Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle pork with salt and black pepper. Cook bacon in a large Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp and well browned; transfer to paper towel-lined plate, reserving 1/4 cup drippings in pot.

  • Brown pork pieces in bacon drippings over medium-high heat, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Work in batches; transfer browned pieces to a plate as they brown. Transfer all pieces back to pot, along with accumulated juices. Stir in onion, serrano pepper, broth, and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low or low to maintain a low simmer. Simmer, covered, 1 hour.

  • Stir in beans and cactus; simmer, uncovered, until heated through, 20 minutes more. Stir in bacon. Serve over rice and garnish with avocado and cilantro.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute 2 1/2 pound pork shoulder, trimmed of excess fat, for the 2 pounds of pork ribs.

Use canned nopalitos that contain vinegar, serrano pepper, chopped onion, and salt (such as Dona Maria(R)).

I made the recipe as is and my family really enjoyed it. The next time I make it I am going to try to convert it to an Instant Pot recipe to cut down on the cooking time. Read More

Deeeeeelicious and oh soooo good. So easy to put together. My wife and I used precooked pork meet that we had in the freezer so we didn t have to cook the pork for an hour. We just heated in the precooked pork for 20 minutes in the bacon drippings along with the other ingredients as directed in step #2 of the recipe. We later added the beans and nopales as directed and heated for an Additional 20 minutes. We garnished with avocado slices and crumbled bacon. Oooh so good! Read More
