Pork Verde (Crock Pot Recipe)

Yes, I have another crock pot recipe to share this week. I can’t help it, my crock pot is probably my most used kitchen tool. It’s just easy and great for busy days (which for me, seems like every day!!). My family loves spicy food, so I’m going to warn you that this recipe has some kick. You can certainly reduce this by eliminating the green chiles and the cumin.

3-4 lb. boneless pork butt
1 jar salsa verde
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. green chiles
2 cloves garlic
1 medium onion

Verde Sauce

1. Chop the garlic and the onion.
2. Place the pork butt in the crock pot and season with salt and pepper to taste (you can see I like to use crock pot bags. They make clean up so much easier.)
3. Place the chopped garlic and onion on top of the pork.

7. Shred the pork and serve.

You can certainly serve the pork with rice and beans as a side dish, but my family likes to eat them taco style. We top them with shredded pepperjack cheese, chopped scallions, and cilantro. Serve them any way you want, they are delicious!
