Easy Pork Posole

Rated as 4.54 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  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!

This is a fabulous quick Posole recipe. I have spent much more time and not had nearly as good results with other recipes. I did make a few alterations and additions however. I used one each lar...

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.

Can't make posole any easier than this, I did add some cumin to up the flavor profile a little. I liked the addition of cornmeal to make it a little thicker. The seniors loved this one

I followed the recipe exactly except after cooking for 30 minutes I covered it and cooked it another 30 minutes. This made the pork more tender. Excellent recipe! Even better warmed up as lef...

Just what I was craving, and easy to prepare. Yum!

I used green bell pepper instead of serrano so that my child would like it and ended up removing the only kick in the dish. It was delicious but a little bland because of the substitute. I overc...

Very good. Only change I made was instead of corn meal I used 1/8 cup masa harana. Next time will add more hominy.

I added more cumin and chicken broth, added some chili powder, substituted chilies for peppers, and added frozen corn as well as the hominy. Very tasty soup!
