boneless pork shoulder, cubed
5 (7 ounce) cans
1 (4 ounce) can
diced jalapeno peppers
1 (14.5 ounce) can
I would highly suggest replacing the diced tomatoes with stewed tomatillos and adding the following ingredients: corriander, cumin, lime juice, black beans, corn, & cilantro. If nothing else, the tomatillos keep the chile more green.
If you want this to tase like real chile verde, then follow my additions. Be sure to remove the jalapeno addition if you have kids to feed as it will make it to spicy for them. I did not use green salsa, I used green enchilada sauce (La palma), added two shredded, dried New Mexico chiles, 3 cloves of garlic, a can of roasted green chiles, 1/2 TB salt, 1/2 TB cumin, then I added 2 TB cornstarch during the last 30 minutes to thicken the sauce. Be sure to dissolve the cornstarch in cold water, then add to the hot chile verde. If you follow these additions, you'll have authentic chile verde from a slow cooker!
The flavor of the meat is outstanding, and it's incredibly tender. Chili Verde is meant to be more than seasoned meat, so expect a *liquidy* product - the sauce is flavorful and has great heat, perfect on rice. The one thing I altered was the slow cooker setting - I just went for 6 hours on low, and the meat was perfectly cooked and tender, I'll be making this again and again - thanks so much for sharing :)
I HAD TO RATE THIS AGAIN BECAUSE IT WAS EVEN BETER THE NEXT MEAL WE HAD OUT OF IT. I WAS ACTUALLY ABLE TO MAKE 3 MEALS OUT OF IT. WE HAD CHIMICHANGAS WITH THE PORK, RICE, AND CHEESE FRIED WITH SOME SAUCE POURED ON TOP WITH QUESO FRESCO AND SOURCREAM SO AWESOME. THAN WE SAVED THE SAUCE SINCE WE USED ALL THE MEAT FOR THE CHIMIS AND THE SAUCE IS GREAT WITH EGGS IN A BURRITO WITH CHEESE.tHANKS
This was to die for! My husband loved it, my kids loved it, and so did I! I followed the recipe exactly, the meat was so tender, it melted in your mouth. There was a lot of sauce left over, so you could cut down the salsa verde by one can and it wouldn't make a difference.
Everyone loved this. I used Herdez green chile salsa and diced tomatoes with jalapenos. Very easy to make.
Made this for a potluck and it was delicious and very easy. Served it with sour cream and fresh cilantro to spoon in. Easy to adjust heat with less or more jalapenos. Next time will include some lime juice as one reviewer suggested, and cut back on jalapenos but add some roasted anaheim chilis. Very, very good.
Awesome! We all loved it! I used two 16oz bottles of salsa verde instead of 5 cans of green salsa, and italian style diced tomatoes. I will definitely make this recipe again. My hubby & I loved it, and my toddler-daughter who usually won't eat meat ate quite a bit of it. It was very easy to make and the pork was so tender! Thanks for posting this recipe.
