Serve this with tortillas, or over brown rice with a little light sour cream and a slice of avocado if you wish and you’ll have a delicious meal. More pork crock pot recipes you might enjoy are Italian Pulled Pork Ragu, Sazon Pork Chops, and  Pork and Gandules.

This recipe is really so versatile – you can add more broth if you want more liquid, you can also add tomatillos, cilantro, and make it your own. For speed and convenience, I used canned green chiles and jalapeno but you can use fresh and roast your own. This has a little bit of kick, but you can certainly turn it up by adding more jalapeños or chile powder.

I bought a boneless loin roast and trimmed quite a bit of the fat off before cooking it. So keep in mind that you’ll lose some meat.  I like to brown the meat before adding it to the crock pot. For best results, I add a little flour while it browns to thicken it a bit, before adding it to the crock pot. If you have gluten allergies, you can skip this step. If you don’t have time to brown your meat no worries, it will still work out fine. Enjoy!

And since so many are asking, although I have and love my Instant Pot, I still love my slow cooker! I have the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker (affil link). I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I hated my old crock pot, it burnt everything and my food had a weird taste. This slow cooker is so great, I actually own several!
