Directions

  1. Melt lard in a large pot over high heat. Stir in cubed pork and coriander seeds. Cook until the pork has browned, about 10 minutes. Stir in the onions, potatoes, carrots, garlic, tomatillos, green chiles, jalapeno peppers, nopalitos, and hominy. Season with oregano and cumin seed. Add water if the mixture seems too dry.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the pork is tender, about 45 minutes. To serve, ladle the stew into serving bowls and sprinkle with crumbled cheese and chopped cilantro.

I made a huge batch of this and shared it with friends who all raved about it. I did make a few modifications. I used oil not lard and added canned/drained pinto beans and a can of rotelle (not drained). I lived in New Mexico for 9 years and this stew is very authentic.

I make this when I have company, everyone loves it. I leave out the japalenos and add fresh poblano peppers instead. This results in a much milder version (usually, sometimes poblanos can surprise you) that my husband prefers.

Excellent. Leave it on the stove over night and the meat becomes extra tender.

Originally I gave this recipe 3 stars but my husband and son said it was definatly a 4 though I wasn't as wild about it as they were. I halved the recipe and omitted the jalapeno's just because I'm not a fan of spicy, the queso fresco was delish on top. Anyhoo, since these are not ingredients I usually keep in my pantry I don't know if I would go through the trouble of making this again but on the otherhand I'm sure it is a fabulous recipe with some practice.
