  • Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in an ovenproof, heavy, large covered pot over high heat.(If you don't have a large pot that goes from stovetop to oven, simply prepare on stovetop, and then transfer to a covered casserole before baking).
  • Add half of the pork cubes; sprinkle with half of the salt and half of the black pepper. Cook pork until starting to brown, stirring often. Remove pork.
  • Repeat with remaining pork cubes, salt and black pepper, adding more oil if necessary.
  • Drain drippings from pot.
  • Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the same pot over medium heat. Cook onion in hot oil until tender.
  • Stir in undrained chiles and garlic; cook for 2 minutes.
  • Return pork to pot. Add chicken broth.
  • Cover and put in oven to bake for 1 hour.
  • Serve pork in tortillas topped with Cheddar cheese, tomato and sour cream if desired.
