New Mexican Pork and Green Chili Stew

New Mexican Pork and Green Chili Stew

Yield: Makes about 14 cups, serving 6 to 8

Ingredients

  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 8 garlic cloves
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 1/2 pounds boneless pork shoulder, trimmed of excess fat and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 5 pounds frozen roasted New Mexican green chilies*, thawed, peeled if necessary, seeded, and chopped (wear rubber gloves)
  • 7 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds boiling potatoes

Instructions

  1. In a large heavy kettle cook the onions and 6 of the garlic cloves, minced, in the oil over moderate heat, stirring, until the onions are softened.
  2. Add the pork, the chilies, the water, and the salt, and simmer the mixture, uncovered, adding more water if necessary to keep the pork barely covered, for 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Stir in the potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces, making sure they are covered by the cooking liquid, and simmer the mixture, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes, or until the pork and the potatoes are tender.
  4. Stir in the remaining 2 garlic cloves, minced, and salt to taste and simmer the stew for 5 minutes. The stew may be frozen or made 3 days in advance, cooled, uncovered, and kept covered and chilled.
