My Grandmother finally agreed to teach me how to make home made tamales and green chili with pork last year - it's back breaking work but tastes so much better then the restaurant variety.

 

These are just sample ingredients from the web, my Grandmother doesn't actually use precise ingredients, she's old school with her tin cup and pinches of this and that.

Ingredients:

  • 7lb pork roast, prefer boneless
  • 1/3 cup chili powder
  • 96 oz. chicken broth ******(You can use the broth from the pork roast)
  • 5 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. chicken base
  • 3 Tbsp. Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon ******(Yuck - don't add cinnamon)
  • 3/4 tsp. sugar ***** (No sugar you want spicy not sweet)
  • 8 Tbsp. flour
  • 3/4 cup cold water

Here is a video I found, because it would take too long to go into detail.

 

Green Chili or Chili Verde is also great on smothered breakfast burritos....

Original recipe makes 6 servingsChange Servings
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 1/2 pounds cubed pork stew meat

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 (4.5 ounce) can diced green Chile peppers, drained

  • 1/2 (3.5 ounce) can chopped jalapeno peppers

  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped

  • 5 tablespoons tomato sauce

  • 3 1/2 cups water

  • onion salt to taste

  • garlic salt to taste

  • salt and black pepper to taste

Check All Add to Shopping List

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in cubed pork, and cook until nicely browned and cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove skillet from heat, and allow to cool briefly.
  2. Sprinkle flour over pork. With a wooden spoon, stir pork to coat, scraping the bottom of the skillet to loosen browned bits. Add chile peppers, jalapenos, and onions. Stir in tomato sauce and water. Season to taste with onion salt, garlic salt, and salt and pepper.
  3. Return skillet to medium heat. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove cover, and cook 10 minutes more.

Found the recipe -- thought I'd share it with you guys.

Chop Suey (my grandma's recipe)

 

Ingredients list

 

Beef and Pork

Chinese Vegetables
Bean Sprouts
Water Chestnuts
Celery

Onions

Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce

Water

Brown Sugar

Olive Oil, Vegetable Oil or Grapeseed Oil (the latter is really good, since it has a higher cooking point)

 



Slice beef and pork into chunks.
Add oil and brown -- then put 1 and a half tablespoons of brown sugar in, then carmelize it.

Take 2-3 cups of celery
1 and a half cups of onions

Add to meat and saute a bit and add enough water to cook until meat is done -- then add at end -- 1/2 before done (it takes around 30 mins., so add some around 15 mins.):


Chinese Vegetables
Bean Sprouts
Water Chestnuts
Add 1/2 a bottle to a whole bottle of Reduced sodium soy sauce.



Also, if anyone needs any help in regards to this, let me know. I got this recipe years ago and a friend of mine helped to clarify it, so if there's anything you guys don't understand... I'll do my best to straighten it out.

With this recipe it's a trial and error thing. It takes practice to get it to turn out well. But it's worth it.

Olive Oil

 





Box9 I would never use Olive oil in any Asian cuisine whether it be Chinese, Indian or Japanese.... not just because of it's slightly lower smoking point, but because it's prominent flavour doesn't lend itself well to the ingredients associated with this type of cuisine. You're better off using an oil with a more neutral flavour.   Smiley Wink
