I’m always looking for good crockpot recipes. I threw this in the crock one morning before we left for the day. Unfortunately I didn’t get to taste it that night, but the husband did. He said it was good and spicy. I tried it a few days later reheated. It was ok but probably tasted better fresh. I served it over jasmine rice.
Slow Cooker Pork and Green Chile Stew
2 lbs boneless pork loin roast, lean, all fat trimmed off
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
3/4 cup diced onion
2 cans (4.25 oz each) whole green chiles, sliced into thick rounds
2 chopped jalapeño
10 oz can diced tomatoes and green chilies (Ro*Tel Mild)
1/2 cup fat-free low-sodium chicken broth
1 tbsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
Cut pork into 2-inch pieces. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat a large non-stick skillet on high heat; when hot lightly spray the pan with oil and brown the pork over medium heat on all sides, about 3 – 4 minutes total. Sprinkle 1 tbsp of flour over pork and stir to cook 30 seconds, sprinkle remaining flour over pork and cook an additional 30 seconds.
Add browned pork to the crock pot, along with the remaining ingredients.
Cook on LOW for 8 hours or HIGH for 4 houts (if using a Dutch oven, cook on low heat for 3-4 hours). When done, adjust season, salt and pepper to taste if needed.
