You will be amazed at how easy it is to make this delicious pulled pork using the crockpot. Just put a few ingredients in the crockpot in the morning and you will have delicious mexican pork ready to be pulled for your for dinner.
The spicy verde pulled pork is easy to turn up the heat on. Just add a jalapeno or two to the crock pot when cooking or top your pulled pork tacos with some fresh and spicy pico de gallo such as Foodiecrushes yummy recipe below.
The secret to this easy Spicy Verde Pulled Pork is using my Green Tomato Salsa Verde as your base ingredient for your cooking sauce. You can make a batch of this salsa easily in one pot, then can or freeze to use with your Mexican recipes or as a salsa with chips. If you don’t have time to make your own, then I suggest using a store bought salsa verde, just add a few pinches of sugar to the recipe when you are cooking.
I like to separate the pork’s grease after cooking from the sauce. I have found a really easy way to do this is with a OXO Good Grips 4-cup Fat Separator. I use this little kitchen gadget every time before I make gravy. It helps me serve a much healthier gravy and sauce to my family be removing excess fat.
