  • 2 pound boneless pork sirloin roast or shoulder roast

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • ½ cup chopped onion (1 medium)

  • 4 cup peeled and cubed potatoes (4 medium)

  • 3 cup water

  • 1 15.25- or 15.5-ounce can hominy or whole kernel corn, drained

  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin

  2. Transfer all of the meat and the onion to a 3-1/2- to 4-1/2-quart slow cooker. Stir in potatoes, the water, hominy, green chile peppers, tapioca, garlic salt, cumin, ground ancho pepper, black pepper, and oregano.

  3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours. If desired, sprinkle with cilantro.
