DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Meanwhile, when the meat is cool, shred it using your fingers. Discard any gristle. Put meat back into the pot.
  • Before serving, season with lime juice; salt and pepper if desired.
  • 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.
