2 lbs. boneless pork shoulder blade (butt) roast, cubed
2 cups canned white hominy, drained and rinsed
1 tsp. salt
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. chopped dried Mexican oregano
1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 1/2 cups Red Enchilada Sauce (see link below) or canned sauce
2 1/2 cups water
5 green onions, green parts only, chopped
5–7 radishes, sliced
1/2 cup minced cilantro
2 limes, each cut into 5 wedges


  1. Place the pork chunks in a large pot. Add enough water to cover the pork. Bring to boiling over medium-high heat. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pork is evenly browned and juices and water have evaporated, about 1 hour.
  2. Stir in the hominy, salt, garlic, oregano, cumin, and enchilada sauce, mixing well.
  3. Slowly stir in the water. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until completely heated through.
  4. Ladle posole into bowls and garnish each portion with green onions, radishes, cilantro, and a wedge of lime.
