Slow Cooker Pork and Green Chile Stew

Chunks of lean pork, slow cooked in the crock pot with tomatoes, green chiles and jalapeño for a delicious weeknight meal with a little bit of heat!

Serve this with tortillas, or over brown rice with a little light sour cream and a slice of avocado if you wish and you’ll have a delicious meal.

This recipe is really so versatile – you can add more broth if you
want more liquid, you can also add tomatillos, cilantro, and make it
your own. For speed and convenience I used canned green chiles and
jalapeno, but you can certainly use fresh and roast your own. This has a little bit of kick, but you can certainly turn it up by adding more jalapeños or chile powder.

I bought a boneless loin roast and trimmed quite a bit of the fat off before cooking, so keep it in mind that you’ll lose some meat.  I
like to brown the meat before adding it to the crock pot for best
results and add a little flour to pork as it browns
before adding it to the crock pot so that it thickens a bit. If you have gluten allergies, you can
skip this step. If you don’t have time to brown your meat no worries, it
will still work out fine. Enjoy!
