Classic posole, a delicious slow-simmered Mexican pork stew often reserved for special occasions, is typically a time-consuming labor of love. But this one gives you all the comfort and flavor of the old-world version made in your slow cooker.

How to Make It

Sauté pork in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 6 minutes. Place pork in a 7-qt. slow cooker. Stir onion, next 8 ingredients, and 2 cups stock into slow cooker with pork. Microwave remaining 2 cups stock in a microwave-safe bowl on HIGH 3 minutes or until boiling. Add dried chiles, and let stand 10 minutes. Remove and discard tops of chiles. Process broth and chiles in a blender until smooth. Stir chile mixture into pork mixture. Cover and cook on LOW 7 to 8 hours or until pork is very tender. Serve with lime wedges and radishes.
