2 pounds lean pork
1 large onion -- coarsely chopped
1 large green bell pepper -- coarsely chopped
4 cloves garlic minced
4 ounces diced green chiles
2 medium jalapenos sliced
4 medium tomatillos
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon dried red chili peppers
2 teaspoons sage
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon black pepper (optional)
1/2 cup beer (optional)
1 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste

Preparation / Directions:

Coarsely chop and saute the onion and green pepper in olive oil with the garlic. Throw into the crockpot. Also throw in the green chilis. Depending on your propensity for spicy food, you may add from 1-3 jalapenos. Then, throw the tomatillos in the pot. Trim off all the excess fat you can from the pork, cut into cubes, and brown in the pan that you sauteed the onion, etc. in. Put into the pot. Now, the seasoning mixture. I prefer to grind up the spices in my mortar, perhaps with some black pepper. I almost never put salt in anything, so I probably wouldn't here either, but you may want to. I probably would add a dash of beer for obscure reasons. This crockpots all day, or could be simmered for probably about 2 hour
