Pork Carnitas with Green Sauce


Here  I go again cooking with green chiles:)  I am not sure why I have been in such a Mexican food kick here lately.
 Maybe cause my sweet hubby's favorite food group is Mexican food!   And its my second favorite food group! 
 Maybe I have always cooked more Mexican food than anything else? Pork Carnitas are seasoned bite sized pieces of pork cooked in a green chile sauce until tender!  Serve in a corn tortilla or wrapped in a flour tortilla with toppings of cheese, avocado and jalapeƱo!  


Pork Carnitas
Ingredients
  • 2 lb Pork Roast
  • 1-28oz can green enchilada sauce
  • 12 fresh roasted green chiles (fresh or canned)
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
1. Chop pork roast into 1/2 to 1 inch cubes, salt and pepper as to your taste.
2. In a large dutch oven (I always use my favorite old cast iron pot),brown meat on low to med heat stirring often.
3. Pour in green enchilada sauce and bring to a boil
4. Reduce heat to a simmer.
5. Cover and cook for about two hours until the carnitas (little meats) are fork tender. (may add chicken broth is more liquid is needed)
6. Add roughly chopped fresh roasted green chiles.
7. Increase heat to med high and continue to cook and stir until the liquid has evaporated. It should resemble a thick stew at this point.
8. Serve with freshly warmed tortillas, corn or flour, your preference.

  4. My mouth is watering. Yum! I love green chiles and pork. My sister is the green chili queen in the family, but THIS is a far easier way of enjoying the chili/pork combination. I will definitely be making this.
