne asada” literally mean “grilled meat.” Growing up in a Hispanic culture, I know we “carne asada” is always beef, not pork. Maybe change the name? Just a suggestion. Love your website and have the iphone app.

      This should be called carnitas. Carne Asada is beef, carnitas is pork. The recipe sounds yummy.
