Keeping with tradition for our slow-cooker Mexican-style pork and hominy stew recipe, we added the raw whole country-style ribs to the simmering liquid. Browning is not necessary here, as it creates a firm, crusty texture on the outside of each piece of meat, which in turn makes the shredding process more difficult. When choosing hominy for our Mexican-style pork and hominy stew recipe, we had two options: canned or freshly rehydrated hominy. Though the freshly rehydrated hominy produced superb results, the pozole with canned hominy was still really good and saved us a significant amount of prep time.

Serves 6 to 8

This traditional Mexican stew features tender shredded pork and hominy in a flavorful broth and is garnished with colorful raw vegetables. If you have trouble finding canned ­hominy, look for it in the international aisle of your ­supermarket. In addition to lime wedges, we recommend preparing other ­traditional garnishes of shredded lettuce, diced red onion, fresh cilantro, and sliced radish.
