Tequila Pork Chile Verde

35 mins (prep 35)
14 ingredients
4 servings (serving size: 1 1/4 cups)
A surprisingly quick and upscale Mexican meal, this easy stew is made with crispy cornmeal-ancho-and-chili-crusted pork tenderloin, tart tomatillos, canned green chiles, jalapeños, and stock. As it simmers, the flavors mellow until it's time for the final touch: a splash of tequila. Fresh tomatillos come in papery husks, which peel off easily to reveal what looks like small green tomatoes. They have a tart lemony flavor and must be cooked before eating; a brief stewing will mellow the flavor while leaving some of the characteristic tang.
