  • 1 Tbs. canola oil
  • 2 lbs. pork (tenderloin or shoulder), trimmed and cut into large chunks
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 large yellow onion, cut into large dice
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded, ribs removed, and diced
  • 16 oz. jar good quality salsa verde *I used Herdez brand
  • Tortillas and taco toppings, for serving

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season pork with salt and pepper and add to pan. Sear pork on all sides until browned and add to a slow cooker. Add onion, peppers, and salsa to the slow cooker and cook on low, stirring occasionally, for 8 hours.

Remove pork from slow cooker and shred with forks. Add back to the slow cooker and combine with the remaining sauce. Keep warm until ready to serve in tortillas with your favorite taco toppings.
