So this recipe began as an experiment and has become one of our family’s all-time favorite meals. We first served it as part of a big Tex-Mex spread for John’s birthday. And it was a hit! Since then, we’ve made it several times for weeknight meals or weekend get-togethers.
One of the key ingredients is a jar of simple Salsa Verde. I love the Herdez brand because it’s mild enough for almost any tastebud. (Trader Joe’s has an even milder and equally delicious version under its own brand, which I recommend if you have TJ’s in your area.)
After cooking all day in the crock pot, the pork becomes fall-apart tender. You can serve it in warm tortillas, over rice, or wrapped up in a leaf of lettuce. Top with queso fresco, cilantro, avocado, pickled onions, and a squeeze of lime for a truly amazing combination of flavors!
