Pork & Hominy Stew

Pork & Hominy Stew

This is a great rainy day recipe. This recipe is a morph from a good friend & co-worker’s Pork & Hominy Stew recipe. Main difference, his has beer.  It’s amazing. But for a health and fitness blog, I couldn’t post a recipe with beer broth in good conscience. It’s full of good green veggies and a load of protein. These ingredients inside a slow cooker or crock pot absolutely cannot miss. Its sure to leave you with a fair amount of leftovers, too.


Pork shoulder (bone in)

Fire Roasted Diced tomatoes (2 cans)

Hominy (2 cans)

Beef broth (1 large box)

1 yellow onion (chopped)

4 garlic cloves (minced)

1 box of mushrooms (sliced)

1 bushel of green onions (chopped)

1 bushel of cilantro (chopped)

2 pasilla peppers (chopped)

2 red bell peppers (chopped)

2 jalepeno peppers (sliced)

1 tsp cumin

2 tbsp chile powder

2 tsp paprika

1 tsp Sea Salt

Juice from 1 lime

Optional: Brown rice (to serve soup over)

Preparation: Wash and dry the pork shoulder. Cut the shoulder into large chunks, remove the bone and trim the fat. In a large pot, sautee the onions and garlic with some olive oil. When the onions are translucent, add in the chunks of pork and lightly brown them. Once browned, pour the beef broth and fire roasted diced tomatoes into the pot and stir. Add in all spices, lime juice, a handful of chopped cilantro and the jalepeno peppers. Stir all ingredients into the pot, cover and bring to a boil. Once the mixture is boiling, turn heat to as low as possible and slow cook the mixture for approximately 4-5 hours, stirring once per hour. When the meat is very soft and falling apart when you use a fork, pour in the pasilla peppers, mushrooms, red bell peppers, hominy and stir into the soup. This is also a good time to start the rice, because the soup is almost ready! Once the vegetables are cooked through, the pork and hominy soup is ready to be served! Serve over a cup of brown rice or leave the rice out, your choice! Garnish with cilantro and green onions.
