Ingredients

For the meat

  • 3 litres water
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • ½ small brown onion
  • 1 kg pork ribs or pork loin

For the sauce (mole)

  • 250 g hot dried red chillies, Costeno or Guajillo chillies if you can get them
  • water, for soaking chilies
  • 2 cloves
  • pinch oregano
  • pinch cumin
  • 5 cloves garlic, whole
  • oil, to fry the meat
  • 250 g red or green tomatoes
  • salt, to taste
  • 3 small potatoes, peeled, cut into small cubes

Instructions

For the meat

  • Boil the water in a large saucepan with the garlic, onion, salt, and pork until cooked (approximately one hour). In the meantime prepare the sauce (mole).

For the sauce (mole)

  • Clean and de-seed the chillies and cover in a little water for a few minutes, to soften.
  • Blend the drained chillies with the cloves, oregano, cumin, and garlic, and set aside.

To complete the meal

  • Remove meat from the saucepan, conserving the liquid in the saucepan, then lightly fry the meat in a little oil until sealed.
  • Add the pureed chilli mix to the meat and cook well.
  • Puree the tomatoes in a food processor or blender, and add to the pan. Fry for around 10 minutes, stirring gently. Add a little salt, to taste.
  • Add the cubed potatoes to the mole, and pour in some of the reserved meat broth until it just covers the meat. Simmer until the potatoes are cooked through (The Chileajo will thicken, which is desired, however you can add more of the reserved meat broth for a thinner consistency).
