Heat oil in large skillet; add pork. Sear pork on both sides on medium-high heat just until brown, about 1 minutes on each side. Remove from skillet and cover loosely with foil.

Add garlic and onions to skillet. Cook and stir until tender, about 2 minutes, scraping up brown bits from bottom of skillet. 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.

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.

Serves 6.

*Chicken broth or water may be substituted for the beer in this recipe. If using water only, additional salt and pepper may be needed.
