Mote, also known as hominy, is a type of giant corn grown in the Andes Mountains. When soaked and boiled in water, it becomes 'mote pelado' as the skin of the corn peels off while cooking. The mote pelado kernels are larger and less sweet than the corn commonly found in the United States.
Most commonly served as a side dish with meats, mote pelado is a great addition to soups and stews. It's also used in 'mote pillo', a popular breakfast dish made with hominy and eggs. Mote pelado can also be ground for empanada dough or tamales.
This special giant corn is high in vitamin B complex, vitamin C, iron and magnesium.
Spicy Pork (Serves 4)
2 pounds boneless pork, cut in pieces
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon ají amarillo paste
1 tablespoon ají panca paste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup orange juice
In a glass bowl, mix together the vinegar, ají pastes, garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Mix well and pour into a bigger bowl. Add the pork, mix all well, cover and marinate it for at least an hour.
Heat oil in a large skillet and add chopped onions, stir and cook well until they are soft and transparent. Remove pork from the bag and reserve marinade aside. Cook pork until nicely browned on the outside. Add orange juice, the marinade and mix well. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the pork is tender.
On a pot, heat the mote pelado in a bit of water for about 7 minutes, stirring constantly.
Serve the pork with the mote pelado and garnish with the parsley leaves on top.
