Pork Posole

Traditionally a long-simmered stew, this Mexican-inspired stew is quick and easy, thanks to canned hominy. Searing the pork loin in the pot before making the stew gives you a great base of flavors so the stew seems as if it indeed simmered all afternoon. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve with warm tortillas on the side.

Serves 6

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3/4 pound boneless pork loin chops, trimmed of fat and diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoon water, divided
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 14-ounce c reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 2 15-ounce c hominy, rinsed (see Ingredient note)
  • 2 4-ounce ca diced green chiles
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 tablespoon lime juice

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook, stirring once, until just browned on one or two sides, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate using a slotted spoon.

Step 2

Reduce heat to medium-low; add onion and 2 tablespoons water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft and golden brown and any moisture has evaporated, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in garlic, cumin and coriander and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Whisk in the remaining 2 cups water, broth and cornmeal. Bring to a simmer over high heat, stirring often. Add hominy, chiles, pepper and salt; return to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring often, until the onion is very soft and the mixture is thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in lime juice to taste.

Step 3

Return the pork and any accumulated juices to the pot; cook, stirring occasionally, until the pork is just cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes.
