    This pork turns out very tender...due to the 2 hour - overnight marinating. Easy to put together and yummy to eat!

      This was delicious! We used 2 lbs of fresh tomatillos, and cooked them down with the chicken broth until they were soft, then processed them with the onions, garlic and jalapenos. We also tossed in a couple of scallions, since they were left over from another recipe. Bright and tangy, nice tender meat... served with rice and black beans.

      Ok, so this was really tasty! However, I must around here is at times organized chaos. As a result, I did not cube my pork loin. I ended up having to stick the loin in the crockpot and using the tomatillo puree as a sauce to cook it in. It has a fantastic flavor and I cannot wait to use it as a filling for some exceptional baked chimis. Thanks for sharing this recipe and I'll return someday hopefully to make it exactly as directed. Made and reviewed for ZWT 5 for the Genies of Gourmet.
