Santa Fe Pot Roast

Author: Canadian Living

This updated standby has a bit of a kick, which can turn into a punch by adding 2 tbsp (25 mL) more chilies. If you can't find canned chilies, use half a sweet green pepper plus 1/2 tsp (2 mL) hot pepper sauce.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 lbs boneless pork shoulder butt roast
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 can peeled green chili (drained, rinsed and chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups baby carrots (1-1/4 lb/625 g)
  • 6 onions (about 1 lb/500 g) halved
  • 1/3 cup cold water

Method

Spread 1/3 cup (75 mL) of the flour on plate. Pat pork dry; roll in flour to coat, brushing off any excess. In Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown pork, turning with wooden spoons, about 10 minutes. Drain off any fat.

Combine stock, chilies, garlic, oregano, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper; pour into pan. Cover and cook in 350°F (180°C) oven for 1-1/2 hours. Add carrots and onions; cook for 1-1/2 hours or until meat and vegetables are tender. Transfer meat and vegetables to platter; tent with foil to keep warm.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, whisk remaining flour with cold water; whisk in about 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the hot liquid from pot. Whisk mixture back into pot. Bring to boil over high heat; cook, whisking, for about 5 minutes or until thickened. Serve with meat and vegetables.
