Since I couldn't find the recipe that I like so well, I just sort of made this one up based on several that I read online.
Country style pork ribs
1 can Swanson chicken broth + 1 can water
1 diced onion
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small can chopped green chiles
2 large cans hominy--undrained
2 cans diced tomatoes---I added those later, see recipe instructions below
1 1/2 tsp Cumin
1 1/2 tsp Oregano
I was in a hurry to get this cooked yesterday so I used my pressure cooker. It works just find in a slow cooker too. You'll have better flavor if you brown your pork before you add the other ingredients.
Here's how I prepared it yesterday.
I browned the ribs in hot oil in the pressure cooker. Added onions, garlic, chicken broth, chiles and spices. Set the pressure at 15 lbs. and cooked for 30 minutes. I let the pressure cooker set until the pressure was released.
I removed the ribs from the broth and pulled the meat off the bones, removed as much fat as possible and then put the meat back into the broth.
I tasted the broth, added additional Cumin and Oregano--maybe 1/2 tsp each and the hominy. I let it simmer for about 30 minutes before serving it with some corn bread.
It just didn't taste 100% right. So, this afternoon I added 2 cans of diced tomatoes and a let it heat thoroughly. We like it so much better with the tomatoes added.
This made a BIG pot of Posole. I'll probably freeze a container with enough in it for another meal or two.
Oh are you freezing me a container??
I thought you didn't like hominy!
If I freeze it for you, you'll have to come up and get it when our markers arrive!
