Pork Chili Wed, 03/7/07 3:38 PM (permalink)
Here is a couple pics of some pork chili I made up a few weeks ago, it turned out pretty good.





After it simmered for 2 hours I served it over some rice.

    Sure looks good.
    I use ground pork and beef when I make my chili.
    I buy a tenderloin and grind it myself.
    Much better than the stuff already ground up.
    Sometimes I will grind my own beef also.
    Makes for a better texture, IMHO.

      Mike S,
      Gotta admit I've been watching your pork thing about chile.SIX DAYS NOW! Seems you're about as lonely as the Maytag repairman. BEEF is chili! Sometimes cubed, sometimes course ground, I even stoop as low as hamburger ground. Whats with all them maters? Wheres the chile!!!
      All in fun,
      Dean

        We tend to put maters in our chili in California, and Mike was up in Fresno at least long enough to have that wear off on him......

          That looks pretty good, Mike. I've never tried chili with pork, but I'd try (almost) anything at least once. I hear tell some folks make their chili with ground turkey, but that sort of shenanigan's most likely against the law here in Texas. They must be veggiematarians or something.

            My branch of the family came to Texas, and I've been known to use a 'mater or three in my Chili, too.

                Rdog, I was trying something different. I had gotten a good buy on a pork loin. Their's chili powder in there and Cholula was added to the bowl.

                  I'd have tried it, too, Cuz. 'Course I'll even make Chili out of seafood. :-)

                    Mike S, Hats off to a man brave enough to experiment, I admire you. I do the same. Half the time, Nancy won't even eat my concoctions. Most the time I can get it down. I've got a real surprise for her tonight.

                      I like a good bowl of Texas red a couple 3 times a year. But 5 or 6 times I'll make chili beans. If interested see my recipe in the chili forum.

                        I'm thinking you had a good idea on that pork loin, Mike. I'm going to price it the next time I make a batch of Chile Verde. It sure does look pretty and lean, and I can remember trimming those pork butts until my knees give out.

                          Dick, I usually get it at Costco for 1.99 a lb for the whole loin. Or the local super market will put it on sale for that price occasionally. I'll cut the whole loin into 3 or 4 pieces and freeze. I make chops, chili verde, roasts whatever with it.
