- 1 Stir together 1 teaspoon chile powder, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon coriander, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in cup; rub pork all over with spice mixture.
- 2 Spray large skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium- high heat. Add half of pork and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer to 5- or 6-quart slow cooker. Repeat with remaining pork, spraying skillet again with nonstick spray.
- 3 Reduce heat to medium and add oil to same skillet. Add onion and bell pepper; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, oregano, remaining 2 teaspoons chile powder, remaining 1 teaspoon cumin, and remaining 1 teaspoon coriander. Cook, stirring, just until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add broth and bring to boil, stirring to scrape up browned bits from bottom of pan.
