A new recipe – Shredded Pork

I noticed that it has been a long time since I posted a recipe. I generally make it when pork is on sale but it will work with beef or chicken. Don’t fret the large quantity this makes because it freezes well.

Country style pork ribs 3 lbs
(it doesn’t matter whether they are boneless or not and feel free to use more or less than this amount)
Prepared pico de gallo or fresh salsa, one 16 oz container

Yes, you read it right, you only need 2 ingredients. You can complicate this by chopping onion, garlic, tomatoes and cilantro yourself but the pico de gallo in your grocery’s produce section already has those in it.

Place pork in the bottom of the crockpot, pico de gallo on top, cook for at least 8 hours. Remove bones and shred the chunks with two forks before serving.

You can cook it a day ahead of time, refrigerate the cooker and skim the fat if you are into that sort of thing. I serve it hot and as is.

For a party, you could serve it with rice or tortillas and melt grated cheese on top or just serve it in bowls with salad and bread or chips.

Bon appetit!
