This came in the mail along with an advertisement. It sounds simple for a Pozole recipe, but I haven't yet tried it.

We love a good pot of pozole here, and this was no disappointment! I was trying to use up what I had in the house, so I defrosted a big bag of country-style pork ribs for the meat (I forgot to put the weight on the bag, so I'm pretty sure that I used more than 4lbs). Because the ribs weren't boneless, I had to strain the cooked meat out of the broth, remove the fat and bones, and coarsely shred the meat before adding it back into the broth. I do recommend that you add more hominy if you use extra meat, because we found that it needed more (not detracting from the recipe, that was totally my fault for using I-don't-know-how-much meat, lol). We used all the garnishes except the cabbage because I didn't have any. DH actually enjoyed this so much that he ate it for dinner three nights in a row, which was a relief, since there was quite a bit of soup for only two people (although I'm sure my puppy would've gladly snagged a contributing slurp or two had he been tall enough to reach it). Unfortunately, I didn't get a photo of this -- I made the soup and prepped the garnishes, but left it for DH to assemble in his bowl at night while I was at work. I took some to work with me for dinner, but I really didn't want to post a pic of my soup in cheezy Gladware lol. Oh well, maybe next time! Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring '10 :)
