Pork and Tomatillo Chili

I'm on a quest to use up a collection of stray bottles of leftover beer that have accumulated from various parties we've thrown. As a first experiment, this turned out really well.

The Ingredients

The Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Season the pork with salt and pepper and brown it in a dutch oven or large ovenproof pot, working in batches if necessary. Remove from the pot and set aside. Pour off any excess fat.
  3. Add the onions, garlic, chilies, and tomatillos, and cook over medium-high heat until the onions start to get soft.
  4. Add the pork, the beans, and the beer and bring to a simmer.
  5. Cover the pot and stick it in the oven for about 3 hours.

When it's done, the beer will have cooked down to a thick, delicious broth, and the pork will be tender enough to eat with a spoon. Mmmm. Oddly, though, I think the tastiest part of this recipe might have been the beans - I think I'm going to try just cooking a big pot of pinto beans with chilies and beer.

Makes 4-6 servings.
