Classic Chile Verde Recipe
A fantastic chile verde recipe.
1 1/2 lb pork shoulder - cubed
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp butter
1 large onion minced or diced (or 1/2 cup dried onion flakes)
4 clove garlic - minced
1 jar(s) la victoria salsa verde (16 oz)
1/2 c water or chicken broth (preferred) or mexican beer
Cut pork into 1/2-inch cubes; season cubes with salt and pepper.
In a large, heavy pan with lid, brown the cubes well in oil and melted butter. If your pork is already cooked - just add it here and skip to step 3
Add the onion and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes, then drain the fat from the pan.
Add the remaining ingredients, cover, and simmer for at least 90 minutes, stirring frequently; add more water (or broth or beer) during cooking if necessary to achieve desired sauce texture.
