Pork Green Chili:

  1. For the dry rub: Put the paprika, granulated garlic, oregano, black pepper, iodized salt, seasoning salt, onion powder, white pepper and thyme in a bowl and whisk until fully blended. Put into an airtight container and store in a cool, dry place. Keeps 4 weeks.
  2. For the beer braised pulled pork: Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
  3. Score the fat cap of the pork butt with 1-inch squares. Generously rub 1 cup dry rub into every nook and cranny of the pork. Cut onions in half horizontally between root and tip. Lay onions flat in a flameproof roasting pan, then add oil and cook over medium heat until they start to slightly turn brown on bottom, about 3 minutes. Place pork atop the onions and pour in beer (do not pour directly on pork). Turn heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Cover with heavy duty aluminum foil and bake overnight or 14 hours. Remove from oven and remove foil. Let rest at room temperature until it can be handled, about 25 minutes. Remove pork from pan and place on a sheet pan. Remove the scored fat cap on top and remove the large pieces of fat in the butt; shred meat with shredding forks or by hand (do not overshred; leave some chunks). Reserve 2 onions from roasting pan for green chili prep.
  4. Put 1/2 cup reserved liquid from roasting pan back into the pork and mix lightly together.
  5. For the green chili: Dice 1 cup onions from the pulled pork. In a pasta pot on medium-high heat, cook onions, stirring frequently, until they start to brown slightly, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until garlic starts to brown, then add 1 cup of the roasted Anaheim peppers. Stir in until mixed, then add flour. Cook flour for 1 minute, stirring. Add tomatillos, chicken stock, jalapenos and remaining Anaheims. Bring heat to medium-low. Add cumin, granulated garlic, oregano and salt, then stir in hot sauce and slowly bring to a boil. Turn heat to low and cook for 1 1/2 hours. Remove from heat and add 1 1/2 pounds pulled pork, lime juice and cilantro. Let rest for 5 minutes.
