Shredded Pork in a Green Chile Sauce


This is kind of like a cheater’s Chile Verde which is a Mexican dish with pork shoulder roast, roasted tomatillos, roasted poblano or Anaheim  and jalapeno peppers, and a few other ingredients that is braised on top of the stove for a couple of hours. I do plan on making that and sharing the recipe later on but here is a tasty and quick play on those flavors.
