“This Mexican pork stew can be served without the pork rinds and pigs' feet, if desired, but it will not be authentic. Posole may be served as a main dish with tortillas or crackers. Posole can be found in the meat section if it is available in your area. If not available, hominy can be substituted in the same quantities but no rinsing or pre-cooking is needed. Add red chili sauce and leave the seeds in the peppers for a hotter/spicier taste. You can also add one can of tomatoes to enhance the flavor of the stew.” - by MARBALET
Original recipe yields 12 servings
- Place meat, pork rinds, and pork shanks in a large kettle and add about 5 quarts of water or enough to cover meat. Add approximately 1 tablespoon salt and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat for about 1 1/2 hours.
- Remove excess grease and set aside. Reserve liquid.
- Wash the posole very carefully until the water is clear so as to remove lime from kernels. Put in large kettle and cover with water. Boil until posole has popped.
- Mix meat, posole, rind, and shanks or pigs' feet. Add oregano, garlic, onion, and chile pods. Let simmer for about 1/2 hour.

The pork rinds and fe..." See moreet make it authentic, but you can omit these ingredients for ease of preparation. If you have trouble finding red chili, try www.buenofoods.com - a popular New Mexico Chili retailer. My mother made a huge batch of milder posole, but served extra red chili sauce on the side so people could adjust the spicyiness to their taste. You can also slow-cook posole in a large crockpot for 6-8 hours until the porkloin falls apart. Posole is sooo good on a cold winter's day. If you love spicy food, chili or the unique flavor of red chili, you should try this dish."
"the rciepe calls for canned hominy then gives directions for fresh hominy that you have to cook till it pops. If you use the canned you do not have to cook it till it pops. It is already cooked. You c..." See morean use eithe, the fresh tastes better, but takes longer."
