A yummy Halloween dish for you…

Serves 4

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 small white onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

¼ teaspoon of ground coriander

1 teaspoon cumin

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon thyme

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper

2 pounds pork cubes

1- 7 ounce can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

3 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa

4 tablespoons tomato paste

½ cup chicken broth


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat the oil in an oven proof medium sauté pan over medium heat and then add the onion. Sauté for about 5 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Add the garlic and sauté and another minute. Remove the onions and garlic to bowl off the heat.

Sauté the pork cubes (about a minute on each side.) You may have to add a drop more oil. Return the onion mixture to the pan and then add the rest of the ingredients. Stir well and then place the pan in the oven.
