I have always had green chile stew with chunks of pork, so that is the first recipe I am going to try ..... as soon as I can find some green chile somewhere here in Kansas that is not in cans!

I just have a personal aversion to cooking with ground meat of any kind, but that's just me.

LOL!! Mine works well with any kind of cubed meat....I'm just too lazy to do all the extra work!! There is ONE meat I NEVER use....already-cubed stew meat. If I'm going to use beef I have to cut up, it's going to be sirloin, tenderloin, London broil...et al.

Cubed pork tastes better in any case, IMHO!

Default I like cooking so

cutting fresh meat isn't a problem. I agree with Cathy and I don't buy pre cut cubes. For the stew I usually get a lean 3 lb roast or something thick pork chops, like a butterfly cut. I've also used tenderloin for people who have to be careful of their fat intake.

Default Smoky Ranch Style Beans

This is from an old issue of Chile Pepper Magazine, which was once published in ABQ. It has been a favorite.

3 dried chipotle peppers, soaked 30 minutes in 1 cup of hot water
2 cups of dried pinto beans, soaked overnight, drain.
2 large tomatoes, chopped, or 1 14-oz can of diced tomatoes
1 chopped onion
2-3 minced cloves of garlic
1/4 tsp comino
1 tsp salt, optional

Cover soaked beans with fresh water. Add chiles, onions, garlic and comino. Cook until beans are soft. Add tomatoes and salt, cook a few minutes more.

You can also saute the onions, garlic and comino in a little oil/bacon grease....add water and beans to this and continue. It gives it a little more flavor.

Serve hot beans with jack cheese grated over.

Default Posole

1 cup of dried posole, OR 1 30-oz can of hominy
5-6 cups of water
1.5 lbs of finely diced (or ground) pork
2 chopped onions
2-3 minced cloves of garlic
6 TB ground red chile (pure chile powder with no additives works best).
1/2 tsp Mexican oregano
2 tsp salt
1-2 TB oil/lard/bacon grease

If using dried posole, cook in 5-6 cups of water about 5-6 hours until the kernels start to pop. Bring water level to at least 7 cups. If using canned hominy, just add with the rest of the ingredients.

Brown pork in oil, add onion/garlic/comino, and sauté until soft. Add remaining ingredients, simmer a couple of minutes, then scrape this into water with posole/hominy.

Bring to boil, lower heat, cover, and simmer 2 hours.

For those on low-fat, skip the oil/sauteeing part.

I got this recipe from the Albuquerque newspaper in 1970 when I lived there. It has been a staple in my kitchen ever since. I make it to go with soup, chili, etc.

Dah Diniilghaazh
(Navajo Fried Bread)

4 cups flour
4 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
water

Add enough water to dry ingredients to make soft dough that is not sticky. Work dough until pliable.

Divide into 8 equal portions.

Pat each portion between hands to make 7" circles. Poke a hole in center of each circle.

Fry in very hot oil in skillet until golden brown.

Serve hot ... with butter .... or cinnamon and sugar.
