   Trim and discard fat from pork; cut pork into 1-inch
   cubes. Heat oil in a wide 3 to 4 quart pan over
   medium-high heat. Add meat, a few pieces at a time,
   and cook until lightly browned on all sides. Lift out
   meat, transfer to a plate, and keep warm; reserve
   drippings in pan. Add onion to pan and cool, stirring,
   until soft (about 7 minutes). Return meat to pan and
   stir in garlic, tomatillos, chiles, marjoram, chopped
   cilantro, and water. Season to taste with salt. Cover
   and simmer until meat is tender when pierced (about 1
   hour). Skim off fat. Spoon into serving bowls and
   garnish with sour cream and cilantro sprigs.
