Shredded pork on red chile sauce is perfect for eating with rice and refried beans and also for yummy tacos. For this recipe I am using a new product that I got as a gift from Jay Hill, owner and farmer at Hill Farms New Mexico.

I had the chance to meet him at the Farm To Plate event I attended few weeks ago here in Orlando where I also met other wonderful farmers that were attending the Farmers Bureau Convention at the Orange County Convention Center. I actually had the honor to participate in a consumer panel at that convention where got the chance to give my perspective on food and the importance to meet and ask the farmer about the food we eat.

But going back to the recipe this red chile sauce is succulent, made with red chiles that are harvested at the peak of season in New Mexico. When you open the jar the smell of the sauce is incredibly fresh and with hints of smokiness since the chiles are roasted prior being pureed.

Notes

The shredded pork on red chile sauce can be cooked on the slow cooker but for this I used my pressure cooker, a cooking technique that is part of my heritage and how my grandmother and great grandmother were used to cook at home.

Typically this sauce is used for enchiladas however in my opinion is great for cooking stews and shredded meat, like beef, pork and even chicken. That is why I decided to buy a nice pork butt, which by the way isn’t the rear of the pork. This cut is from the upper part of the shoulder right above the front leg. This pork cut is perfect for pulled pork, a staple of barbecue in the south of the United States.

I decided to use this traditional pork cut combined with The Fresh Chile Co Red Chile Sauce to make a Mexican favorite: A Shredded Pork on Red Chile Sauce. Delicious dish for tacos to feed a big crowd. Nothing like tacos de canasta to enjoy at home while watching the games.

The pressure cooker does a very good job tenderizing the meat and adding a delicious depth of flavor to the dish infusing the red chile sauce into the meat to make it a really special bite.

I invite you to try this recipe for shredded pork on red chile sauce, which in my opinion is a true farm to plate experience since I am using this fabulous fresh red chile sauce coming from a friend’s farm in New Mexico and high quality pork meat from hogs raised and taken care here in the United States by family owned farms in South Dakota.

If you have the chance to meet your local farmers please do, you will gain a friend for life while you learn from where the food you eat comes from.

Bon Appetit!
