Smoked Pork Chile Verde

  1. Char tomatillos, peppers, onions, and lime on grill. Cook lime last so not to burn.

  2. Place peppers, onion, tomatillos, garlic, pork, fish sauce and rubs in Dutch oven. Squeeze lime juice and smoke for 3 hours at 250. I used an oak/hickory blend.

  3. At 3 hour mark, cover Dutch oven and cook for another hour.

  4. Pull pork out of Dutch oven and plane on baking sheet to shred. Add bunch of cilantro to broth and cover Dutch oven and cook for another 20 min. Shred pork and hold.

  5. After 20 min, use immersion blender, or put broth in a standing blender and blend until smooth. Meanwhile place pork in broiler to crisp.

  6. Serve pork on corn tortilla with the sauce and cojita cheese and any toppings you like.
