Pork Pozole

Tom Douglas is a big name in the restaurant business here in Seattle. His chefs prepared Smoky Pork Pozole for Lish (a former online meal delivery service). I loved the flavors! I knew I had to try and recreate it. Most of the recipes I found online used tomatoes instead of tomatillos. So, I decided to try and recreate the one I ate and this one is very close.
