Chile Verde de Puerco

Chile Verde de Puero

Green chiles and tomatillos simmer with pork cubes for a classic Mexican stew. This deeply-flavored chile stew is typically served over potatoes or rice. Accompany with warm corn or flour tortillas and plenty of cold beer.



  1. Season pork with salt and pepper; dust with flour. Heat 4 tablespoons oil in Dutch oven, brown pork in batches, transferring pork to bowl when browned.
  2. Heat remaining tablespoon oil in pot. Add onion, sauté 3-4 minutes, until soft, stir in garlic and sauté one minute more.
  3. Add tomatillos, cumin, oregano, cinnamon and pork.
  4. Add beer and broth; bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer, partially covered, 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add chiles and yellow pepper, simmer partially covered for 30-45 minutes more, until chiles are tender.
  6. Discard cinnamon stick. Stir in cilantro and orange zest.
