Add rice, stirring constantly until rice just begins to brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add tomatoes, jalapeño chiles, beer and broth or water. Bring to boil; cover. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 10 minutes.
  3. Place pork on top of rice; cover. Simmer 6-8 minutes, until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro if desired.

yummy delicious........
THE RICE has just the right amount of spice to it! I added 1/2 cup of more of the beer (bud light platinum). It was perfect!! Will definitely make again
