Title: Pork in Chili Sauce
Yield: 1 Servings


2 lb Pork, cut into 1 1/2 inch
6 Chillies anchos
6 Chilies pasillas
2 Sprigs fresh marjoram -or-
1 ts Dried
2 Sprigs fresh thyme -or-
1 ts Dried
5 Whole cloves
1 1-inch piece of cinnamon
6 Peppercorns
6 Cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 sm White onion
1 ts Cumin seeds
1/4 c Vinegar
1/2 c Lard
3 tb Granulated sugar
2 Bay leaves

Here are a couple from the New York Times International Cookbook.

Place the pork in a saucepan and add salted water ot cover. Boil slowly
until the meat is tender but not overcooked. Drain and save the cooking
liquid. Remove the seeds & veins from the chilies and add hot water to
cover. Let stand fiftreen minutes then drain. Grind the marjoram, thyme,
cloves, cinnamon, peppercorns, garlic, onion, cumin seeds and salt to
taste. While grinding, add the vinegar to moisten. For this us a stone
molcajete (beats me! LOL) mortar and pestle, or electric blender. Grind the
chilies separately and add them to the spices.

Heat the lard in a fireproof earthenware casserole or a skillet & brown the
pork lightly. Drain the prok and set aside. In the same lard cook the spice
and chili mixture, stirring constantly and taking care that the mixture
does not burn. This should take about fifteen minutes. Add the sugar and
bay leaves. When the sauce is properly made, it is very thick and barely
slides off the sides of a wooden spoon. At that point, add the meat adn
stir briefly. Add one and one -half cups of the liquid in which the pork
cooked and simmer 10 minutes longer. Serve with tortillas and Salsa. Posted
