I have to confess, I've never eaten "authentic" chile verde, so I don't know how this compares. But just judged on its own merits, this dish is WONDERFUL. Made it today and my husband and I both think it's a keeper -- very tasty, with just the right amount of heat. I read all the reviews and made the additions many people suggested: corn, black beans, cumin, coriander, lime juice, salt and pepper. Also, my grocery didn't have pork shoulder, so I used a pork sirloin roast, which is a leaner cut and probably made it less soupy and/or greasy than what some reviewers described. I'm giving this 4 stars because, if prepared as written (without the additional ingredients), I feel it would have been a little bland for our tastes. But if you're going to be serving it to children, or others who prefer less spice, the original recipe (perhaps with fewer jalapenos) would probably be the better choice.
