Chile Verde #1 – “Puerco Entomatado”

1 16 oz. jar Hollister Tamales Tomatillo Sauce
1-1.25 lbs Pork loin or butt, cut into chunks or "pulled"
1.5 Tbsp vegetable oil
.5 cup water
1 Bay Leaf
4-6 Serrano Chile Peppers (see “Note”, below)
.5 Spanish or Yellow Onion, chopped
3 cloves Garlic, unpeeled
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large pot. Season pork chunks with salt and pepper and add to pot. Add Bay Leaf to pot. Cook the pork, stirring frequently to brown the meat on all sides (8 – 10 minutes).
Add the water, cover and reduce heat to simmer for 20 minutes.
While the meat is simmering, roast Serrano chiles and garlic cloves either in the broiler on a foil lined pan, or on an ungreased pan over medium heat (toss to roast evenly). Either method will take approximately 10 minutes for the chiles and approximately 5 minutes for the garlic. Place the chiles and garlic cloves in a bowl and cover with foil to cool for about 5 minutes. Peel garlic cloves and place in a blender or food processer with the Serrano chiles. Puree to a slightly chunky mixture.
Pour the jar of Hollister Tamales Tomatillo Sauce into the pot. Add the chile/garlic “puree”.
Bring the pot to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 45 minutes.
Note about Chile Peppers:
Use gloves when handling chile peppers. The oils WILL cause fingers to burn. Do not touch your face or other exposed skin when handling chile peppers.The traditional recipe calls for Serrano chiles. However, different chiles are used in different regions of Mexico. Accordingly, your choice of chile pepper can vary according to taste and availability. Additionally, the heat can be adjusted to personal taste by increasing or decreasing the number of chiles used, and/or through the inclusion or deletion of the seeds (we recommend keeping the seeds as they add that “authentic” flavor). Common substitutions are Jalapeño, Poblano, and Anaheim chiles.
