  • ½ tsp dried mixed herbs

  • Heat the oil in a large casserole and brown the pork chunks all over. Add 2 litres of water, the onion, tomatoes, garlic bulb, salt and mixed herbs, then bring to the boil and skim the surface. Simmer on a low heat for about an hour. Add the chillies to the broth for 10 mins, then remove along with the onion, garlic and tomatoes.

Blend until smooth, then strain through a sieve back into the casserole. Add the hominy or polenta, stir well and simmer for 30 mins, then serve with flatbreads and salads.
