This pork is seriously so tender and full of flavor . . . and requires very little work on your end! We love the chile verde pork in tacos, but it also tastes great on a salad, with tortilla chips, wrapped in a burrito, or even eaten as is! My husband and I have been tinkering with this recipe for a long time, and I think we finally have it down perfectly. It is one of our favorites!
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
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.

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! *Toppings: Lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, cheese, green peppers, jalapenos
