Trim fat from pork, cut into cubes, place in large non-stick stock pot
Place chiles in smallest saucepan with enough water to float all the chiles, bring to boil then reduce to lowest heat and leave covered
Add a bit of vegetable oil to the pork, then brown over high heat in bottom of stockpot

Drain hominy and add to pork
Add vegetable broth and water, as needed, to an even ratio of liquid to everything else
