From Nutty Kitchen. You might try roasting the tomatillos and jalapeno under a broiler, to more evenly char them.

Recipe Ingredients for Chile Verde (Paleo)

2 1/2 lb pork shoulder roast, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 lbs tomatillos
2 cups chicken stock
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 yellow onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 c cilantro, chopped
1 T lime juice (Juice from 1 lime)
1 jalapeno pepper
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 Sea salt to taste

Recipe Directions for Chile Verde (Paleo)

Cut pork roast into ˝ inch cubes. Heat the coconut oil over medium high in a large soup pot and add the pork once the oil is hot enough that it sizzles when you add a piece of meat. Brown the pork pieces for 4-5 minutes and remove the pork from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add the onions and garlic to the oil and pork drippings and sauté for 7-10 min or until the onions start to brown. Turn the heat down a bit and add the cumin, paprika and black pepper to the onions and garlic and mix well (it will be kind of pasty). Add the chicken broth to the onion mixture and mix well, making sure to scrape all the goodness off the bottom of the pan. Add the pork back to the soup pot into the liquid and bring to a boil. Turn down to low. While the meat simmers, peel and wash the tomatillos. Dry them well and in a large skillet over medium heat char them along with the jalapeno turning often, until the skins start to blacken (about 10 minutes). Place the charred tomatillos, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime juice into a food processer or blender and blend until smooth. Add to the pork in the soup pot and simmer for 2 to 2 ˝ hours or until the pork is fall apart tender. The sauce will reduce down and become thicker over the course of the cooking process. Serve with sliced avocado and cilantro for garnish.
