Classic Chile Verde Recipe

A fantastic chile verde recipe.


1 1/2 lb pork shoulder - cubed
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp butter
1 large onion minced or diced (or 1/2 cup dried onion flakes)
4 clove garlic - minced
1 jar(s) la victoria salsa verde (16 oz)
1/2 c water or chicken broth (preferred) or mexican beer


Cut pork into 1/2-inch cubes; season cubes with salt and pepper.

In a large, heavy pan with lid, brown the cubes well in oil and melted butter. If your pork is already cooked - just add it here and skip to step 3

Add the onion and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes, then drain the fat from the pan.

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.
