G found a bag of dried hominy in the pantry and suggested that I make Posole. Thumbing through my trusty cookbook collection, I found a simple and easy recipe for making this pork and hominy stew. I had all the ingredients (Go Figure) but one set back was time to soak the dried hominy. I chose a quick soak method which I do not suggest. Overall the stew was tasty but suffered because of the texture of the hominy which I did not get softened/soaked enough.despite a long cook time.
I used some frozen smoked pulled pork instead of cubes of pork as suggested by the recipe. I also used skinless chicken thighs instead of a whole chicken. Other ingredients included 1 whole diced onion, 4 cloves garlic minced, 1 tsp of cumin and oregano, water, and dried Mexican chili.
I made a red chili sauce from onion, garlic, soaked Mexican chilies pureed with a 1/2 cup water then sauteed in olive oil.
