    Debbie R.'s Note:

    From The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook. I haven't made it yet. They also call for using 1/2 t. salt when cooking the onions. I don't see the point and wish to avoid the sodium, so that was left out. Their method uses an oven-proof Dutch oven I'll probably just cook mine stovetop.

    1. 1
      Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position. Heat oven to 300. Heat oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add onions; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, oregano and chili powder. Cook about 30 seconds. Add pork. Coat with the spices. Cook until meat is no longer pink, about 6 minutes.
    2. 2
      Stir in tomatoes with their juice and the broth. Bring to a simmer. Cover. Transfer the pot to the oven. Cook until meat is tender, about 1.5 hours.
    3. 3
      Remove pot from oven. Transfer the pork to a cutting board. Stir the hominy into the broth. Bring to a simmer on the stovetop. Cook uncovered, for 20 minutes, removing any fat that rises to the top.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, when the meat is cool, shred it using your fingers. Discard any gristle. Put meat back into the pot.
    5. 5
      Before serving, season with lime juice; salt and pepper if desired.
    6. 6
      TO MAKE AHEAD: It can be cooled, covered and chilled for up to 4 days or frozen for up to 1 month. Reheat over low, adding more water or broth to adjust consistency. Season with additional lime juice before serving.

      I cooked mine on the stovetop, and we really enjoyed it. The hominy tastes almost like beans. Whether or not to add the salt really depends on how salty your stock is. I wasn't sure about whether the tomatoes were fresh or canned, but figured because of the odd measurement that it meant a 14 1/2 ounce can of tomatoes. I also added a diced fresh Roma tomato. Don't omit the lime juice; it really brightens up the flavor. Thanks for posting! Made for the Lively Lemon Lovelies, ZWT8.
