Ingredients

  • 2 pounds pork loin

    2 onions, one halved, one diced

    2 cloves garlic, smashed

    2 Frontier Co-op Bay Leaves

    1 pound Russet potatoes (2-3), peeled and diced

    1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes

    1 tablespoon Frontier Co-op Ground Chipotle Pepper

    1 pound spicy chorizo sausage

    2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

    1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Thyme 

    1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Marjoram

  •  

     

Directions

    1. Place pork, halved onion, garlic and bay leaves in a large pot, cover with cool water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, about 40 minutes.

    2. Skim fat as it comes to the surface and discard. Remove pork from water and set aside to cool. When cool enough to handle, pull pork apart with hands or 2 forks. Set pulled pork aside. Reserve 1 cup cooking water, discard the rest.

    3. Meanwhile, place diced potatoes in cold, salted water, bring to a boil, and cook for about 20 minutes, until tender. Drain, set aside.

    4. In a sauté pan, cook diced onion for 3 to 5 minutes, until soft. Add pulled pork, tomatoes and chipotle powder; cook for about 5 minutes, until tomatoes start to break down. Add chorizo and potatoes, and stir well. Stir in vinegar, thyme and marjoram.

    5. Continue to cook until some of the liquid evaporates. Enjoy! 

     

    RECIPE TIPS:

    Serve on warm tortillas or as a salad topper. Spicy black beans and corn relish are nice compliments.
