Pork Loin Wrapped in Flour Tortillas with a Tomatillo Sauce

A simple and inexpensive dish served elegantly or serve informally for other occasions. If you have left pork try Pulled Pork Sandwiches.  Serves a crowd.

Ingredients

Pork
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 – 4 lb. pork loin
2 onions chopped into large pieces
1 teaspoon of kosher salt
1 teaspoon of fresh cracked black pepper
1 bottle of beer – your choice
1 jar of tomatillo sauce – it can have green chilies but make sure the main ingredient is the tomatillo
For Serving
Flour tortillas
Sour cream
Chili threads to add contrast for presentation and a little
extra flavor (optional)

Technique

In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium high heat. Season pork with salt and pepper and sear pork on both sides until light brown.  Make sure the skillet is hot before adding pork or you will not get the sear you are looking for.  Remove pork loin and place in a slow cooker. Add onions to skillet and sauté until translucent. Add half of the beer to the pan to deglaze. Once deglazed, pour into the slow cooker with the pork. Add the tomatillo sauce and the remaining beer. Cover and cook on high for 5 hours. Once meat is falling apart try to break into smaller pieces. Take a flour tortilla fill with pork. Roll and place on plate. Ladle some of the wonderful juice from the slow cooker onto the plate and garnish with the sour cream and the chili threads.
