Chili Verde Pork Posole for #FoodieExtravaganza

Foodie ExtravaganzaFor all my vegan friends, please avert your eyes. It's National Pork Month! For everyone else, read on because this was delicious!

Event hostess writes: Pork is among one of the most versatile meats we can work with... from skewers, to stews, to side dishes and main dishes... from bacon, to chops, jowls, ribs and roasts, pork can emphasize any flavor. Let your creativity soar this month as we celebrate National Pork Month. 

Posting day is always the first Wednesday of the month. If you are a blogger and you're interested in joining in the fun, visit us at our Facebook Foodie Extravaganza page. You can also visit our past party submissions on our Pinterest Foodie Extravaganza board .

#FoodieExtravaganza's PorkFest...

Chile Verde Pork Posole


  • 1 lb tomatillos, husked, washed, and dried
  • 1 serrano pepper, halved and deseeded
  • 1 jalapeno, haved and deseeded
  • 1 onion, peeled and quartered
  • olive oil
  • 1 lb lean pork, cut into 1 1/2" cubes
  • 1/2 C flour
  • 1 T ground cumin
  • olive oil
  • 1 C onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 C celery, chopped
  • 1/2 C diced carrots
  • 3 cloves garlic, mashed
  • 2 C hominy (posole), drained
  • 3 C chicken stock or water
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 C fresh cilantro leaves, chopped (divided)
  • lime wedges for serving

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. On a parchment-lined baking sheet lay the tomatillos, peppers, and onion. Drizzle with olive oil and roast for 30 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes. 

Mix the flour and ground cumin together in a medium mixing bowl. Roll the pork cubes until they are completely covered in flour.

In a Dutch oven or souppot, heat a splash of olive oil. Add the pork and brown on all sides. Add in onion, celery, carrots, garlic, hominy, and chicken stock. Bring to a boil. In the meantime, blend the roasted tomatillos, onions, and peppers. Pour the chile verde into the pot. Bring to a boil, again, reduce heat to a simmer and cover

Keep at a simmer and cook for at least 90 minutes. The pork should be tender. Season to taste with freshly ground salt and freshly ground pepper. Fold in 1/4 C chopped cilantro.

To serve, ladle into individual serving bowls. Garnish with more fresh cilantro and a lime wedge.
