Instant Pot Mexican Pork Stew – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Before turkey day arrives, you still have guests to feed and my Instant Pot Mexican Pork Stew is hardy, savory and a cinch to put together.

Using leftover shredded pork shoulder or diced fresh pork cubes works beautifully in the recipe.  I’d call it more of a “dump” recipe because you layer in the ingredients and put a lid on top for a half hour, or so and dinner is done.  The flavors are Mexican inspired and create a one-pot harmony in minutes.

Hominy is one of those items that is underutilized in my opinion and creates texture and infuses corn taste into a good pot of stew.  It’s perfect ladled into bowls and served with a corn muffin or tortillas.  The leftovers freeze beautifully for another date as well.
