This recipe was inspired by our good friends at Real Simple. The shredded pork comes out moist and tangy and is great served over beans and rice. It does take some time for it to cook, so plan accordingly.
Here's what you need and how you do it
1 pork tenderloin, any size
1 bottle salsa verde (i.e. green)
1 medium onion, finely chopped
3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons cumin seeds
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
In dutch oven, combine pork, salsa, onion, broth and spices. Boil over high heat for a few minutes. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until meat is very tender (2-3 hours) (Alternately, you can put the pork in a slow cooker on low for a while, then transfer it to a dutch oven and add the salsa, onion, broth and spices. We did this when we were gone for the afternoon.).
Remove tenderloin from pot and, using two forks, shred. Return to pot and heat through, mixing with salsa. Add cilantro and salt, if needed.
Serve with tortillas or, as mentioned above, beans and rice.
