This is a crockpot recipe that will rock your world, just ask anyone that has dinner with us on Pork Green Chili night.  I got this recipe from my MIL many, many years ago, even BEFORE I was married to Hubby and before I had MAD cooking skills!  ;)  If I could make this way back when I was just learning to cook, even my sister Kathie will be able to make it now. 
Here's what you need:
3-4 pounds fresh pork loin steaks (or any kind of pork really)
2 TBL vegetable oil
2 one pound cans stewed tomatoes
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
3-5 fresh roasted green chilies, skins off and diced
***If you cannot find fresh roasted green chilies, you can roast them yourself, or buy 2 cans (which I have been known to do on occasion) of diced green chilies
2-3 fresh jalapenos, diced (deseed if you don't want all the heat)
2-3 garlic gloves, minced
crushed red pepper to taste

Cut pork into bit size pieces, in frying pan heat 2 tbl oil, toss in pork, cook till almost done (just a few minutes). Put everything into the crockpot, cook on medium heat all day. (8 hours, give or take)

Now for the fun stuff....what I like to put the green chili on!  Typically we make smothered burritos, but  you can also do smothered tamales, smothered eggs for breakfast, or just dip flour tortillas in the green chili.  Whatever you choose to do with it will be wonderful, I'm sure.   

When making smothered burritos, I put refried beans on a flour tortilla, add some green chili, wrap it up
(Burrito, also shown with a tamale)
Pour more green chili over the burrito...
Add any toppings you would like...cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole, black olives, the options are endless.  Serve with chips on the side.  OK, now my mouth is watering I need pork green chili now!!
