MMMM-MMMM good. Great served cubed and ladled over rice, pulled as a sandwich or any other creative way you can think of. The flavor is pure Tex-Mex.

You won't be sorry you tried this recipe.

Cook:

8 Hr

Method:

Slow Cooker Crock Pot

Ingredients

2 to 3 lb
pork tenderloin roast
5 or 6 medium
tomatillos, fresh
1 medium
red onion
5 or 6 clove
garlic
2 or 3 medium
hatch chile pepper (or your choice)
1 Tbsp
sea salt
1 Tbsp
ground black pepper
1 tsp
smoked paprika (optional)

SAUCE INGREDIENTS

8 oz
medium to hot salsa
1 can(s)
(14-16 ounces) fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 or 2 tsp
ground cumin

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut small slits in roast.

Mix salt, pepper and paprika together in a small bowl.

Firmly rub salt mixture into roast, making sure you rub a goodly amount into the slits.

Set aside
2
Remove husks from tomatillos and discard them. Wash the tomatillos thoroughly to remove the sticky residue.

Wash the chiles and set aside with tomatillos

Cut the tomatillos in half and set aside.

TO FIRE ROAST CHILES AND TOMATILLOS:

Option #1 - If you have a gas stove or smoker, you can place the tomatillos and chiles over the open fire to roast.

Option #2 - Place tomatillos and chiles on baking sheet and place under oven broiler for just long enough for them to blacken (about 2 minutes per side).

Remove and place in paper bag and close it. Leave in bag for about 5 minutes, then remove. The blackened skins will then be easy to remove. For milder sauce, remove seeds from chiles; for more robust flavor leave them in.
4
Finely mince garlic cloves.

Finely dice tomatillos and chiles (if you let them get too soft, you can just make a paste out of them).

Thinly slice onion
5
TO MAKE SAUCE:

In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, place canned tomatoes, salsa, cumin and half of diced garlic.

Heat for about 5 minutes until steaming but not boiling, remove from heat.

Stir in tomatillos and chiles.
6
ASSEMBLE FOR COOKING:

Layer the bottom of slow cooker with sliced onion, and remaining half of garlic.

Place the prepped tenderloin on top of the vegetables.

Pour the sauce over the top of roast and vegetables.

Cook on low power for 6 to 8 hours until pork is tender and falling apart.
