Description

Pork roast is slow cooked with salsa verde and vegetables and then served over rice in this easy dinner recipe.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds boneless pork roast
  • 1 cup prepared salsa verde
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • rice, for serving

Instructions

  1. Trim the pork of fat. Cut into 2-inch cubes and rinse. Place in a slow cooker.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the salsa, broth, onion and cumin and bring to a boil over high heat. Add in the tomatoes and pour the mixture over the pork. Cook on low until the pork is tender and pulls apart, 6-8 hours.
  3. Transfer the pork to a large bowl and shred. Cover to keep warm.
  4. Add the liquid and vegetables from the slow cooker into a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, skimming the fat from time to time, until thickened slightly, about 20 minutes. Add the pork into the liquid along with 1/4 cup of the cilantro. Heat through.
  5. To serve, ladle the pork mixture over a bed of rice. Garnish with the remaining cilantro and the sour cream.
