    In your nutritional information I find your value for sodium of "070" unbelievable because of the canned hominy and can of tomatoes - did you make an error in that value? I have not made the recipe yet, but intend to do so; in the meantime I give it 3 stars.

    My family loved this stew, even my 2 and 5 year old. We use pork loin not tenderloin and it is moist and very tasty.

    Just like the rating says, this is a good, solid recipe. I decided to cook it in a Dutch oven rather than the slow cooker (when I saw all the browned up flavor in the Dutch oven, I put the slow cooker away). After about three hours at 225 degrees, it was still a little thin. I took the pork out to shred and put it on the stovetop over a medium flame (just enough to simmer lightly). After shredding the pork, I turned up the heat and stirred constantly for about 10 min. I added the pork, corn (I love hominy, but my wife and daughter just won't eat it) and dried oregano (I'll definitely use fresh next time). The pot went back in the oven for about 25 minutes and came out just right. The pork was tender, juicy and delicious and the overall flavor was very good (everyone enjoyed it), but there is something missing (Dried mustard? Cumin? Worcester?). With some minor tinkering, this recipe has major potential. I will definitely be tinkering with it!

    The pork was a bit dry and flavor was sort of bland. I would note that I used pork tenderloin as opposed to shoulder. I probably won't make this again- however I do plan to eat it all. I think there are better pork slow cooker recipes to be had...
