It’s Chile Verde in Here

So I bought some tomatillos because I have heard they make a good sauce. Except one thing, I know nothing about how to cook these pretty little vegetables? Fruit? Either way I wanted to make something different for dinner. I wanted to use my pork steaks and the tomatillos, but I needed a good recipe that would be simple to follow. I was lucky to find a great recipe on a wonderful site Isabel Eats . The about profile says Isabel is a first generation Mexican- American who grew up eating the Mexican dishes she shares with others. Well, Isabel I am giving it a try.

I had surfed the web for different recipes that involved cooking with tomatillos. According to several websites the tomatillos is a tart fruit similar to the gooseberry. The tomatillos is usually roasted first and then the skin peeled before use. Isabel’s chile verde looked appetizing and I decide to give the recipe a try . In the end the recipe was easy to follow and a great starter dish for novice chefs. This dish called for some serrano peppers and jalapeños to the dish, but whew, I am glad I didn’t put in both. The serrano peppers were spicier than I expected however the tartness tomatillos mixed seasoning creates a delicious flavored kick to the stewed pork. Until next time food-lovers unite.
