Fay's Green Chile Stew (Chile Verde)

Fay's Green Chile Stew  (Chile Verde) created by ChefLee

This is a recipe that I got from a Mexican cookbook but the name escapes me. I do know that I have made it for many years and it only gets better. It doubles and triples and freezes well. Chunks of pork, green chilies, mixed together with onions and savory seasonings will have you going for seconds!

ingredients

directions

  • Trim off any fat and cut pork into 1" size cubes.
  • Heat oil in large pot or dutch oven.
  • Add pork and cook till browned.
  • Add onion and garlic and cook till tender.
  • Sprinkle flour over all, mix thoroughly and stir for 1-2 minute.
  • Add tomatoes and chilies with juices.
  • Add cumin, salt and pepper to taste. Cover and simmer gently for 1/2 hrs., or until pork is tender.
  • This is great alone, or with a side dish of hot refried beans, a crisp salad with avocados and tomatoes, and warmed flour tortillas. Add a frosty cold beer and you've got it made! Be sure to double or triple in case the neighbors stop by. This recipe is fantastic as leftovers.Place a big spoonful into a warmed flour tortilla, add beans and cheese and you've got a great burrito! Enjoy!

    WOW! Loaded with flavor! Pork butt is the right cut for this stew, as "white meat" pork tends to not be as tender. My son and I literally gobbled this up; his with a tortilla, sour cream and cheese, and me just as is. Loved this!

    We loved this!! I added a generous amount of crushed red pepper and served over brown rice. Wonderful the first night, but truly amazing as leftovers. Thanks for sharing, Fluff :)

    Nice, tasty dish. Only made half of the recipe as there are only three of us and I knew that two pounds of pork would make way too much for us. Served with corn bread. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup.
