  • Summary

    This is a very versatile dish; it can be cooked in advance, in the oven or in a slow cooker. If you use a slow cooker, brown pork on stovetop first then transfer to slow cooker with the onion-pepper puree and seasonings. Allow 8-10 hours cook time, until pork is tender and falling apart.

    Ingredients

    • 6 tomatillos, husked and quartered
    • 3 jalapenos, split lengthwise, seeds and ribs removed if you don't want a lot of heat
    • 2 cups chicken stock, plus more if needed
    • 3 tablespoons grape seed oil
    • 1 pork shoulder, picnic or fresh ham 3-5 lbs (depending how many you want to feed or how much you want to have left over)
