DIRECTIONS

  • Most recipes tell you to remove the seeds.
  • Don't!
  • Melt the shortening and stir in the flour.
  • Heat until browned; don't let it burn.
  • Crumble the chiles finely; toss them in the pot.
  • Add the garlic and oregano; stir.
  • Slowly stir in the water, and heat.
  • Simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Line an oven proof glass pan with foil.
  • Place the pork in the pan; cover with the chile.
  • Cover the pan.
  • Let the pork sit in the chile in the refrigerator 24 hours.
  • Bake the carned adovada in a 300 degree oven for 3 hours, with foil on.
  • Stir occasionally.
  • Add water if necessary to keep pork from burning or sticking; it should be moist but not runny when done.
  • Pork should be very, very tender and falling apart when finished.
  • If necessary, cook a little longer.
