Slow Cooker Chile Verde

1 jar (16 oz) La Victoria thick ‘n chunky salsa verde (other brands would work, but this is my favorite)
1 pork roast 2 pounds
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 can pinto beans rinsed and drained

Place your pork roast in the bottom of the slow cooker and sprinkle the dry seasonings over it. Dump the entire jar of salsa over the roast, adding a little water if necessary to the jar to get all of it out.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-5 hours. Roast should pull apart easily when it’s done. Shred the pork and put back in the salsa and juices. Add the pinto beans to the crockpot for the last half hour of cooking. Serve over rice and top with cheese, sour cream, and cilantro, or serve in tortillas.
