Chile Verde

Chile Verde is a delicious dish I grew up eating. It is inexpensive to make and very tasty. You get a soft tender pork smothered in a delicious flavorful salsa verde. This can be made spicy if you want it to be, but low spice tastes just as good.


Ingredients:

1 1/2 to 2lbs of boneless pork meat of your choice

1/2 of a lb tomatillos

1/4 of an onion

2 to 3 Garlic cloves

1 Jalapeño

Juice of 1 lime

1/3 of cilantro bunch

2 tsp Oregano

1 tsp to 1 tbsp Chicken Bouillon *(season to taste, I would suggest 1 tsp at a time until the sodium is just right for you. 1 tbsp has been perfect for me, but I do have a heavy palate.) You can use chicken broth or stock and season with salt to taste. Just replace 1/2 cup of water for 1/2 cup of chicken broth.

1/2 cup of water


Cooking Instructions:

Add all of the salsa ingredients into a blender, and blend well. Season to your taste as explained in the Ingredients section.


In a pan over medium high heat, add some cooking oil and let come to temp. Once heated, add in the cubed up pork meat and season with a little bit of salt and normal seasoning of black pepper.


Cook on all sides and until the brownness you prefer. Add in the salsa and let the salsa come to temp. Place lid on pan and reduce heat to medium/low heat.


Cook for 30 to 45 mins until pork is fork tender.

Serve with some rice and beans, which I have these video recipes available if you want to know how.
