    I've made it several times over the years, it's delicious and pretty simple to throw together. Just made it again last night and I had some notes regarding the steps. As far as the order of steps, I would cut the pork first, then puree the tomatillos and assemble rest of ing. while you brown the meat. I also subbed beer for water (Modelo Especial), I used 1 1/2 C since the 1 C looked low. I also set the timer for 1 hour & 15 min and it turned out fine, next time I will check after just 1 hour.
