tres verdes pulled pork

Roast - 7Recently, we have embraced a new tradition in our home where every Sunday my husband will make a meal in the slow cooker. Prior to this, he maybe cooked twice a year. That’s if I was lucky. In preparing a weekly roast that lasts several days, it takes much stress off of me regarding mealtimes during the week. What a treat it has been!

This recipe is entitled Tres Verdes due to the green chilies, tomatillo salsa, and green onion. While we had the pork shoulder and slow cooker, we were missing these three key green ingredients. What we ended up using was one Spanish onion. I suppose what Geoffrey then made for us was Uno Blanco Pulled Pork. Regardless, it was delicious! Here is the original recipe for three green pulled pork.

Tres Verdes Pulled Pork

2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne powder
1/2 tsp salt

1 1/3 cups chicken broth
3 tbsp white vinegar
1 cup tomatillo salsa
1 can diced green chilies
1/3 cup chopped green onion

Steps

Roast - 21. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Rub over roast. Place roast in slow cooker.
