Mexican Pulled Pork with a Green Chili Sauce (PC)

Millie Johnson


This recipe is so easy and I'm telling ya, EVERYBODY loves it ! I am constantly asked for the recipe, so I had to post it.
This recipe is done in a pressure cooker, but it can be done stove top in a pot, cooking low and slow for 3 hours. (or put it in a crock pot for that matter !)
Great to eat as a roast or to pull the pork and make tacos, tamales, enchiladas or stuffed in arepas (my fave). I like to serve it with my cheesy chorizo potatoes *recipe posted, beans and Spanish rice. Yummy in your tummy !
PS: This dish has no heat as green chili enchilada sauce is very mild
