- extra-virgin olive oil
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 pound pork stew meat (like pork butt or shoulder cut in 1 1/2 inch cubes)
- 1 cup white onion (diced)
- 2 green onions (chopped, white & green parts)
- 4 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander seed (freshly)
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 pound small red potatoes (quartered)
- 2 cups chiles (fresh green New Mexican, roasted, peeled, seeded and chopped*)
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped, divided)
- sea salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons chives (chopped)
- Add flour to rimmed plate. (like a pie plate). Season with 1 tsp each salt and pepper. Roll pork cubes in flour mixture until all sides are coated. Heat large skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add 2 tbsp olive oil and pork shaking off excess flour before adding to pan. (Note: do not crowd meat. Cubes should not be touching so do this in batches if necessary.) Saute the meat until golden brown on all sides. Remove from pan with slotted spoon and place in rimmed plate. Set aside
- Add 2 tbsp olive oil to skillet along with the white and green onion. Saute over medium high heat until the onions are soft and translucent (about 4 minutes). Add garlic and coriander and saute an additional minute.
- Add chicken broth, potatoes, 1 tsp each salt & pepper and the pork (including any accumulated juice in the plate). Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook for 11/2 hours or until meat is very tender and potatoes can be pierced easily with a knife. Add the green chiles and 1/8 cup cilantro and simmer for 25 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Serve with cilantro and chives sprinkled over top. Stew can be served as a main dish with hot corn or flour tortillas and a green salad or spooned over any of the dishes mentioned in the first paragraph.
- * If fresh chiles are out of season you can use frozen roasted chiles. Defrost and drain liquids (discard) before adding to stew. Suggested brands are located in the Resources section.
