Ingredients

3 pounds boneless pork shoulder (tied with kitchen twine if necessary)
1 tablespoon canola oil (or other neutral-flavored oil)
salt
pepper
19 ounces enchilada sauce (mild or medium red, OR 2 1/4 cups red enchilada sauce*)
1 white onion (small, cut into 12 wedges, slice through the root end so that each wedge has a bit of the root holding it together)
12 ounces small red potatoes (cut into 1/2-inch wedges)
15 ounces hominy (drained*)
1/4 cup queso fresco (or other soft cheese**, crumbled, optional)
cilantro sprigs (for garnish, optional)

Directions

1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2Meanwhile, season the pork with salt and pepper. In an oven-ready skillet, braising pan, or Dutch oven large enough to comfortably hold the pork with the lid on, warm the oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until well-browned on all sides, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the meat to a plate or platter and set aside.
3Add the enchilada sauce to the skillet and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits (careful—it may splatter). Return the pork to the skillet, along with any accumulated juices, and return to a boil. Cover the skillet, place it in the oven, and cook for 1 hour.
4Turn the meat over and add the onion and potatoes to the skillet, submerging them in the liquid. Cover and cook until the vegetables start to soften, about 30 minutes.
5Add the hominy, cover, and cook until the pork is tender but not falling apart, the onion and potatoes are tender, and the hominy is heated through, about 15 minutes. Remove the skillet from the oven, set aside, letting the meat rest in the liquid for 15 minutes.
6Remove the meat from the skillet, remove the kitchen twine, if necessary, and slice the meat across the grain. Arrange on plates or a platter with the vegetables alongside. Drizzle with a little sauce. Sprinkle with the queso fresco and garnish with the cilantro, if using. Serve the remaining sauce at the table.
