This Salsa Verde Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork recipe is embarrassing me. You’ll soon find out why one of the best crockpot recipes for pork can be life changing.
I’d like to tell you that this juicy, spicy, and oh-so-saucy meal that prompted Ben to propose to me all over again was a product of careful flavor planning, spice grinding, mother saucing, and generally impressive, difficult-to-pronounce culinary technique. Sous vide! Flambé! Gratiné!
The truth, however, looks less Julia Child and more…
Why I Love This Easy Recipe
Yes friends. My secret to cooking the meal that earned the highest distinction of household praise—an urgent request that I make it every week—is a jar of store-bought green salsa. All together, this easy slow cooker pulled pork recipe is seven ingredients, two of which are sugar and salt, yet its flavor is rich, complex and addictive. Honestly, it’s so simple and the results are so fantastic, I’m starting to wonder why I make anything else.
Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe Directions
Are you ready to see how easy this 7 ingredient salsa verde pork recipe is to make? It’s the easiest crockpot recipe. EVER.
- Dump your salsa verde pulled pork ingredients into a crock pot
- Stir everything to combine
- Turn on the slow cooker
That’s it! In the slow cooker, the pork absorbs the flavor of the salsa and becomes fall-apart, melt-in-your-mouth tender. We tend to like food hot around here, so I picked a spicy jalapeno salsa, but choose whichever level of spice best suits your family’s taste.
I served this easy slow cooker pulled pork over brown rice with sour cream and avocado, but it would be equally delicious as filling for tacos or mixed up with black beans, Chipotle burrito bowl-style. Or go all out and serve it with Kristen’s easy Mexican Quinoa Salad or Deborah’s Mexican Corn Salad.
Though long afternoons spent lovingly preparing elaborate meals are special and have their place on occasion, for the days when time is too little and energy too faint, recipes like this are a treasure. Seven ingredients, three steps, marriage proposal-inducing results.
Put a ring on it.
