"Purslane, known as verdolagas, tastes like a cross between spinach and cucumbers. Verdolagas are very common in Mexican kitchens, especially in pork stews. Comfort food at its best!"

  1. Combine pork ribs, pork shoulder, water, and salt in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Uncover and increase heat to medium-high. Continue cooking and stirring constantly until all liquid has evaporated and pork has browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Combine onion, tomatillos, serrano peppers, and cilantro in a medium saucepan. Add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until tomatillos are tender and have changed color, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer vegetable mixture to a blender; add garlic and and blend carefully until sauce is smooth.
  3. Pour sauce into the Dutch oven, season stew with salt and pepper, and simmer for 1 hour. Add purslane and simmer until pork is tender and purslane is soft, about 20 minutes more.
