  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 4 to 5 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 4 pounds pork country style loin ribs, trimmed of fat and cut into cubes

  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • Cilantro, freshly chopped (for garnish)
  • Sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (for garnish)

  1. Put peeled and rinsed tomatillos into a blender with just enough water to blend into a puree. Set aside. Heat olive oil in a large stock pot. Saute onion until slightly browned.

  2. Add chopped jalapeno and garlic. Saute a few minutes more. Add pork and brown on both sides. Salt and pepper meat to taste. Add green chilies, pureed tomatillos and oregano.
