Origin of the Mexican Crockpot Pork Loin Recipe

Briefly, let me tell you how I came up with this recipe.

For years I’ve made a crockpot shredded pork or beef using my own homemade salsa recipe.

Of course we loved it and I served it often.

However, I do like to play around in the kitchen.

One morning as I was getting ready to dump in my ingredients for my shredded pork, I thought I’d try a tomatillo salsa verde instead of my homemade salsa. 

Well, Steph happened to come over as it was finishing up and wanted to know what I was cooking. She said, the aroma was absolutely delicious!

She had a taste and wanted to know if I had written down what I had done, because it was a “keeper”.

It has now become a family favorite!

The great thing is that I usually have all of the ingredients on hand.

So if it’s a last minute decision to make it, I generally have everything I need.

Another family favorite recipe we love around the holidays is our homemade meatball appetizer with a sweet and tangy cranberry sauce and stuffed mushroom recipe.

What You’ll Need for Salsa Verde Crockpot Pork Loin Recipe

Simple ingredients make this a quick and easy meal, pork loin, diced onion, salsa verde and spices.
Simple ingredients make this a quick and easy meal.

I generally use a boneless pork loin. This cut of meat goes on sale regularly at my grocery store and I keep it stocked in my deep-freezer.

The seasonings I use are pink Himalayan salt, garlic powder, chili powder and chipotle chili powder.

In addition, I add a diced onion over the pork. This not only adds flavor, but it also adds moisture. You’ll notice that the only liquid I add is the salsa.

Finally, I top everything with a tomatillo salsa verde. I’ve tried several different brands, and my favorite by far is Kroger’s Tomatillo Salsa Verde.

Place Ingredients in Slow Cooker

All the ingredients are placed in the slow cooker and then let it cook on a low setting for 6-8 hours.

Once the meat has basically cooked all day, you simply need to shred the meat with 2 forks.

For ease in clean-up Steph and I love to use slow cooker bags. They make clean-up a breeze.
