Watch the video and learn how to make this amazing Sonora Pork Stew!
The nickname “Mamá Grande” is very common in the north of Mexico. Instead of name our grandparents or great grandparents “abuelos or bisabuelos” we call them Mamá Grande or Papá Grande. My great grandmother was born in Sonora. Her heritage was Irish and Indian Yaqui. In Mexico we also had Native Americans who inhabit the valley of the Río Yaqui in the state of Sonora and you could find them in the states of Durango and Chihuahua too. However their community originated in Arizona.
The cuisine in those Northern states in Mexico has influence from the Indian Yaqui culinary culture. And this Sonora Pork Stew is a great example. At home we were used to enjoy this dish when the temperatures dropped. The consistency of the stew resembles a chili but has pinto beans, wheat, chile pasado (a dried roasted pepper that tastes like a poblano pepper) and pork.
For the stew, I am using Smithfield All Natural Fresh Pork, because of it’s quality and freshness. The experts at Smithfield hand-selected and hand-trimmed the pork cuts. And you can tell, because no matter which cut you buy all have great quality, to prepare flavorful meals.

The Sonora Pork Stew is a complete meal in a bowl. It is served with homemade flour tortillas and fresh garnishes. Such as chopped cilantro and serrano peppers. Some like to add shredded Chihuahua cheese too.
Since the holidays is all about family gatherings this Sonora Pork Stew comes handy. You can prepare it a day or two in advance. The more the stew simmers the better the flavors develop. This stew is hearty and fulfilling. Can be a great option for entertaining at home. Serve for an upcoming Posada or for game day. And why not offer for breakfast the day after Christmas.
