Found this recipe on the back of the La Victoria jar and it's good. I change my recipe in that my pork is cooked first and instead of cubing it - it is more shreaded. When I make pork butt - this is what I do with my left overs - I make this chile verde recipe!

How to Make Chile Verde

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut pork into 1/2-inch cubes; season cubes with salt and pepper. NOTE: I changed my recipe in that my pork is cooked first and instead of cubing it - it is more shreaded. When I make pork butt - this is what I do with my left overs
  2. In a large, heavy pan with lid, brown the cubes well in oil and melted butter. If your pork is already cooked - just add it here and skip to step 3
  3. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes, then drain the fat from the pan.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients, cover, and simmer for at least 90 minutes, stirring frequently; add more water (or broth or beer) during cooking if necessary to achieve desired sauce texture.
