Pork Verde with Poblanos

Pork Verde Poblanos

Ok, so I haven’t posted in a very, very long time & since then the Instant Pot has come into fashion. Fine. I’m on board & have a new rule for myself: keep the posts to the point,  up the photo quality, & try to post at least once a month.


  • 2lbs or so of pork (loin or butt) cut into 1″ cubes (or you can put large chunk of pork in & shred)
  • 1 16oz jar of salsa verde
  • 2 roasted poblano peppers – dice up after roasting
  • several liberal grinds of pepper
  • 1tblsp cilantro (I like to use Gourmet Garden paste in tube)


  1. Pour enough salsa verde in to coat bottom of the pot
  2. Add the cubed pork
  3. Put diced poblanos on top of pork
  4. Grind on the pepper
  5. Add the cilantro
  6. Stir it up
  7. Select Manual setting & set to 90 mins
  8. When pot beeps allow to manually release for 10-20 mins

The pork verde may or may not have a lot of liquid, up to you how you use the dish on keeping liquid (such as, served over rice it nice to have a couple spoonfuls of liquid to pour over).

My fav ways to eat this:

  • Just eat out of pot (or bowl if your not an animal) with tortilla chips
  • Over rice
  • Add to a “dang quesadilla”
  • In scrambled eggs

This is pretty versatile, so go loco.
