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

Roast - 1Ingredients

2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 lbs boneless pork shoulder roast
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.

2. Stir broth and vinegar in small bowl. Pour over roast. Cook, covered, on high for 4 1/2 to 5 hours.

Roast - 53. Transfer roast to large plate. Shred pork with two forks. Remove and discard any visible fat. Skim and discard fat from cooking liquid. Return pork to cooking liquid. Add remaining 3 ingredients. Stir. Cook, covered on high for about 20 minutes until heated through.

Roast - 64. Enjoy!

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
