    Bobbie's Note:

    This recipe appeared in the October 2007 issue of Cooking Light. I haven't tried it yet -- but hope to real soon. (Fresh tomatillos come in papery husks, which peel off easily to reveal what looks like small green tomatoes. They have a tart lemony flavor and must be cooked before eating. A brief stewing will mellow the flavor but leave some of the characteristic tang.)

      I saw this recipe in the OAMC pork mini-session and it looked liked it would make a great entree. It didn't disappoint; the flavor was spicy and the pork was still tender after reheating. I did add a cornstarch slurry to thicken up the juices a bit and we used rustic bread to dip into it. I think rice would also be good with this to sop up all the delicious juices. One note: the spicy heat was just right for me; if you are cooking for someone who doesn't like really spicy food then you might want to cut back on the chile powder and jalapeno. I kept this in my freezer for two months and it still tasted good and fresh when re-heated!
