Ready in 45 minutes
Green chiles and tomatillos simmer with pork cubes for a classic Mexican stew.
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. Heat remaining tablespoon oil in pot. Add onion, saut 3-4 minutes, until soft, stir in garlic and saut one minute more. Add tomatillos, cumin, oregano, cinnamon and pork. Add beer and broth; bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer, partially covered, 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Add chiles and yellow pepper, simmer partially covered for 30-45 minutes more, until chiles are tender. Discard cinnamon stick. Stir in cilantro and orange zest.

robbgriffin 3y agoThis is a keeper. Forgot to buy beer so I just added more stock. Great with a side of cornbread. See my photo.
Tammylucas 3y agoExcellent recipe! Easy to make, too.
Doryfish 4y agoI've made this several times and every one loves it! Nice cobo of flavors, orange zest, cinnam..lots of flavors. I adds more meat because it's s little saucy but the flavor combo is fantastic! So many shuttle flavors
annmartinson 4y agothis is awesome! I used 16 oz water with 3 tablespoons powdered boullion instead of chicken broth and also 24 oz can of malt liquor for beer (could buy single). also skipped orange zest. My family loves hot-spicy. I usually have to tone it down. they didn't add any hot sauce to this and I was quite happy. it is 'green' spicy. Also the first night I served w/white rice. mistake. it is best on its own as a soup/stew. the second night it was terrific and I served with flour tortillas folded in half over melted cheese. delicious! also, I made this in the crockpot slow-cooker. browned everything first in a pan on the stove. loaded it up, cooked on high for 2 hours, then low. worked great. need to let it cook long enough to soften chiles well. Next time I think I'll add it all together and let it cook. I liked the peppers softer after the overnight-in-the-fridge.
RMSchade 6y agoTastes fantastic. I used lean pork chops instead and the meat just falls apart.
