Easy La Victoria Chile Verde

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Julesong

I love chile verde, and I've been impressed by this, the easiest and tastiest recipe I've found. Yes, it cheats a bit by using sauce from a jar (hmmph, you might say!), but sometimes you can achieve really good results from shortcuts. :) This is the recipe I use most often for Chile Verde. Delicious, and folks ask for the recipe.

This was fairly easy to make and very tasty! I think some cuts of pork could be simmered longer to get more tender. This would be a great one for the crockpot! I used Las Palmas sauce which is similar to La Victoria, but one of my preference. I also added finely diced jalapenos to punch up the heat for those who wanted it; I didn't cook those in, as some here like it less so. Thanks for the recipe, Julesong!
