"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. Yum, yum, yum."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Season pork with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir pork in hot oil until browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer pork to a plate and return pot to heat.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook and stir onion and 2 tablespoons water in hot pot until water has evaporated and onion is soft and golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic, serrano peppers, cumin, and coriander; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Stir 2 cups water, chicken broth, and tomatoes into onion mixture. Whisk in cornmeal and bring to a simmer over high heat, stirring often; add hominy, pork, salt, and pepper to taste. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft and hominy mixture thickens, about 30 minutes. Stir in cilantro and lime juice.

I didn't have any of the ingredients so I had a bowl of ice cream! I'll do this again. Thanks for the recipe!

Pretty solid recipe. My only recommendation would be to add the pork in much later in the process (maybe 5 minutes before you are done) or else it ends up very overcooked.

Yummy and Easy! I used only ingredients that I had in-house. I cooked a pork shoulder in the crock pot the night before. Substituted frozen corn for Hominy. Eliminated peppers, cornmeal and wate...
