Any meat that is overcooked, even if it's cooked in liquid, will be dry.

And leaner meats dry out faster.

Lean meats like chicken breasts and boneless pork chops don;t do well in crockpots.

Love on a Bun

Well, you could make a porketta. Butterfly and debone a 3 to 5 lb. pork shoulder. Mix 6 cloves of garlic, 2 Tbls salt, 2 Tbls black pepper, 1/4 c olive oil and 1/4 cup fennel seeds in a food processor. Spread the resulting paste inside the roast, tie and spread the rest on the outside of the roast. Put it in the crock on high for one hour and low for 6 more. Drain juices and untie, then pull and put on a bun. Enjoy. I've gotten many kisses and marriage proposals because of this recipe.

Make Pork Chile Verde. Cook it in the crockpot instead of on the stovetop, on low for about 8 hours. You can use this to make tacos, enchiladad, quesadillas, etc. HTH.

GG, your link went to something else on Food Network (weird!).

But I love chile verde (I usually use chicken) so I looked up other Food TV recipes. This one looks great! Recipes : Pork Chile Verde : Food Network

Was it the one you wanted to post, too?
