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!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Make Sauce a day ahead and refrigerate until ready for use
2
Put all sauce ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth.

Rub 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.
