    Very simple. I made the salsa ahead of time and refrigerated until ready to use. Wouldn't change a thing. However, I used pork tenderloin (it's leaner). Meat broke apart easily with a spoon after simmering.

    Tomatillo sauce was excellent, as well as the rest of the recipe. I used pork and made tacos with them and added a little tomatillo sauce.....awesome!

    YUMYUMYUM! Trimming the Boston butt took longer than I'd anticipated so next time I'll use pork loin. That being said, the pork was wonderfully tender and the sauce was so flavorful! I will definitely be making this again!

    Nice pairing, the tomato rice & tomatillo sauced pork.

    Excellent and simple...pork was very flavorful and tender! I made the chili verde ahead as well, added extra garlic, jalapeno and onion (we like spicy!). Used brown rice, which took about 2x as long and required additional liquid, by put still really good. This will be a regular in our house, for sure. Love the idea of using it for tacos...yumm! I wonder if it might be good to braise the pork in the oven, instead of simmering on the stovetop. time!

    Amazing dish, truly amazing. I followed recipe carefully and broiling the tomatillos seems to make a huge difference. The final flavor is strong and bold, but at the same time delicate and nuanced. I don't think I will ever buy salsa verde in a jar again. This entire recipe is fantastic, including the rice, but the tomatillo sauce alone is extraordinary.

    Fresh and flavorful. I really liked the chili verde and will use this again in this recipe or use it for other uses. An overall delicious recipe.
