2 Lbs. Pork Back Ribs
Half an Onion
1 Clove of Garlic
Salt ( As desired)
1/2 Lb. Tomatillo
5 Mexican Nopalitos
Step 1: The Ribs
The point of only putting a pot of water is to have the ribs cook by steam. The water evaporates and cooks the ribs evenly that way. Stir ( turn ribs) them constantly. Add about 1-1.5 teaspoons at about 10 minutes. Add more or less if desired.
Step 2: The Green Sauce
Bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Bring down heat and add Serrano Peppers and the Green Tomatillo and leave on low heat for about 7 minutes. Adding more tomatillo equals less spicy. More peppers, more spicy.
After, blend the peppers and the tomatillo with the hot water with two teaspoons of salt( add more or less as desired). After its blended, strain the mixture to get rid of the coarse parts.
Step 3: Back to the Ribs
Step 4: The Nopales
Stir fry the nopales with very little oil and one clove of garlic and a little bit of onion. Add salt as desired.Make sure the saucepan is left uncovered and on very low heat. Stir often.
Once the nopales change from light green to a dark green, they are ready.
