Sunday I made Burrito Green Chili with pork, a dish I’ve copied from one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. In the past it turned out really well. This time something didn’t go quite right, which can be pretty frustrating when you feel you did everything well.
I don’t think my question has to do with what went wrong with this dish, but I’ve been thinking about this for some time and thought I would see what you think.
I seared the pork with sautéed onions but didn’t allow the meat to cook through. I then rolled the pork in the flour taco shell with the refried beans etc… then placed in the oven to finish cooking. My thinking is that the meat wouldn’t be overcooked.
Do you think it’s better to sear and not cook the meat all the way and let it finish cooking in the oven? Or is it better to turn down the heat and let the meat cook through with all the flavors simmering in the skillet before moving forward?
Thanks for your help,
