Colorado Green Chili (Chile Verde)
Tender chunks of pork are stewed together with roasted green chiles in this classic stew.

In a Dutch oven or sizable pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.

Place the pork into the hot oil after seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook for about 7 minutes, or until golden brown on all sides.

The pork should be removed and set aside after browning.

Stir in the onion and garlic after lowering the heat to medium.

Cook and stir the onion for about 5 minutes, or until it softens and becomes translucent.

Add the green chiles, chicken broth, diced tomatoes with juice, tomatillo salsa, and pork back to the pot.

Add clove and oregano for seasoning.

Over medium-high heat, bring to a simmer.

Next, lower the heat to medium-low, cover the pan, and simmer for 20 minutes.
