Slow Cooker Chile Verde


Chile Verde is a perfect slow cooker recipe, because the longer it simmers, the better the flavors. It doesn’t matter if your pork is boneless or bone-in. For variety, you can substitute chicken thighs or leg quarters for the pork.
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pork shoulder roast (3 to 4 pounds)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup chopped onion
2 cups diced tomatoes
2 cups prepared salsa verde (we like Herdez brand)
1 chopped jalapeno pepper
2 teaspoons chile powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 Heat oil in a large frying over medium-high heat.

2 Sprinkle salt and pepper over both sides of pork, then place pork in hot oil. Brown both sides, then remove from pan and place in slow cooker.

3 Add onions to pan and sauté until just beginning to soften, scraping up any brown bits from bottom of pan. Pour onions into slow cooker.

4 Add the rest of the ingredients except the cilantro to the slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 hours.

5 At the end of cooking, the meat will be falling apart. Stir, taste and adjust seasoning.

6 Serve with warm corn tortillas and steamed rice.

7 Garnish with chopped cilantro.
