Salsa Garcia: Pork Chile Verde

Print Recipe
Salsa Garcia


Prepared in a slow cooker, this pork comes out super succulent. Enjoy it with flour or corn tortillas and your favorite toppings. It’s perfect for burritos, too!

Serves: 6
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 9 hr


3 lb pork shoulder, trimmed and cubed
¼ c all-purpose flour
2 T olive oil, approx.
1 large onion, sliced
1 c Salsa Garcia Salsa Verde
1½ t salt
½ t black pepper
1 t oregano
2 c chicken broth


Trim the pork fat and cut pork into 1-inch cubes.

On a baking sheet or in a Ziplock bag, coat the pork with flour. Add oil to the bottom of a large skillet. When the pan and oil are hot, brown the flour-coated pork on all sides in a single layer, approx. 3 to 5 min (you may need to do this in batches).

To the slow cooker, add the pork, onion, Salsa Garcia Salsa Verde, salt, pepper, oregano and chicken broth, then stir to combine.

Cover and cook on low for 9 hours in a slow cooker or 2 hours in an Instant Pot.

Serve with Spanish rice and beans and warmed tortillas. Top with cheese, sour cream and diced onions, if desired.
