Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Pulled Pork

Products Used


  • Pork
  • 16 ounces prepared salsa verde (green salsa)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic (about 4 cloves)
  • 2 teaspoons Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar

  • For serving
  • Prepared rice or corn tortillas
  • Shredded cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Freshly chopped cilantro

      1. In a 4-quart or larger Crockpot, stir together salsa, chili powder, cumin, garlic, sugar and salt. Add pork and turn to coat, spooning some of the salsa over top. Cook, covered, until meat is cooked through and fork-tender, 6 hours on low or 4 hours on high.
      2. Remove meat to a large plate and shred with two forks. Return shredded pork to slow cooker and stir into cooking liquid. Serve over rice or with tortillas, topped with cheese and sour cream. Garnish with fresh cilantro and lime.
