“An easy tomatillo and pork stew that is my boyfriend's favorite. Make it as spicy as you like by adding more or less jalapenos, or do not add any if you have a more tender palate.”

Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and brown the pork on all sides. Reserving the juices in the skillet, transfer the pork to a slow cooker.
  2. In the skillet with the pork juices over medium heat, saute the onion and garlic about 1 minute. Transfer to the slow cooker, along with skillet juices.
  3. Mix the tomatillos, green chile peppers, jalapeno peppers, and cilantro into the slow cooker. Season with oregano, salt, and pepper. Pour in 1 quart water, or enough to cover all ingredients. Cover, and cook on High for 6 to 7 hours.
  4. Shred the cooked pork with a fork. Spoon the slow cooker mixture into bowls, and top with Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, and fresh cilantro sprigs to serve.

Mmmm. So good. I simplified this recipe by substituting 2 jars of Herdez salsa verde for the tomatillos and chiles and doubled up on the garlic because I LOVE garlic. I also substituted Dos Equis beer for the water. This was killer. So delicious and so easy. It would make an excellent base for a green pork chilli if you wanted to add a couple of cans of white beans as well. Hominy would be a fun addition too. I will make this again and again. Mmmmmm. Also, a note, if you can acquire Mexican oregano, your tastebuds will thank you. It has an amazing earthy flavour that you just can't replicate with anything else.

TOP NOTCH! WHAT A TREAT! My husband brought home a cheap, fatty pork shoulder roast instead the pork tenderloin I had requested for a stir-fry I had planned to make. I smiled, and said "Thanks Sweetie", while I wondered what to do with such an awful-looking cut of meat. Not only was this recipe perfect for the fatty pork shoulder I had, it was so delicious and tender! The fat seemed to have melted into the dish as there was nothing to cut away. Mine was cooked in three hours (not six to seven as stated in the recipe). This may be because I halved the recipe and cut the roast in half to reduce the height of the roast so that it would be covered with half the amount of water. By chance, more of the surface area of the roast was browned this way as well. I used fresh tomatillos (not canned), and fresh chilies (not canned) and added the fresh cilantro half an hour before serving (not during the cooking time) to keep it fresh. I will definitely make this recipe again. UPDATE: IT LOST THE "WOW" FACTOR THE SECOND TIME I MADE IT. The second time I used pork tenderloin (not pork shoulder), made the full amount (not half) and had to cook it overnight when it wasn't done in 6 hours as I had to go to bed (half the amount took 3 hours last time). I would definitely use pork shoulder and BE CAREFUL not to over cook it even in a slow cooker. What I made this time is okay, but not especially delicious. The meat is dry, and the seasonings are "tired".

Fantastic! I used a 32oz. jar of tomatillo salsa to replace the tomatillos, onion, garlic, jalapeno and chiles. It had everything in it. I also replaced the water with chicken stock. During dinner my husband kept coming up with more ways we could use this pork. We ate it like soup, we had it wrapped in tortillas and next I will use it to make enchiladas! Yummy :)
