TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Cook: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 pounds boneless pork, cut into 1-1/2-inch cubes

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chilies
  • Minced fresh cilantro, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Add pork, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat.
  • 2. In a pressure cooker over medium heat, brown pork in oil. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir for 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes, water and chilies.
  • 3. Close cover securely; place pressure regulator on vent pipe. Bring cooker to full pressure over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook for 8 minutes. (Pressure regulator should maintain a slow steady rocking motion; adjust heat if needed.)
