Green Chili with Pork

The Original Recipe:
My past recipes have been posting the Original Recipe, and then showing how I have changed it to make it my own. This recipe is my own, at it's start. I don't even remember where an original was from, but I created it just from eating this dish and guessing what was in it. Voila! It's delicious!

Green Chili with Pork

2lb.s Pork Stew meat
4-6 Tomatillos
1 Poblano Pepper
3 Cloves Garlic
Fresh Cilantro (about 1 cup)
4 green onions
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1 can Hominy
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. coriander

Peel Tomatillos and cut in half. Place tomatillos, poblano and garlic (still in paper) on baking sheet. Broil until charred a bit on outside. Pull out of oven and let rest. Peel skin off of poblano. Place roasted tomatillo, peeled garlic (will slide right out of paper at this point), green onions and cilantro in blender and blend. Meanwhile, sauté pork with salt and pepper in some olive oil until crispy on outsides. Pour in chicken broth to scrape up bottom of pan. Add tomatillo mixture, cumin and coriander (more salt and pepper to taste). Add hominy. Stir to combine and simmer for 30 minutes until pork is tender and flavors meld... Serve with rice or cornbread.
