Monday Mixing: Pork in Salsa Verde

This is a favorite recipe of mine. It's cheap and easy like a ... nevermind ...
Source: Me
  • 2 pounds of pork butt or shoulder or country style ribs. Whatever is on sale. Cut into 2-inch chunks.
  • 1 small can of salsa verde
  • 1 small can of salsa casera
  • Garlic salt
  • Oil for frying
  1. Sprinkle one side of the meat with garlic salt.
  2. Place oil in a large pot on medium-high heat.
  3. Fry the meat until golden (in batches if necessary), remove from pot and allow to drain.
  4. Put the salsa casera in the pot to cook down for about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the meat back to the pot, add the salsa verde, bring to a boil and cover.
  6. Lower heat to a simmer and cook until the meat is quite tender - approximately 45 minutes.
TRILLIAN'S TIPS: If you like a soupier sauce with a less intense flavor, fill one of the salsa cans with water and add it to the pot.
I'll share a secret with you: I'm a lazy cook. I use as much pre-chopped stuff as I can and I have the butcher cut my meat into little pieces for me too.
