Tender pork slow cooked with the perfect blend of Mexican spices and salsa verde. This is a family favorite, serve with beans and Spanish rice and you have a complete Mexican fiesta.

  • Servings: 8
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 6 hours
  • Total Time: 6 hours 10 min


3 lbs Boneless Pork Shoulder Cut Into Chunks
2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
2 tsp Garlic Powder
2 tsp Onion Powder
½ tsp Onion Salt
½ tsp Garlic Salt
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Oregano, mexican if you can find it
½ tsp Dried Cilantro
½ tsp Ground Cumin
½ tsp Ground Red Pepper
½ tsp Minced Onion Flakes, or fresh onion
1 tsp Minced Dried Garlic
1 cup Water
2 Tbsp Beef Bouillon
16 oz Salsa Verde


Mix all seasonings together in small bowl (except Salsa Verde).

Mix Beef Boulion with water and pour in crock pot first. Rub meat with seasoning, place in crock pot, (for best results, I rub meat with seasoning the night before, let it sit in refrigerator to marinate). Cover and set on 6-8 hours. (Usually cooked within 6 hours).

One hour before serving, drain pork drippings out leaving about 1/2 cup with meat. Pour Salsa Verde on top and stir to break up meat. Continue to cook 45 minutes.

Just before serving I add a cornstarch slurry to thicken it up. (1 tbsp cornstarch, 1 tbsp water). Serve with Spanish rice and beans and enjoy!
