Pork Green Chili Recipe Ingredients


  • Roast the chilies: Preheat your broiler to high. Place half of the fresh green chilies on a baking sheet and broil them for about 5 minutes, until charred on one side. Flip the chilies and broil for another 5 minutes. Transfer the chilies to a brown paper bag, seal it tightly, and let them steam for a few minutes. Repeat with the remaining chilies. Once cooled, remove the chilies from the bag, stem them, and remove the charred skin and seeds. Place the cleaned chile flesh in a food processor and pulse to your desired texture. Set aside the roasted chilies.
  • Brown the Pork: Heat the oil in a large pot over high heat. Season the pork cubes with salt and add them to the pot. Brown the pork for about 8-10 minutes. Once browned, remove the pork from the pot and set aside. Leave about 1/4 cup of fat in the pot, draining off any excess.
  • Make the green chili: Add the chopped onions, jalapeños, and garlic to the remaining oil in the pot. Cover and cook over low heat for 5 minutes to sweat the onions. Make sure they don’t brown.
  • Raise the heat to medium and stir in the flour, cumin, and black pepper. Cook and stir for 2 minutes to remove the raw taste of the flour and to scrape up any browned bits. When the onion and flour mixture starts to color, remove the pot from the heat and gradually pour in the broth while whisking continuously to prevent lumps.
  • Return the browned pork to the pot along with the roasted chilies, oregano, and salt. Place the pot over moderate heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 30 minutes, until the sauce thickens slightly and the pork becomes tender. Stir the sauce occasionally while simmering. The finished sauce should be thick enough to coat a spoon. If it’s too thick, you can thin it with a bit of extra broth.

The spicy green chili used is packed with vitamin C and is good for collagen formation in the skin. It is an antioxidant that improves immunity and digestion. Not to forget garlic for its mineral enrichment, which adds manganese and selenium. Onions add fiber, support digestion, and improve blood sugar.
