Verde Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Brad Webb


A slightly different take on the standard "crockpot pulled pork", which I find far too sweet. Heat balanced by fat balanced by a background of smoky cinnamon will be a hit at your next get together, or just keeping the family warm in the winter!

How to Make Verde Slow Cooker Pulled Pork


  1. Place roast in large slow-cooker, fat side up.
  2. Mix seasoning packet and other spices in a small bowl and rub into roast. Let sit until up to temperature.
  3. Mix enchilada sauce, soups and chile together in a bowl.
  4. Pour wet ingredients over top of the roast until covered, pour remainder into sides.
  5. Cover and cook on Low 10-12 hours, or High 6-8 hours (until the bone comes free and clean out of roast). Longer the better!
  6. Remove bone and use 2 large forks (or shredding claws) to pull roast apart into serving-ready sizes.
  7. Mix meat and sauce together to combine; cover and cook another 0.5-1 hour.
  8. For thicker outcome (e.g. for burritos), ladle out 2-3 cups of the liquid, do not cover after combining and cook on high for another 1-2 hours until thickness is achieved.
