1.) Begin by seasoning the pork shoulder with garlic powder, salt and pepper. In a rondeau, over medium-high heat, add the canola oil and brown the pieces of pork shoulder. Brown on all sides until completely seared. Remove the meat and hold aside.

2.) In the same rondeau, add the onions and garlic and cook for 3 minutes; sprinkle the bottom of the rondeau with flour, mix well. Finish by adding the chicken stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and return the pork shoulder to the pot.

3.) Cook the meat, covered on the stove top using medium-low heat for 3½ to 4 hours, or until fall-apart tender. Remove pork, shred and reserve warm. Reserve liquid.

4.) To make pot pie filling: In a large stock pot, over medium heat, combine shredded pork, white hominy, 1 qt. braising liquid, and 2 cups of chile paste. Heat to a boil, cover and reduce heat to medium and allow mixture to simmer for a minimum 2 hours.

5.) To assemble pot pie: In a 6” cast iron skillet, grease with cooking spray. Press an 8” Hearty Grains™ Tortilla into bottom. Fill with 1 cup (8.0 oz) of pork filling with a 6” Hearty Grains™ Tortilla. Cut an X into the top tortilla to allow steam to escape, spray with cooking spray, and sprinkle with 1.0 oz. of shredded Gouda cheese. Bake until hot and cheese is melted. Serve topped with 2 tbsp. cilantro.
