Very good and a forgiving recipe if you want to adjust quantities of any of the ingredients. The long cooking time does mellow the spices so you might need to add more towards the end or before serving. Also, use a good beer (otherwise it's the equivalent of just adding water).

I like using a slightly fattier pork in chile verde. Great flavor in this recipe.

I used canned tomatillos because I can't buy fresh ones easily here. I also doubled the green chiles and omitted the green bell pepper. And I used ground cumin no the seeds.

I made this in the crockpot and it was so easy. I used fresh whole tomatillos and they softened up nicely.

This was a great recipe for my whole family. Easy to make and can be used in a variety of ways. I've also made it without the canned chilies to lower the sodium and just substituted with a few extra tomatilloes. Yum!
