  • 2 pounds boneless pork shoulder, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 onion, cut into 1-inch pieces

  1. Stir the flour, salt and black pepper in a large bowl. Add the pork and toss to coat.

  4. Stir the broth, green chiles and cilantro in the saucepan. Return the pork to the saucepan. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook, uncovered, for 1 hour or until the pork is fork-tender, stirring occasionally. Serve with the sour cream and additional fresh cilantro.
