“This is a rich, mild chili and pork stew. It is one of my favorite things, which I like to eat from a bowl with plenty of saltine crackers and a salad on the side. It's also good served over rice or chili beans.” - by Ron Shepherd
Original recipe yields 1 quart
- Place 3 tablespoons flour in a plastic bag. Add pork and shake to lightly coat with flour. Set aside.
- Heat bacon drippings and vegetable oil in a Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add pork and cook until meat is evenly browned, about 5 to 8 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon flour, and cook 3 minutes. Stir in the onion, tomato sauce, chile powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low and simmer until pork is just falling apart, about 1-1/2 to 2 hours.

"I don't think it gets any easier than this. Full of great flavor! The heat level is just right, too. It has some punch but doesn't overpower the flavor of the meal. I served it with brown rice, wh..." See moreole wheat tortillas, and sour cream. My husband went back for thirds."
"I really enjoyed the concept of this recipe. I started out following the instructions 100%, but as time passed and the flavors began to meld, I updated it a bit. That's not to detract anything from ..." See morethe original recipe, it's just catering to our personal tastes. I doubled the recipe (3 lb pork butt) - it was very easy to dice the roast into smaller chunks by throwing into the freezer for a couple hours prior. After doubling all the other ingredients I found it a bit bland so I *again* doubled the amount of spices (so 1/2 cup chili powder, etc). Then I realized it was the perfect soup/stew to clean out the veggie drawer! In went chopped carrots, my leftover lone zucchini, a couple stalks of celery. About a half hour before it was done I threw in what was left in the orzo box - probably a cup or so. I tell you what, I challenge you to find a more hearty meal than that. So while I did stray from the exact recipe a little, we found something that is sure to be a family favorite for years to come! Fantastic base recipe (the meat is to die for) that is wonderful to cater to your family's taste buds. Sorry for the long-winded review. ;)"
