Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a 7-quart pot over medium heat. When hot, add the scallions and garlic, and sauté until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and chipotle in adobo, and cook for 3 minutes. Chop up 4 of the cilantro sprigs, add to the pot, and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Stir in 1 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 1/2 tsp. pepper, and cumin. Add pork ribs and brown on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in 10 cups water. Add rice, peas, and carrots, and stir again. Drop in the remaining cilantro sprig.

  • Cook, covered, over medium heat until water has been mostly absorbed and rice grains have opened, about 60 minutes. Turn off heat; leave covered for 10 minutes.

  • Taste broth and season with more salt, cumin, and black pepper if necessary.
