Shampoo effect is not just for beer drink, it can also be applied to good recipes. I posted this last January after a long Christmas holiday. The beauty of this recipe, is that you can substitute just about any kind of meat…….including leftover Thanksgiving turkey!
2 lb russet potatoes, cubed
1 ½ medium white onion, chopped
10 cloves garlic, chopped
2 t oregano
32 oz green chiles *
28 oz can whole tomatoes, drained and quartered
12 oz bottle Dos Equis Lager
28 oz chicken stock
2 lb pork butt, cubed **
3 T canola oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Warm Flour Tortillas
In a large stock pot over medium-high heat, add 2 T oil, pork butt, salt and pepper to taste. Brown pork for 4 to 6 minutes, remove from pot and set aside. Reduce heat to medium; add remaining oil and onions, sauté for 3 to 4 minutes or until the onion start to become translucent. Add garlic and oregano, sauté for 1 minute. Next add chiles and tomatoes, sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. Finally add browned pork, potatoes, beer, chicken stock and simmer until potatoes are fork tender, approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. Serve with warm tortillas.
* Canned green chiles can differ greatly. Depending on the level of heat that you can tolerate, it is best to start out with 50% hot chiles and 50% mild.
** For Thanksgiving leftover turkey, omit directions for cooking meat and add turkey 5 to 7 minutes prior to eating in order to warm it up.
