Salsa Verde Pork

I’m a big fan of easy meals.  The easier the better.  And if I don’t have to babysit it on the stove it’s a win-win for me.  Which is why I use my crockpot a lot, especially during the school year when I’m running around like a chicken with my head cut off.  I’ve worked from home for almost 11 years.  Between that and running 2 kids here and there, my crockpot has been a lifesaver.  So I recently figured out if you dump a jar of salsa on top of some sort of meat, and cook low and slow all day long, it turns out fantastic!   I made this salsa verde pork the other day because I had a jar of green salsa and a pork loin.  Added some sliced onions and voila!  You can shred it and serve it as chili or put it in a tortilla and make a taco or burrito.  The possibilities are endless. Ridiculously easy and delicious!

Lay sliced onions in bottom of crockpot.  Add pork loin on top.  Pour jar of green salsa on top (or any other color, it just wouldn’t be salsa verde pork, then it would just be salsa pork…ha ha).

Cook on low for 6 hours.  Shred and add a can of corn and a can of black beans.  Cook for another 30-45 minutes.
