Default By Request: Chile Verde Recipe

Seems like we had a few requests for the Missus's Chile Verde, which I posted a few days ago:

So here it is:

Chile Verde


2 Pounds of pork stew meat or pork shoulder roast
cup vegetable oil
3 Poblano chiles
3 Anaheim chiles
2 Jalapenos
5-20 Chile de Arbol, stems removed (Use less if you want your chile verde mild, use more if you like it hot)
1 medium onion
3 cloves garlic
4 Tomatillos
1 Tbsp. coriander
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. oregano
2 bay leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
1 bottle or can of beer of choice
1 cup chicken broth
2 Tbsp flour
cup cold water

Preheat oven to 375. Cut pork into small bite sized pieces and brown in a skillet with vegetable oil in 2 separate batches. Place cooked meat into a dutch oven. Grill the anaheims, poblanos, and jalapenos until skin is black. Also grill onion and tomatillos until slightly soft and browned. Place chilies in a brown paper bag to soften for about 20 mins.

Remove skin and seeds from the blackened chilies and place in a blender with onion, garlic, tomatillos, chili de arbol and chicken broth. DO NOT WASH THE CHILES. Blend until smooth and add to meat in the dutch oven. Add the coriander, cumin, chili powder, oregano and salt and pepper. Pour beer into mixture and stir until combined.

Place covered dutch oven in preheated oven and cook for approximately 2 hours or until pork is fork tender. Combine flour and cold water into a slurry and pour into chile verde mixture. Cook an additional 30 minutes with dutch oven cover removed stirring occasionally. Remove from oven and serve with tortillas, cheese and sprinkle of cilantro. Can also be used in burritos or enchiladas. Enjoy!
