How to Make Carne Adovada (Pork)


  • 1In dutch oven (stove top) or you may use pressure cooker. I like to let mine slow cook on the stove. The longer it simmers the more tenders the meat will be.
  • 2Place Pork into Dutch oven, you may be able to purchase the meat already marinated in chili at Albertson's (Carne Ardovada Pork), pour in water, add cubed potatoes and pour in 1 bottle of Corona Beer, add Rotel, add all spices, simmer for 2 hours on medium low heat. You may simmer longer, let it cook down. I start mine 4 hours earlier. The longer you cook it the more tender the meat will be, the potatoes thicken the liquid also. You may also cook this in a pressure cooker for 1 hour, though add beer after it is pressure cooked, continue to cook on simmer for 20 minutes. Liquid should be of stew consistency, in shaker place 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup water, shake to get all lumps out till smooth, pour into Carne Adovada stirring constantly till thickens, let simmer, you may eat it on rice, posole (mexican corn) which is hominy, or just as a stew. Enjoy
