The other weekend I wandered in a very nice mexican Supermercado where they sold, among other things, homemade (well store made) mole poblano. I would never have the patience (or the time) to study the recipe for mole poblano, pick out all the ingredients, measure them and cook them for the time required to make some good mole, so I picked some of that mole poblano up.
- 4 slices pork loin
- 1 onion
- 1 large sweet potato
- 2 spoon mole poblano
- First I warmed a bit of oil and seared the pork in it on both sides. I then added the diced onion and the diced sweet potato. After a quick stir, I added the mole and about 2 cups of water. I stirred until the mole was well dissolved in the water and let everything cook. I cooked the dish for about 20 minutes, basically until the mole was of a nice thick consistency.
- The mole turned out to be very good: slightly spicy with the sweet undertones of chocolate and the heartiness of the nuts. It was very difficult for me not to lick the plate.
