Ingredients:

1-1½ pound boneless pork loin roast, trimmed
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
8 garlic cloves, minced
Cooking spray
2 cups chicken stock
½ cup water
12 6-inch corn tortillas
6 tablespoons light sour cream (optional)

Chimichurri Sauce:
2 garlic cloves
3 small shallots
½ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
¼ cup white wine vinegar
3 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Directions:

1. Rub pork with salt, pepper, and garlic. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add pork; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Transfer pork to a 5-quart round electric slow cooker coated with cooking spray. Add stock to pan, scraping to loosen browned bits; cook 2 minutes. Pour stock mixture over pork; add water. Cover and cook on LOW 8 hours or until tender.

2. Meanwhile, make Chimichurri sauce. With processor on, drop garlic through food chute; process until minced. Add shallots and remaining ingredients; pulse 8 times or until finely chopped, scraping sides as necessary.

3. Remove pork from slow cooker, and place in a medium bowl. Pour broth into a medium skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat; boil 5 minutes or until reduced to cup.

4. While broth reduces, shred pork using 2 forks. Stir in broth reduction.

5. Warm tortillas according to package directions.
