I made this last night, it was wonderful! I used tomatillos from my garden that I put in the freezer last fall. I didn't change anything else. We loved it! Served with Honey Cornbread.

I did this in the oven very low for 5 or 6 hours and there was no sauce to work with so I added the extra liquid from #97498 then added the beans. Tasty

This is a super simple and tasty recipe. I followed it as written and it came out perfect. I am adding it to my favorite slow cooker recipe file.

excellent recipe. i put it all together the day before and the next day i just pulled it out of the fridge and turned it on! the recipe was very easy to put together. i did make some changes, i doubled the garlic, i used fresh serrano peppers instead of the pickled japs, i used flat leaf parsley instead of cilantro, i added an onion with the tomatillos, i sprinkled the mixture with chicken boullion powder instead of salt, i omitted the sugar and cooked on low rather than high. thanks for sharing this great crockpot recipe! i'll have to try some of your variations too!

Something REALLY different ! I had a 4 lb. boneless pork roast, and I THOUGHT 2, 1 -1/2 lb. cans of tomatillos. Well -- 1 can had completely eaten through the top of the can -- the other looked and smelled OK. I proceeded with the recipe, doubling the other ingredients, and cooked for almost 7 hours. After removing the pork cubes, I whizzed with my immersion blender, and added some flour water. For beans , I had 2 cans of Cannellini beans, and no fresh cilantro -- but used a generous portion of dried. Served over left-over couscous I thought it was fairly tasty - (have LOTS of left-overs !), but DH was not so enamoured. Did add sugar at the end, and some lemon juice to cut the salty flavor. I will freeze 2 meal portions, and try to surprise him again in a little while ! Thanks, Witch Doctor, for a tasty change in menu.

My oh my, Cookiedog, was this scrumptious! I don't often cook with tomatillos, and don't know why. This was absolutely wonderful! Couldn't have been easier to put together. Used the seeds with the pickled peppers as we like a little more heat, and also deleted the beans. Thanks for posting, Cookiedog.

EXCELLENT and EASY! I used lean sirloin pork so it wasn't as flavorful as the fatty kind but it was still very good. I LOVE tomatillos! I used cannellini beans, pickled jalapeno slices and didn't need the sugar. Thanks for this keeper recipe cookiedog! Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

Another new favorite! I might do two lbs. of meat next time, though, cook on low, and use more jalapeños (used 4 this time). This was really easy to throw together, and soooo yummy! I skipped the beans and the sugar.

Wow--that was good! Did all my veg prep and marinated the pork in the worcestershire the night before. Used a small can of green chilis instead of the jalapenos and skipped the beans and sugar. Served over cous cous! Will definely make again-thanks cookiedog!
