Pork & Hominy Stew (Posole) from Instant Pot Fast & Easy
Active Time: 10 minutes | Function: Pressure/Manual (High) | Release: Natural | Total Time: 1 hour | Servings: 8 | Dietary Considerations: Gluten-Free
I used a few shortcuts in this posole recipe. Rather than follow the traditional method of toasting the chiles, then soaking and blending them, I used ancho chile powder and canned chipotle chiles for a quick, very flavorful, but not overly spicy blend. A bowlful of comfort, this stew will quickly become a favorite in your house.
1 pound pork shoulder, cut into bite-size cubes1 yellow onion, chopped1 (25-ounce) can hominy, undrained3/4 cup water3 or 4 garlic cloves, chopped1 to 3 canned chipotle chiles in adobo, chopped, with 1 to 2 teaspoons adobo sauce from the can (about 1/2 small can) 2 teaspoons ancho chile powder, plus more if needed 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1 teaspoon salt, plus more if needed
1. In the Instant Pot, combine the pork, onion, hominy and its juices (see Note), water, garlic, chipotle chiles, adobo sauce, ancho chile powder, cumin, oregano, and salt.
2. Secure the lid on the pot. Close the pressure-release valve. Select MANUAL and set the pot at HIGH pressure for 30 minutes. At the end of the cooking time, allow the pot to sit undisturbed until the pressure has released.
3. Check the pork for doneness. Taste and season with additional ancho chile powder and/or salt as needed. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
If you like your hominy to have a little bite, I suggest you put in half the can while cooking so it flavors and thickens a bit, and save the other half to add after cooking.
