This is my take on Pork Chili Verde. I’ve wanted to do this for some time now. (This is a combination of a couple of recipes I got off of YouTube)
First off I know real Chili Verde doesn’t have beans in it but my wife likes and wanted them so I don’t want to hear it. Secondly, I don’t know how to make a video yet so I’ll let my pics do the talking.
I forgot to soak my pinto beans overnight so I had to boiled 1 lb. on my grill for 1 hour and then let them soak for 2 hours.
Smeared some shorting on my new 9 quart Dutch oven.
And on the grill.
I added 1 ½ lbs. of trimmed pork shoulder to brown.
Took that out and added another 1 ½ lbs. to brown.
Then took 10 tomatillos and 3 heads of garlic and placed them on the grill to roast.
Chopped 1 ½ medium yellow onion, 1 tablespoon chili powder, 1 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. Mexican oregano & 1 tsp. rosemary flakes.
In go the onions
And stir in the browned pork and let cook 5 min.
Tomatillos and garlic are done (On 5 to 6 min and tomatillos go into a blender)
Pour in 1 Karl Strauss Red Trolley Ale and let cook 5 min.
In go the chili powder, cumin, Mexican oregano & rosemary flakes.
And after 5 min it looks like this.
Chop 1 jalapeno and 6 of the largest cloves of garlic. (The rest gets chopped up and put in the blender with the tomatillos)
In they go and you guessed it, let cook for another 5 min.
And it looks like this
Add 2 cups chicken stock
And the beans.
Cover and let cook for 2 hours stirring every 10 to 15 min.
After ½ hour
After 1 hour (Had to add another 2 cups of chicken stock)
After 1 ½ hours
At this point I add the tomatillos, 1 head of roasted garlic, 2 chopped jalapenos, and 1 bunch of chopped cilantro (which have been blended) and stir.
After 2 hours. (See the meat falling apart? It’s done)
Add 1 bunch of chopped cilantro, turn off the heat and stir one last time.
Heat up some tortillas
And serve it up.
Now that was some fine eating! Fue muy delicioso!
