Chili Verde (Green Chili) Recipe
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large heavy skillet. Salt and pepper the pork cubes and brown, stirring once or twice to turn, for about 5 minutes.
  • Set browned cubes aside, add 1 tablespoon oil to the browning pan, add onions to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 - 4 minutes. Add the garlic and stir in.
  • Add wine or water and stir to get any browned bits off the bottom of the pan.
  • Add oregano, chilies and tomatillos. Mix in and adjust heat to maintain a simmer. Cover and cook until pork is tender, about 30 minutes. Taste for seasoning.
  • Sprinkle cilantro over, if using. Serve with salsa, warm tortillas and/or beans or rice.
