Green Pork Chili. Server over rice.

Recipe Ingredients for Chili Verde

4 pounds pork shoulder, braised
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 yellow onions
2 green bell peppers
3 garlic cloves
1 1/2 pounds tomatillos
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons coriander
1 cup cilantro
4 cups chicken broth

Recipe Directions for Chili Verde

  1. Season the pork meat generously with salt and pepper, lightly flour. Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium high heat and brown pork chunks well in small batches, on all sides. Lift pork out of pan and place in a wide soup pot. Discard fat and place the onions and peppers in the same skillet and sweat over moderate heat, stirring occasionally until limp, about 5 minutes. Add all of the chiles and cook an additional 3-4 minutes, then add the garlic and cook 1-2 minutes more.

  2. Add the Sauteed vegetables, chopped tomatillos, dried herbs and cilantro to the meat, cover with the chicken stock and bring up to a boil and reduce to a slight simmer. Cook for 2-3 hours uncovered or until the pork is fork tender.

  3. Adjust the seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.
