Easy Crock Pot Pork Ju Ju Burritos
Prep Time 10 min ~ Cook Time 6 hours
5 lbs pork sirloin roast
1 bottle Conan's Island Ju Ju (we suggest Chipotle Mango but use your personal favorite Ju Ju!)
1 block queso fresco cheese crumbled
And any other condiments that suit your fancy; chopped onion or cilantro, etc!
Don’t forget extra Ju Ju!
Cut pork sirloin roast into 1 inch slabs place in crock pot and pour in your bottle of Island Ju Ju. Cover, set on low for 6 hours. Now, serve it up with all the fixins!
We used Chipotle Mango and set it up before we left for the market! So easy! We made ours into Chimichangas and served condiments on the side. Delicious! You can even add scrambled eggs to this and/or diced and fried potatoes, wrap them and freeze them, then microwave them and fry them for easy premade breakfast burritos!
Ju Ju Marinated Top Round Steak
Prep Time 5 min ~ Cook Time 15 min
1 thick cut top round steak
4 oz low sodium soy sauce
2 oz toasted sesame oil
cracked black pepper
Place all ingredients into a shallow dish then place steak into dish. Be sure to turn the steak a couple of times during its marinating. You can marinate for as little as a few hours or up to 36 hours. Stab the raw steak with a meat fork while it marinates to allow those delicious flavors to soak in. Get your grill hot and make sure it is well seasoned. Place the steak on the grill and let those grill marks happen (grill marking is caramelizing the meat and that is what really brings out the flavor)! 5 min on each side or flip it more often for more grill marks! Let the meat rest for 10 minutes (depending on the size of the meat-the bigger the meat the more rest it needs)
This recipe works great with flank steak as well and also lends itself to being served with yaki soba!
