DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the pork into small chunks. You can use pork roast, pork loin, or Boston butt.
  • Husk the tomatillos, de-stem them, and cut them into large chunks.
  • Cut the jalapenos, Anaheim peppers, and Serrano peppers into large chunks.
  • Put tomatillos and peppers and cilantro in a food processor, puree them all.
  • Add the can of green chilis, diced tomatos, and tomato sauce to the food processor.
  • Continue blending until the mixture is a consistent color.
  • Add the chicken broth, oregano, cumin, and chili powder.
  • Turn the crock-pot on high and cover.
  • Dust the pork with flour, salt and pepper.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil, shortening, or lard in a frying pan.
  • Add the garlic and onions, sauté until the onions are tender.
  • Add the pork, brown it thoroughly.
  • Pour the entire pan’s contents (including drippings) into the crock-pot.
  • Cook in the crock-pot on high for 2 hours.
  • After 2 hours, reduce the heat to medium or low and cook for at least another 2 hours. For very tender pork, cook on low heat for 8 or more hours.
  • 30 minutes before serving, mix the cornstarch with 2 ounces of cold water, and add it to the crock-pot. Add more if you want to thicken it further.
  • Serve over bean burritos. I used flour tortillas, with refried beans, chopped onions, and cheese wrapped inside. Bake the burritos in the oven at 400 for 15-20 minutes (until the tortilla just barely starts to dry out). Cover them with the chili verde and pork, then garnish (or further smother) with onions and cheese.
