Author Notes:

Dog days of summer again and I’m in no mood to stand over a hot grill or heat the house by turning on the oven so crock pot here I come Posole for casual company dinner.


Serves: 8

  • 3 pounds salt and pepper seasoned browned pork butt cubes, about 2 inch pieces or a leaner cut if you prefer
  • 1 onion ¼ inch dice, sautéed in pan after pork
  • 10 ounces salsa verde (I’ve used green enchilada sauce)
  • 10 ounces 1/4 inch diced roasted green chiles
  • 1 (28 ounce) can of hominy, drained
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin, heaping teaspoon
  • 1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/3 cup New Mexico chile powder
  • 32 ounces chicken stock or broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Place browned cubed pork, 3 lbs in a slow cooker with onions, hominy, oregano, garlic, chile powder, cumin, paprika, chicken broth, roasted chiles. Slow cook for 6-8 hours (until the pork is fork tender), checking the moisture level in case you need to add more stock.
  2. Serve with Cornbread and garnishes of red sliced radishes, lime wedges, red or white onions, fresh cilantro, crushed chile pequin and chile pequin entero (really hot), and a mix of sliced red and green cabbage
  3. I forgot to mention that I season the pork with some of the seasonings and marinate overnight. Deglaze the meat and onion pan with 1/4 cup tequila
