I wanted to find out if you would care to join me in the kitchen today for Tasty Tuesday! Today’s recipe is a very tasty stew made with pork and poblano and anaheim chiles. I like to prepare easy dishes and this one fits the bill! The aromas during cooking will have everyone’s stomachs growling as it cooks! Ready to head into the kitchen?
1/4 cup vegetable oil
4 1/2#’s boneless pork shoulder
Salt and pepper
10 garlic cloves
4 large carrots
2 poblano chiles
1 anaheim chile
2 bay leaves
48 oz. chicken stock
6 Roma tomatoes
First, lets get everything cut up. Start with the pork. Cut the meat into 1″ cubes. Set aside.
Now let’s get working on the vegetables. Beginning with the garlic, smash the cloves, remove the skin and trim the bottom. Add to a mixing bowl. Peel the carrots, cut into four sections, then cut into quarters. Add to the bowl. On to the chiles: Cut the cap off the chiles, then cut the chile in half. Remove the seeds and veins. Then cut the chile in the middle horizontally, and slice into thin strips and add to the bowl. Juice the two limes and add the juice to the vegetables. Add in the two bay leaves. Mix it up!
On to the tomatoes. Cut the stem end out of the tomatoes, then cut the tomatoes in quarters.
Now that every thing is ready, let’s get to cooking! Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Add the oil to a cast iron dutch oven. Heat over medium heat and when it is hot add half the pork and brown. When done, removed from the pot and set aside. Brown the remaining pork. When this is done, add the first batch back to the pot.
Now add in the vegetables. Mix it up and then add in the broth.
Doesn’t that look good? Now grab your bowl of tomatoes and tuck them in around the meat.
Bring this to a boil. Now turn the heat off, cover the pot with a snug fitting lid and place this on the second to the lowest rack in the oven for 3 hours. Stir once per hour. Here it is when it is almost done.Doesn’t that look good? The aromas are making my stomach growl! :)
Time’s up! Pull your pot out of the oven. Get out some bowls and serve this baby up!
You can serve this over rice or, if you prefer, mashers! To kick it up a notch, you can dress this up with a bit of cilantro!
Hey, thanks for dropping by for Tasty Tuesday! Have a great day and be well! ^..^
