We like the tang and body that green tomatoes give this comforting stew.

How to Make It

Step 1

Chop 3 tomatoes and 1 poblano pepper, and place in a large bowl. Stir in cilantro and next 3 ingredients. Process mixture, in 2 batches, in a blender or food processor until smooth.

Step 2

Coarsely chop remaining tomatoes and peppers, and place in a 6-qt. slow cooker.

Step 3

Trim and discard fat from pork. Cut pork into 2-inch cubes. Combine pork and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl, and toss to coat. Sprinkle with flour, and toss to coat.

Step 4

Cook pork, in batches, in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Place pork over tomato mixture in slow cooker. Pour pureed tomato mixture over pork.

Step 5

Cover and cook on LOW 6 to 7 hours or until pork is tender. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chile verde with tortillas and Green Tomato Salsa.

This was very good. It was a lot easier to make than I expected. Once the prep is done, you just leave it to slow cook. It is warm spicy and fresh tasting. My husband loved it. I substituted 3 lbs of pork tenderloin for the boston butt. It made prep a lot easier because there was no trimming.
