    Pozole Verde with Pork, No Chicken

    I have been dying for the longest time to make pozole. The fact that I didn't really know what it was didn't stop me. Okay, I knew it was some sort of stew, made with pork and hominy (mote). I've bought hominy a few times, but somehow used it for something else instead of my beloved pozole. I've also had pork before. So, today I decided to look it up and really make it. Most recipes I saw used pork shoulder and cooked for 3 hours of something. Hmmmm. I really only want to make one bowl. For myself. I have to pre-try stuff before trying to give it to the mister. He sure is picky for someone who eats everything. I also made some recaito and salsa verde and wanted to use those in my pozole. Most recipes I found on the internet for pozole verde included half a chicken or something. Didn't I just say I only wanted to make a little bit of it for myself? I decided to make a short-cut version which came out AMAZING! Well worth the wait.

    Short-Cut Pozole with only Pork, no Chicken!


    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 pound pork chops, bones removed and cut into 2-inch chunks
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 4 cups chicken broth
    • 4 tablespoons recaito
    • 1/4 cup salsa verde
    • 1 14-ounce can hominy (drained) or use a cup or so of frozen pre-cooked hominy
    • salt
    • freshly ground black pepper

    Optional Garnishes:

    • sliced radish
    • chopped cilantro
    • chopped oregano
    • diced avocado


    Heat oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Brown pork. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds. Stir in chicken broth and recaito, cover, and simmer until pork is tender, about 1 hour. When you can "cut" the pork with a wooden spoon, it is done.

    Add salsa verde and hominy. Simmer 5 minutes or so then season with salt and pepper to taste.

    Ladle stew into serving dishes and garnish how you please.

    Serves 4.

    Looks so yummy you need to try the Asian local cuisines of locally fried sour pork recipe soup. This has been used in varied recipes all over Asia only slightly changed. The soup is made up of seasoned meat creating the perfect combination that will leave you wanting more.
