How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large enameled cast-iron casserole, heat the olive oil until almost smoking. Season the pork cubes with salt and black pepper and add them to the casserole. Cook the pork over high heat, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned in spots, about 5 minutes. Add the onion, green chiles, serrano chiles and garlic. Cover and cook over high heat, stirring once or twice, until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Cover partially and simmer the stew over moderately low heat until the pork is just tender and the broth is reduced by about half, about 20 minutes.

Step 2    

Stir in the 1/4 cup of cilantro and season with salt and black pepper. Garnish the stew with cilantro and serve with lime wedges, corn tortillas and rice.

Make Ahead

The stew can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

Suggested Pairing

Fresh, hoppy pale ale: Tröegs.

Review Body: Thaigrr, I think you cut out all the flavor and texture with your substitutions...

Review Body: Wish I read the comments before I started cooking this dish. Followed the recipe and was disappointed with the lack of flavor. Agree with the prior comment - tasted like boiled pork and peppers in a bland broth. Perhaps blistering the peppers and adding spices (cumin, coriander) would enhance the dish...

Review Body: When I bookmarked this recipe, I didn't realize that there was zero comment on the recipe, which is odd as someone else has mentioned.  I made the recipe anyway, with a lot of substitutes (because I was too lazy to chase down all of the ingredients).  I subbed all the peppers with jalapeño peppers (about 3) and the pork shoulder for pork loin.  It tasted good, but it was just uninteresting.  It felt like a glorified pale pork in chicken broth with peppers.
