Country Style Ribs...to Pork Tacos...to Pozole. QVIEW  

A coupla sundays ago I was looking for something to smoke during football. I keep seeing CSR's on these sites, but have never smoked them, let alone tasted them. I knew that they wouldn't take too long either since the shoulder strips are cut so small. So I did a 3-2-1 on them. Covered in Maple Syrup, then a good dose of rub.

Here they are, charred them up on the grill to finish them off

After deciding I wasn't a CSR fan (felt like I was biting into straight fat), I trimmed the fat out and cut nice small size pieces of good meat out. Now I could really enjoy the flavor/texture. I made pork tacos that night for dinner w/ the CSR meat

My mother-in-law was staying at our house the past couple of weeks to help out with our fam's new addition, and she came to the rescue with the CSR leftovers. She whipped up a pot full of Pozole, which was fantastic!

Side Note: Did I mention she made homemade chile rellenos the following night?

[h2]Preparation[/h2]
Peel garlic cloves and reserve 2 for chile sauce. Slice remaining garlic. In a 7- to 8-quart heavy kettle bring water and broth just to a boil with sliced garlic and pork. Skim surface and add oregano. Gently simmer pork, uncovered, until tender, about 1 1/2 hours.

While pork is simmering, wearing protective gloves, discard stems from chiles and in a bowl combine chiles with boiling-hot water. Soak chiles, turning them occasionally, 30 minutes. Cut onion into large pieces and in a blender purée with chiles and soaking liquid, reserved garlic, and 2 teaspoons salt until smooth.

Transfer pork with tongs to a cutting board and reserve broth mixture. Shred pork, using 2 forks, and discard bones. Rinse and drain hominy. Return pork to broth mixture and add chile sauce, hominy, and remaining teaspoon salt. Simmer pozole 30 minutes and, if necessary, season with salt. Pozole may be made 2 days ahead and chilled, covered.

While pozole is simmering, stack tortillas and halve. Cut halves crosswise into thin strips. In a 9- to 10-inch skillet heat 1/2 inch oil until hot but not smoking and fry tortilla strips in 3 or 4 batches, stirring occasionally, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer tortilla strips with a slotted spoon as fried to brown paper or paper towels to drain. Transfer tortilla strips to a bowl. Tortilla strips may be made 1 day ahead and kept, covered, at room temperature.

Serve pozole with tortilla strips and bowls of accompaniments.
