My easy Slow Cooker Mexican Pork Stew is an awesome weeknight meal. Loaded with protein and veggies.
This is the 12th recipe in my yearlong series “26 Weeks Of Slow Cooker Meals” Make sure you check out all my easy slow cooker meals at my Crock Pot Recipe page.
Can you believe Cinco De Mayo is only a month away. That means summer is almost here. I had to brake down and mow my grass for the first time this year. That means for the next three months I will be mowing at least two times a week. The first grass mow also signals the start of spring soccer season. So needless to say I will be in need of more slow cooker recipes.
There are lots of version of Slow Cooker Mexican Pork Stew on the web. I was going to call this recipe Pork Pozole but to make it authentic you need to use hominy. Corn hominy is used as a thickener for Pozole which is similar to a gumbo. My Slow Cooker Mexican Pork Stew is thickened with the addition of black beans.
Feel free to add hominy or any other ingredients you might have in your pantry. That’s the beauty of many of my slow cooker recipes, you can add or take away any ingredients you like or have in the house. Simple, healthy and tasty is the way to go to give your family a great weeknight meal.
To make Slow Cooker Mexican Pork Stew simply remove excess fat from your pork. Cube and season with cumin, salt and pepper. Throw it in the slow cooker.
Toss in the vegetables, beans, tomatoes and the chicken broth. Cook on low for about 5 hours. Serve as is or over white or Spanish rice.
