Chile Verde

2 lbs. lean pork, cubed
1/2 cup water
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 cup diced tomatillos or tomatoes
1 tsp. ground coriander
4 oz. can chopped mild green chiles
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1-2 fresh jalapeno peppers, finely diced, to taste
Dash salt and pepper

In large saucepan, combine pork, water and garlic. Cook until all water is absorbed; continue cooking and let pork brown for a few minutes. Add onion and saute until translucent. Add tomatillos (tomatoes) and canned chiles. Add chopped fresh jalapenos, a little at a time, to taste.

Cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes or until pork is tender. Just before serving, add chopped cilantro, salt and pepper to taste. Can be made into burritos or served in bowl with flour tortillas.
