Easy Pork Chile Verde

Pork chile verde is a delicious dish made with tender cubes of pork, slow cooked in a delicious chile verde sauce. You can serve this dish with rice, or my favorite way is to serve with some corn tortillas, onion, cilantro and sour cream.

This recipe is a quicker version of chile verde using jarred salsa and enchilada sauce to make life easier and it is so delicious. You could also make this in the crock pot or instapot and it would come out great.

I used boneless pork loin roast here, but you can also use pork butt/shoulder. The chopped fresh cilantro and onion on top really adds some freshness and crunch to this dish so don’t skip those. You could also use flour tortillas to eat this if you prefer. I have a huge bag of masa so will be making corn tortillas for the next many months 🙂
