    I just made this last night and it was SUPER DELICIOUS and so, so easy! I’ve never used liquid smoke before but it was definitely worth buying. Thanks for the recipe, we will definitely be making it again.

    This was so good and such a fresh twist on pulled pork. The cucumber seemed an odd addition, but was my favorite part of the dish.

    This reminds me of the Chop Chop bowls they serve at Pollo Tropical here in Florida. The biggest difference is that at the restaraunt the pork is served over yellow rice and you can get black beans and sauted onions added if you want. I may try this recipe soon to see if does resemble the chop chop bowls.

      You wouldn’t cook it nearly as long. Depending on how many pork chops you used and how thick they were sliced would determine how long. Just watch it very closely. Maybe only cook half the time. We’ve never made it with pork chops, so be sure to let us know. :)

    I love a more smokey flavor, so put more liquid smoke. Add a little garlic powder… makes this over the top! I’ve made this in huge amounts for fundraisers and groups. Just put it on bun as a sandwich. Coleslaw on the sandwich is yummy, too!
