1 1/2 lbs pork, cubed
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 large fresh onion, minced or diced or 1/2 cup dried onion flakes
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 (16 ounce) jar la victoria salsa verde
1/2 cup water or chicken broth (preferred) or mexican beer (if you're feeling "beery" )
1 Cut pork into 1/2-inch cubes; season cubes with salt and pepper.
2 In a large, heavy pan with lid, brown the cubes well in oil and melted butter.
3 Add the onion and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes, then drain the fat from the pan.
4 Add the remaining ingredients, cover, and simmer for at least 90 minutes, stirring frequently; add more water (or broth or beer) during cooking if necessary to achieve desired sauce texture.
5 Makes 4 to 6 servings.
My notes: I usually double this recipe. I use one jar of La Victoria Salsa Suprema instead of the salsa verde as a second jar. I add about 1/2 lb tomatillos and smash them when they are fork tender.
God is never early, but always on time.
