This is my cheater version I have put together since I can't get good tomatillos here in Wisconsin during the winter.

Even though this is Lisa's cheating version of a traditional Pork Chili Verde it still packs a punch of great flavor. The green enchilada sauce gives this dish a nice tanginess and the salsa verde adds a bit of spice. The flavors really come together to give the pork a great taste while keeping the pork nice and moist. We just love this easy to prepare dish in the Test Kitchen and think your family will too.
