Directions

Method: Fry pork until no pink remains (do not brown the meat). Drain meat well. Place meat in large pot and add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 hour. (or longer). Thicken with cornstarch/cold water mixture, if necessary. Adjust seasonings and serve. Method 2 (superior stew) Cook a shoulder bone-in pork butt roast - enjoy some of it for dinner. Then, cut meat from the bone in large pieces. Place meat and bone in a pressure cooker and cover with chicken broth (Swanson low-sodium is good). Cook for 90 minutes. Alternately, put the meat and bone in a roasting pan and cover with the broth. Cover the pan with tin foil and braise until meat falls apart - approximately 3 hours. Remove meat and bone - shred the meat, cover and place on the side; discard the bone (Rover will love it). Melt 1/4 cup of butter (oil can also be used but not olive oil) in the pot. When the foaming subsides, add the chopped onion, garlic, cumin, and oregano. Simmer until the onions are translucent but not browned. Then, add 1/4 cup of flour to the onions and stir. Simmer, stirring constantly for a minute or two so that the flour loses its starchy flavour. Add the reserved broth, tomatoes, and potatoes and simmer until the potatoes are cooked but still firm. Add the reserved shredded pork and stir well. Adjust seasonings (potatoes tend to reduce the impact of seasonings)  and serve with cheese and sour cream.
