Full of flavor with a thin broth and large chunks of pork. This is also very easy to prepare.
  • 2 lbs pork loin, cut in 1½ inch chunks
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1½ cups chopped onion
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp mustard powder
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes
  • 2 14 oz cans chicken broth
  • 1½ cups medium hot diced green chiles (or 1 cup mild, ½ cup hot)
  1. Blend the salt, pepper, mustard, and oregano in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil and butter in a large pot, then brown the pork until lightly browned.
  3. Add the onions and cook about 5 minutes until softened, then add spices and garlic and cook while stirring another 5 minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes, green chiles, and chicken broth and stir well.
  5. Either cover the pot and simmer on low for 2 hours, or transfer to a crockpot and cook on low for 2 to 4 hours.
  6. Serve!
