I use a pork loin instead of a butt for a leaner healthier version of Chili Verde

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Raise your hand if you love tomatillos! With a slightly sour zing, they add a wonderful punch to this already terrific recipe. Way to go, Lou!

Ingredients

PORK

5 lb
pork loin roast
1/4 c
bourbon
2 tsp
liquid smoke
8-10 clove
garlic
1/4 c
water
1 tsp
salt

VERDE SAUCE

20
tomatillo
1
yellow onion-large
7-8 clove

4
jalapeño peppers

Step-By-Step

1Make Sauce a day ahead and refrigerate until ready for use
2Put all sauce ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth.
3Rub Pork with salt, add next 4 ingredients and place in crock pot for 6-8 hours. I have a hi-lo setting on my crockpot that automatically kicks from hi to lo after 2 hours. If yours does not just use lo for the full 8 hours.
4When pork is cooked remove from crock pot and shred, dump all fat and liquid from crock pot and return shredded pork.
5Pour raw Sauce in crock pot and cook on high for 2-3 more hours.
6Serve with tortilla’s and any sides you choose.
