Chef Adriana Martin
This Salsa Verde Pork Stew stew is a homey dish full of flavor cooked in a roasted hatch chile tomatillo sauce and finished potatoes. A classic Mexican recipe from my great grandmother's recipe box.

Servings 6 people


  • 1 pork loin 2 pounds cut into chunks
  • 1 tablespoon of chicken bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon of Mexican oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of corn oil
  • 4 cups of roasted hatch chile salsa verde
  • 1 cup of water or chicken stock
  • 10 boiled mini potatoes


  • Cut the pork loin and season it with chicken bouillon, Mexican oregano, and cumin. 
  • In a skillet add some corn oil and sear the seasoned pork loin chunks until golden brown. This searing process allows for a better presentation and more flavor. 
  • Add the seared pork loin chunks to the Instant Pot and pour four cups of roasted hatch chile salsa verde and one cup of water or chicken stock. 
  • Close the Instant Pot making sure the valve is positioned correctly and choose the "Meat/Stew" cooking mode. It takes 35 minutes for the pork stew to be ready. 
  • Meanwhile, peel and cook the potatoes on a separate pot with water. Add the boiled potatoes to the pork stew when ready. 



  • Cut the pork loin into big chunks as it tends the shrink while cooking on the pressure cooker.
  • Searing the pork loin on a separate skillet adds flavor and allows for an even sauté. Searing can be done using the "Sauté" Instant Pot function if desired. 
  • This recipe is excellent for Instant Pot, but a classic stovetop pressure cooker is allowed.
  • Avoid cooking the mini potatoes with the pork inside the Instant Pot as those need to be kept whole.
  • If using a traditional pressure cooker cooking time will need to be adjusted to 50 - 60 minutes instead of 35 minutes in the Instant Pot.
