Pork takes about 3 to 4 hours in the oven. Cut the butt into chunks put them in a roasting pan, then add the onion, Anaheim pepper and one cilantro bunch in the pan as well, cover them with water and season. Cover the pan with foil and into the oven!

Salsa: 
Peel and wash the tomatillos, cut them into chunks so they are easy to blend. Add the cilantro onion and the seasoning (the secret to the perfect tomatillo sauce is a pinch of sugar!) Blend.
