Tender pork shoulder in an awesome tasting green chili sauce. Another great cool-evening meal. One of my favorite dishes that mom would make. Serve with tortillas.

  • Melt shortening in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add meat and cook until thoroughly browned on all sides, 5 to 6 minutes. Add onion and garlic and cook until onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add water, tomatoes, green chiles, salt, and oregano.

  • Cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until meat is tender, 1 to 2 hours. Remove cover and simmer until green chili sauce reaches desired consistency, 5 to 10 minutes more.

Just by reading this recipe I knew I would improve the taste by using chicken broth instead of water. Instead of using whole canned tomatoes and having to chop them, I used canned diced tomatoes, saving a step. I also used hatch chiles that I had previously frozen instead of canned green chiles. With these changes it rates 5 stars, 4 stars the way it is written. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
