Slow Cooker Chile Verde Pork Roast
2-3 lb. pork roast (I usually get a shoulder because it is cheaper, but any kind will work!)
1 onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 green pepper, finely chopped
2-3 tomatillos, husked and chopped*
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped (optional- I usually don’t add this because of my kids)
1 (16 oz) jar green salsa
1 (4 oz) can green chilis
1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 tsp cumin
*These are like a green tomato, wrapped in a husk. When I first tried one a couple of years ago, I had to ask someone at the grocery store to point them out to me, but I have learned that most grocery stores carry them and they are fairly inexpensive. They are delicious in this pork!
Spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place your roast in the slow cooker. Add all other ingredients (I just dump them in right on top of the roast). Cook on low for 8-10 hours. Once finished, shred the roast with two forks (it will literally fall apart). Serve on flour tortillas for tacos and add desired toppings.
Our favorite toppings:
Lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, cheese, green peppers, jalapenos
