very good, easy prep

Made to recipe except used fresh garlic instead of bottled.   Instead of instant rice, made simple (no tomato) black-beans-and-rice.  Had Sunset's spicy avocado poblano salad while the pork was simmering.  Very good dinner.

Really good flavors in this recipe, I think we chopped the tomatillos too finely, because they were lost in the sauce next time we will cut them into 3/4 inch cubes.

My husband LOVED this dish. Even more than the pork chile verde I make, which takes at least three hours. My kids love this one too and have for years. My oldest daughter, who's a graduate student now, makes this for herself now because she gets cravings for it.

This recipe is a standing favorite in our house, and we make it often and serve over white rice. I make it exactly as the recipe states and it is quick and easy and SO tasty. I absolutely fell in love with tomatillos when I first made this dish.

My husband and I both rated this recipe a ten on taste. Even better, the most time consuming part of the recipe was cooking the rice. In the ten minutes that the pork simmered, I had the kitchen clean and table set.

My supermarket did not have fresh tomatillos, so I substituted green salsa as suggested in a previous review. Tomatoes are also not in season, so I used an assortment of fresh sweet Italian peppers and served over rice. This was a very easy, tasty dish. Perfect for a weeknight dinner. I will definitely make this again.
