Tomatillo Pork Burritos
Prep time
Total time
Pulled pork simmered for hours with tangy yet savory tomatillo sauce that gushes in your mouth like a stew wrapped in a tortilla covered in cheese. Slurping goodness.
Serves: 1 Roast
  • pork roast (shoulder or butt work fine)
  • 20-25 large tomatillos
  • 2 onions
  • jalepenos to taste
  • 3 large poblano peppers (substitute canned green chili's if unavailable)
  • garlic to taste (fresh is best, powdered works)
  • ½ bunch cilantro
  • Juice of 2-3 limes
  • cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • cayenne
For the Burritos
  • shredded cheese
  • sour cream
  • refried beans
  • rice
  • tortillas
  1. Clean tomatillos, cut in half and arrange skin up on baking sheet.
  2. Roughly chop onion and place on sheet.
  3. Half and destem jalepenos and poblanos. Deseed jalepenos if desired (all seeds for mild, ½ seeds for spicier) jalepenos. Place on sheet with tomatillos and onion.
  4. Drizzle olive oil over tray and stir lightly to coat.
  5. Broil on high until tomatillos are blackened and aromatic.
  6. Let cool to a safe handling temperature.
  7. Transfer to blender. Add garlic, cilantro, lime, cumin, salt and pepper, cayenne (if not hot enough) and a hint of cinnamon.
  8. Blend, then pour oven pork roast.
  9. Cook for 6-8 hours on low.

This also makes a phenomenal stew or can be served over rice.
