Step 1

Earlier in the day, take the cubes of pork and marinate them in the beer. Allow to sit for a minimum of 3 hours. Save the liquid for later use.

Step 2

In a large pot, on the stove-top over medium high heat, add the olive oil.

Step 3

Add the pork and cook until browned on all sides.

Step 4

Remove the pork and deglaze with the beer and liquid from the pork.

Step 5

Toss in the cumin, cinnamon, onions, and garlic. Let soften and then add all the peppers and tomatillo. Allow vegetables to soften.

Step 6

Return the pork to the mixture in the pot. Add the chicken stock, and bring to a boil. Allow to simmer for 30-40 minutes or until pork is tender and liquid is reduced by half.

Step 7

Garnish with the cilantro.

Step 8

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Step 9

Plate it and top with crema or sour cream if desired

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I chopped up all the peppers...and I should have cooked the pork cubes in batches...I didn't so I ended up steaming them instead of browning...we really enjoyed the flavors that were brought out in chili...this is very similar to my pork enchilada recipe...I have leftovers so I'm going to reduce the mixture down to a thick texture and make enchiladas!!! Made for "For Your Consideration" tag game...
