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.

Recipe Ingredients for Pork Posole

1 tablespoon canola oil
2 pounds boneless pork loin chops, trimmed of fat and diced
1 large onion, diced
2 cups water, plus 2 tablespoons
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground coriander
14 ounce reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup cornmeal
30 ounce hominy, rinsed
8 ounce diced green chiles
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoons lime juice

Recipe Directions for Pork Posole

  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.

  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.

  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.
