How to Make

Season pork ribs with salt & pepper, and add to the crock pot, along with the onion and chicken broth.

Cook on high for 4-6 hours until ribs are fork tender. When cooking is complete, remove ribs from broth and shred meat when cool enough to handle.

Strain the broth to remove onion and any remaining small bits of meat and fat. Return broth and meat back to the slow cooker insert.

Add hominy to the broth and pork, and warm in the slow cooker on low, till soup is warmed all the way through.

Posole Garnishes

Authentic garnishes typically include radishes, cabbage, limes, dried oregano and New Mexico chili powder. Feel free to add others such as cilantro, avocado and diced onions.
