Pork Chili in the Crockpot

Pork-Chili-in-the-Crockpot

Looking for a simple but very tasty Pork Crockpot recipe?

This one definitely fits the bill.  Other then dicing up the onion and celery, it is an open the can and dump recipe.  Can’t get much easier then that.

To make it even better, this is a very frugal recipe since pork is one of the least expensive meats available, even cheaper then ground round.  I paid $1.68 per pound for pork loin at Sam’s club while ground round sells for $2.88 per pound lately.

I do have one daughter who isn’t crazy about pork, but this dish is so tasty, she didn’t complain at all and actually enjoyed it.

In most of my Crock Pot Tuesday recipes, I put the meat in the crock pot frozen, but this time since I had just bought the pork loin the day before, it wasn’t frozen.  So all I did was sliced the pork loin into inch long pieces and placed them in the bottom of the crock pot.  Then  put the onions, celery and all the spices in to the crockpot.  I will admit that while I list measurements in the recipe, I do actually eyeball them when putting them in my recipe.

My daughters are constantly telling me not to do that, because they would have gotten in big trouble in home economics class.  But guess what?  I’m not in Home Ec anymore and the food comes out good.  So eyeballing it is how I roll when cooking – plus it means one less spoon to wash.

 

Pork-Chili-Aldi-Spices

 

Speaking of the spices, did you notice they were all from Aldi.  That’s why they are on my dozen Aldi staples list.   At $1.19 a bottle it’s a great deal plus since the bottles are not huge, there is a good likelihood you will use them all before the spices loose freshness.

Now comes the open and dump part.  Just pour in the tomato sauce, Diced Tomatoes, Chopped Chili peppers and undrained black beans.  Then stir it all together.

 

Pork-Chili-Before-Cooking

 

If your pork has been frozen, place the lid on and cook on high for an hour and then open the crock pot to separate the chops.  Then continue cooking for 2 hours on high.   Since my pork was fresh, I simple cooked them on high for 2 1/2 hours.

.After the chops had been cooking for 2 1/2 hours on high, I pulled them out of the crock pot and took cut the pork nto bite size pieces.  I then poured them back into the crock pot and stirred it altogether.  I continued cooked for 2 1/2 hours on low.

Here’s the finished dish.

 

Pork-Chili-Finished

 

Today, I served the Pork Chili as a soup with a bit of shredded cheese on top, but in the past I have served it on rice and it has gone over just as well.  It’s just up to what you want.

    For the rice, I did cook it in a normal pan. Once it was done, I put it in the foil tray in the crockpot to keep it warm.

    Great idea to put the meat in the crock pot frozen! I'll have to start doing that…
