  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.

This stew was absolutely delicious! We halved the recipe and used a fresh jalapeño and two roasted Hatch green chilies.

I cut the recipe in half and added 1.5 cartons of mushrooms and it still made about 15+ servings. Very hearty, I served it with sliced avocado and a blob of sour cream in top.

Perfectly balanced—distinctive Mexican flavor in a hearty stew. I made a kosher version by skipping the pork and lard and using shredded chicken instead.

This is delicious! I added sweet potatoes instead of white and used fresh tomatillos. Very flavorful, and my guests really liked it!
