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
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


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!

    • And leftovers in a sandwich are so good for the rest of the week!

      Glad to see that you’re back commenting on the blog!

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
