Salsa Verde Pork

Rated as 4.71 out of 5 Stars

"Quick prep work leads to succulent, delicious, and exceptionally easy pork for enchiladas, tamales, or burritos or even to eat all by itself! We use this pork in all sorts of things, but my husband's favorite way is simply right out of the pot. I can't trust him to do the shredding, because too much ends up in his mouth. This pork keeps well and gets even better after a day or two."

  1. Heat oil in large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Brown pork loin in hot oil, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  2. Transfer roast to the crock of a slow cooker. Pour green salsa over the pork.
  3. Cook on Low for 5 hours.
  4. Shred the pork into strands with two forks; stir with the sauce so the texture is somewhat even. Continue cooking on Low for 1 to 3 hours more.

The flavor was really good, but of course, this will only be as good as the salsa verde you use and the cut of pork. I used Salpica brand Cilantro Green Olive Salsa with Charred Tomatillos whic...

I’m surprised a recipe this easy and this delicious isn’t illegal. I’ll be honest, I didn’t even bother to brown the pork roast or do the extra step of shredding then putting it back in the cro...

It doesn't get any simpler than this, and for the ease of cooking, the taste is great! I did not worry about browning my loin in oil; I just put it in the crock pot, made a few cuts in the loin ...

Another meal everyone liked and I have 3 picky teenagers. I added some cumin and paprika and made it into enchiladas. Covered with more salsa verde and cheese and it was phenomenal. Will definit...

Super easy! I did brown the pork loin in a frying pan first to sear all sides. I had a rather large 5 lb roast, so I used an entire 16oz bottle of Herdez Salsa Verde. Delicious and tender. Husb...

I added rotel and green chilies also used pork shoulder. It turned out wonderful!

This pork recipe was very tasty and super easy! I put my pork in the crock pot straight from the freezer before going to work and it came out moist and not dry at all, but I do wish I had let it...

This is excellent! I copied from one of the comments--threw the roasts on the barbecue to sear as I made dinner the night before! Had plenty so served it one night as burritos and another over...

This was very easy & good. I cut the pork loin into 2" pieces & through it in the crock pot. I have a dutch oven but it's so darn heavy I opted to set it & forget it. This was very easy & car...
