Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Pork
A long time ago (3.5 years ago to be exact) I was pregnant with my first child. You currently know her as Indigo. When you're with child you often crave certain things through out your pregnancy. Don't get me wrong you get sporadic cravings, but you might notice a pattern with certain things.
My top 3 things with little sweet Indigo were:
1. Vanilla Milkshakes from Coldstone
2. Peanut Butter on Toasted Cinnamon Raisin Bagels
3. Pancakes with butter and syrup
As you can tell, I might have had the sweet tooth with her, now on to this current baby. I happen to be 3.5 years older and maybe 3.5 inches wider..hehe. I have to list out the things that a "boy" child is making me crave.
1. Burgers smothered in cheese and mushrooms
2. Shredded Pork Sandwiches
3. Burgers & Shredded Pork sandwiches
4. Eggs fried on top of things like Burgers and Shredded Pork Sandwiches
Now you can see why I need to get the P90X part deux for Christmas...hint hint...Husband....Are you listening????
So lets see little girls make me crave sweets and this darn male child has me consuming cows and pigs like it's my job! Not only does he make me eat a cow and pig per week he likes it if I smother it in cheese,eggs, and sauces...dude...and very sorry to the vegetarians out there.
Next things I know this kid will have me playing golf, changing my cars oil, or spitting on the sidewalk.
Now go make this easy peasy pork, probably a welcome change from regular holiday fare.
Delightfully borrowed from a friend
1 pork roast 3-5 lbs
1 large jar Salsa Verde
*after a few days of tostadas I poured in some BBQ sauce for a BBQ pork Sandwiches*
Pour half your salsa verde into your crock pot. Set your pork roast in the slow cooker and place the other half of the salsa verde on top of it. Set on low for 8 hours (flip once while cooking). Remove from slow cooker and shred. You can add a little of the juice if you like after shredding.
Now assemble to your hearts content...and it goes a little sumthin like this..
Tostada, pork, salsa, cheese, maters, cheese, cheese, eat. WORD
