Monica's Pozole

Submitted by: MONIBARR77

Introduction

Mexican Soup made with pork and hominey. Our family always made this when we were having a family gathering. This is enough to feed an army! Mexican Soup made with pork and hominey. Our family always made this when we were having a family gathering. This is enough to feed an army!

Ingredients

    This makes a huge pot. I buy pork shoulder (butt) when it's on sale. I also buy the extra large can of hominey. Reserve some chili flake, cilantro, onion (chop it), and oregano for garnish.
    Pork shoulder 5 lbs(bones are ok, they add flavor)
    Hominey 108 oz. can
    4T canola or vegetable oil
    Onion 1 whole, peeled and quartered
    Onion 1c chopped
    Corriander seeds 1T (optional)
    Celery 2 stalks course chopped
    3 cloves garlic
    Oregano 4T divided
    Red Pepper flakes 2T divided
    Salt 1T
    Black Pepper .5 T
    Bay leaves, 2
    2 gallons cold water (may substitute chicken or vegetable broth)

Directions

Cut pork roast into large 2" chunks, sprinkle with salt and pepper
Heat large soup pot over medium heat, add oil
Brown meat on all sides
Add quartered onion, celery, garlic, and water to pot, increase heat to high
Add 2T oregano, 1T pepper flakes, corriander seeds, and bay leaves to pot.
Cover and bring to boil.
Reduce heat to low, simmer 4 hours or longer
Serve soup with remaining garnishes on top. Our family usually serves our pozole with corn tostadas on the side for texture. We break the tostadas up like chips and dip them into the soup.
