Slow cooked pork in spicy fire roasted tomato sauce

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds boneless pork shoulder, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 2 tablespoons pork lard or oil
  • 1 medium white onion, sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cans (14.5 oz each) Hunt's® Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes, drained
  • 1 sprig epazote or parsley
  • 3 chiles de arbol, seeds removed
  • 12 corn tortillas (6 inch), warmed
  • pickled red onion and cilantro for garnish
 
Directions
  1. Pat the pork dry with a paper towel and sprinkle with salt. In a large (14-inch) skillet or the removable stovetop safe insert of your slow cooker, heat 2 tablespoons of lard or oil over medium high heat. Working in batches, brown the pork and transfer to a plate when finished, leaving behind as much fat as possible.
  2. In the same pan, add the onion and cook until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, then return pork to the pan. In a blender, combine chiles, tomatoes and a little salt and pulse a few times, blending to a coarse puree. Add the tomato mixture to the pan, stir and transfer to slow cooker. Nestle in the epazote. Cook on high for 4 hours. Taste and season with salt, usually about 2 teaspoons. Scoop into warm tortillas and garnish with pickled red onions and cilantro.
Cook's Tips

Quick pickled red onions: Cut a red onion in half and then slice it very thinly. Pour boiling water over the onion slices in a bowl. Drain well. Put onion into a glass bowl. Stir in the juice of 1 or 2 limes and a couple of pinches salt. Let stand, stirring often, about 30 minutes.
