Andy's Spicy Green Chile Pork

From Allrecipes

1 white onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
2 1/2 pounds pork shoulder roast
1 (16 ounce) jar green salsa
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 Serrano chile peppers, or to taste (I used some banana peppers from my garden)

1.  Layer the chopped onion into the bottom of a slow cooker.  Season the pork shoulder with salt and pepper; place atop the chopped onion.  Pour the green salsa over the pork.  Sprinkle the cilantro over the salsa and pork.  Drop the Serrano chile peppers into the slow cooker.
2.  Cook on low until the meal falls apart easily, about 8 hours.  Gently remove the pork to a cutting board.  Strain and discard about half the remaining liquid from the slow cooker, reserving the rest.  Discard the onions, peppers, and cilantro if desired.
3.  Shred the pork shoulder with a pair of forks.  Mix the pork with the reserved liquid from the slow cooker to serve.

*This was tasty and simple.  A good one to add to the rotation.
