I made this. The orange juice fell apart. I ended up adding crushed red hot peppers and Goya Sofrito which gave it a better flavor.

If you make this in the slow cooker, the liquid will not disappear but will increase. So, then what?

I myself love the sauce, it contains so much flavour, but for those who don’t, they can just drain it. Unfortunately Frederick, it is impossible to make everyone happy.
