Introduction

From "You Can Trust a Skinny Cook," By Allison Fishman From "You Can Trust a Skinny Cook," By Allison Fishman
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    3 pounds pork stew meat, trimmed of fat and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
    2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more to taste
    1 large onion, sliced
    4 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
    4 large poblano chiles, cut into 1-inch pieces, with seeds
    4 cups lower-sodium chicken broth
    1 1/2 pounds tomatillos, husked, rinsed, and cut into quarters
    18 6-inch corn tortillas
    1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

From "You Can Trust a Skinny Cook," By Allison Fishman

1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Season the pork with salt, add to the pot, and cook in batches until brown, about 3 minutes per side. Be sure not to crowd the pan, and repeat until all the pork is cooked. Set the pork aside on a plate.
2. Add the onion, garlic, and chiles to the pot and reduce the heat to medium. Cook, stirring up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the onion has softened, about 6 minutes.
3. Return the pork to the pot and add the broth and tomatillos. Bring the stew to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatillos have fallen apart and you can cut the pork with the side of a wooden spoon, about 1 hour.
4. While pork is simmering, cut two of the tortillas into 1/2-inch pieces and add to the stew. Just before serving, heat the remaining tortillas according to package directions.
5. Remove the stew from the heat and stir in the cilantro. Taste and adjust for seasoning. Serve with the warm tortillas.


Serving Size: 1 1/4 cups stew with 2 tortillas

    The nutritionals must be inaccurate (a misprint or something), because a pork stew couldn't have 56.6 calories per serving. - 7/9/11

    This is so delicious! The only thing I did "extra" was to chop up the cilantro stems and add them to the pork while it was cooking. Kids love this recipe. - 3/21/20

    I have Allison Fishmans book and it is terrific. This is a winner recipe, Have done it with turkey tenderloin or pork tenderloin. I have recently done this in a slow cooker with a couple changes, added a can of hominy instead of corn tortillas and made salsa verde with tomatillas 1.5 cups added. - 8/18/18
