Category : Pork

Yield: 6 Servings

Ingredients (Help):
5 c Water
4 Dried ancho chilies
2 tb Extra virgin olive oil
3 lb Pork tenderloin; cut in 1
-1/2" cubes
4 c Hominy; 2 cans, drained and
4 lg Garlic cloves; minced
1 1/2 ts Ground cumin

Boil 1 cup of water. Put the chilies in a bowl, cover with the boiling
water, and soak 20 minutes. Reserve the soaking liquid. Stem and seed the
chilies. In a blender or food processor, pur?e them with the reserved
soaking liquid.

In a large pot, heat the oil over moderately high heat. Add about a third
of the pork. Brown well on all sides, about 8 minutes, and remove. Brown
the remaining meat in 2 more batches, adding oil if needed. Return the pork
to the pot with any accumulated juice. Stir in the chili pur?e, the hominy,
and remaining quart of water, garlic, cumin, oregano and salt.

Bring to a simmer over moderately high heat; reduce the heat and cook at a
bare simmer, partially covered, until meat is falling apart tender, about 3
hours. Serve topped with the red onion and cilantro leaves.
