chili recipe

I made this chili today. It is really good! crazy amount of ingredients... totally worth it!

1 lb pork shoulder (tamale meat), I used ground pork
1 lb bacon
2 lb stew meat
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 28 oz can tomato sauce
1 bottle beer
1 can beef broth
1 lb course ground chuck
2 lb pork sausage
2 small onions
1 bell pepper
4+ cloves of garlic
1 can green chilis
1 28 oz can chopped tomato, I used rotel
3 tbls chili powder
3 tbls cumin
1 tbls molasses
2-3 tbls chopped fresh cilantro
2 cans beans, I used pinto beans

Grind bacon in food processor, cook until done but not crisp. (My food processor bit the dust, so I chopped up the raw bacon into tiny pieces instead.) Drain and set aside reserving drippings. Dredge stew meat in flour, salt and pepper. Brown in 1-2 tbls drippings. Put tomato sauce, beef broth, beer and stew meat in slow cooker and cook overnight (low) or about 3 hrs on high until tender. Chop onions, green pepper and garlic an saute in 1/2 tbls bacon drippings until soft. Brown remaining meat. Combine all ingredients except cilantro in a large pot and simmer 1 hour, add additional salt and pepper to taste. Add cilantro and additional broth or water if it is too thick before serving. Serve with cheese and sour cream.

Chili cook-off worthy! Not too spicy for the kiddos. If you like your chili spicy, add more chili powder. Enjoy!

  1. Okay, pork and then more pork (bacon), then add more pork (sausage), then beef and beef and then beer? What is not to like about this?!! Well maybe the cilantro but I can leave that out right? This looks like it makes a lot. But I can see freezing up in portions for weekend lunches or nights I don't feel like cooking ;) Thanks for stopping by for visit! I hope to see you again soon!
