Tomatillo Pulled Pork Tacos


I love using the crockpot for shredded meats, it really is the easiest way ever to make tacos. Lately, I have been obsessed with tomatillos, they provide the perfect "tang" for TexMex dishes.  I used fresh tomatillos for this, but canned would work just as well if you aren't able to find them fresh.  To even further simplify things, you could easily use premade tomatillo salsa in place of the tomatillos, onion and jalapeno.  Miss F was a big fan of these tacos, especially since I served them in crunchy shells, which is a treat for her.
Tomatillo Pulled Pork Tacos

2 pound pork loin
6 tomatillos, husked and quartered
½ onion, chopped
½ jalapeno, chopped
2 cloves garlic, smashed
¾ cup chicken broth
½ lime
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper

Place the pork in the bottom of your crockpot. Layer the tomatillos, onions, jalapenos and garlic overtop of the pork. Pour the chicken broth into a 1 cup measure. Add the juice from half a lime, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper to the chicken broth; stir to combine. Pour the chicken broth over the pork in the crockpot. Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours. Remove the pork from the crockpot and shred with two forks. Return the shredded pork to the crockpot and cook for 30 minutes more. Serve with warm tortillas, sour cream, guacamole, cheese and tomatoes.
