This delicious tomatillo-based sauce can be made with beef, pork or chicken though it is traditionally served with pork. Unfortunately, I don't have precise measurements of the seasonings, but do some tasting along the way! Serve it over rice for a delicious Mexican dish!

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add fat, and cook, stirring until pan is coated. Remove fat, and put the seasoned meat in the pan. Fry until browned, about 5 minutes.

  • At the same time, make the green sauce. Combine the tomatillos, tomato, jalapenos, and dried chilies in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and cook until soft. Drain excess liquid, and transfer to a blender or food processor along with the garlic and salt. Blend until smooth.

  • Pour sauce over the meat in the pan, and simmer for 15 minutes to blend all of the flavors. Taste, and adjust salt and pepper if necessary.
