    1. Season pork cubes with salt and pepper and dust with enough flour to lightly coat. Heat oil in large heavy skillet and sauté pork until nicely browned on all sides, about 8-10 minutes. Stir in onion and chiles and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes, until onion is soft. Add parsley, zest, lime juice and broth. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until meat is fork-tender and mixture is reduced to consistency of gravy. Serve meat garnished with wedges of lime and chopped parsley.
