Hog and Hominy

I was doing some recipe searching for something to use with my leftover pork steaks when I stumbled upon this recipe. Its a civil war era dish called "Hog and Hominy".  I will cook up some fresh cornbread to go with. So, this is what we are having for dinner tonight. Its only supposed to reach 50 today and its supposed to rain! It feels quite chilly right now.

"Dice up the pork and stir it into a medium-sized saucepan with a can of white or yellow hominy with the liquid, a dash of garlic, a tablespoon of diced onion, and a teaspoon of parsley flakes. Heat through, salt and pepper to taste and serve with fresh hot cornbread."

I will post a follow up tonight or tomorrow and let you know how it turns out!

  1. Oh my! I must admit, at first I thought this might be a little bland..so not the case! I think it was the garlic that made this. My meat was already cooked and rather than simply heat it I cooked it until the liquid was gone. More like a casserole texture. At any rate, so delish AND my kiddos liked it! Fresh, warm cornbread hit the spot. I imagine this was a nice feast back in the 1860's!
