I live in Mexico and this is real close to how my wife makes it! We all ways garnish it with ( of all things) radish slices! I love it! tdemex * 3 cups cooked pork, cut into bite sized cubes (pork shoulder is traditional ; or other pork roast) * 2 tablespoons lard or bacon fat * 1 large onion, chopped * 2 cloves garlic, peeled and diced * 1 teaspoon cumin * 1/2 teaspoon oregano * 1/2 teaspoon black pepper * 2 (4 ounce) cans diced green chili peppers (or 2 fresh green chili’s seeded and diced) * 2 (15 ounce) cans white hominy, drained and rinsed * 1 1/2 cups cooked pinto beans (or 1- 15 oz. can pinto beans) (optional) * 1 quart pork stock or chicken stock * salt * 1/2 cup chopped cilantro (garnish) * lime wedge (garnish) We use radish slices also!

I've never heard of posole before so this is very interesting. From your recipe it sounds tasty with the onions, oregano and chilli in there. What is hominy and cilantro? I have never heard of these ingrediants before. I'm in the UK so perhaps we can't buy them here.

coriander is a seed you might be familiar with? If you grow the seed you get cilantro, it looks like parsley but the flavor is much different, it is widely used in Mexico! Hominy is corn that isn't germinated, and the kernels are large. In the southern part of the USA they grind it up and make grits, like in your country gruel for breakfast! Hope this helps! tdemex
