  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 (2-3 pound) boneless pork shoulder roast, trimmed of excess fat and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or more if needed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups chopped fresh tomatillos

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 pinch salt, or to taste (optional)
