Although I am Italian, our good friend Olga is Mexican and has given me some great ideas. This is one of them.

I absolutely love this! I didn't exactly follow the directions. I left out the bell pepper and used a white onion instead of green. I assumed when the Chef says "green enchilada sauce" the second time (16 oz) he means the Herdz salsa verde, so that is what i used. I browned the pork and onions in the olive oil and then just dumped in the rest of the ingredients and simmered for about 4 hours. Delicious over rice, or to smother burritos. The flavor is authentic as far as I am concerned!
