Here's a refresher from Marco's old recipe - Green Chili Pork
Here you go Osso!
I use this recipe and bake it for two hours at 250, its very tender. I found it online one day and gave it a try.
2 1/2 to 3lbs. pork loin ( 1/2in. cube )
1 tbsp. Salt
1 1/2 teas. Pepper
1 teas. garlic powder
2 teas. chili powder
1/4 teas. Cumin
4 tbsp. olive oil
2 1/2 cups water
The green sauce
1 ½ lbs. Fresh tomatillos
1 large onion
2 green or anaheim chili’s or pablanos
4 cloves fresh peeled garlic
½ teas. Salt
¼ teas. Pepper
¼ teas. Sugar
Start by cutting your pork into 1/2 inch cubes and add to a large ziplock bag. Add the salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, cumin and olive oil to your bag. (Do not add the water) Close the bag leaving a little bit of air in it and “smoosh” it around to thoroughly mix the seasoning into the pork. Reopen the bag and remove as much air as you can and close. Set this aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
While your pork is marinating, Peel the outer shell of the tomatillos off and wash them to remove the sticky residue, cut them in half. Slice the onion into 8 equal size pieces. Slice your chili’s in half, remove the stems and de-seed them. Transfer your tomatillos, onion and chili’s along with the 4 cloves of garlic into a baking dish and bake in a preheated 250 degree oven for 2 hours. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly. Add to a blender along with the salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder and sugar. Start your blender on pulse to get it started and then to blend making sure that everything gets blended. You might have to do this in a few batches. Set this aside until your pork is ready for it.
After your pork has marinated, add it to a large deep skillet preheated to high. You will want a pan big enough to hold the pork and the sauce. A good way to know if your pan is hot enough is to add a few drops of olive oil to it and when it starts to smoke, it’s ready. Sear your pork on all sides, stirring often, this will take about 20 minutes or so. Once the pork has seared, stir in your sauce along with about 2 1/2 cups of water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to the lowest possible setting and cover. Your looking for a very low simmer, it should barely even bubble. Cook for about 1 1/2 hours stirring occasionally.
Next grocery visit I'll buy the pork, and more tomatillos as I didn't grab enough of them. I'll memorize this one of these days.
