Pork Green Chili
457 S Broadway
Denver, CO 80209
Chef Luiz recommends using pork shoulder for the nice fatty part of the animal, yet meaty for a good stew.
Wear plastic or protective gloves when cutting the chilies, there are lots in the recipe.
Pork—2 pounds, cubed
Parsley—2 tablespoons, chopped
Garlic—1 tablespoon, chopped (pre-roasted is fine as well)
Chicken base—1 tablespoon for minimum salt, then add from there
Poblano Chili Pepper—1/2 cup, washed, deseeded and deveined, chopped
Anaheim Chili Pepper—1/2 cup, washed, deseeded and deveined, chopped
Jalapeño Chili Pepper—1/4 cup, washed, deseeded and deveined, chopped
Yellow Onion—1 cup, chopped
Cumin—sprinkling to liking
Paprika and Chili powder—1 teaspoon each
Tomatoes—8 ounce can or roughly two tomatoes chopped
You will also need to add water. This will change the thickness of your chili. Less water, very stew like, etc. Start with 1 cup and add from there.
- Coat the cubed pork in the flour, drenching it will add thickness at the end.
- Sautee the pork in a pot large enough to hold all the ingredients. There is much fat already, so no oil is needed. Make sure it is browned nicely on all sides.
- Once the meat is cooked, drain off the excess fat and place the meat in the pot.
- Add all the ingredients and put on a low simmer for at least three hours, checking to see if more water is needed.
- If you like your peppers a little more bold, try and cook them right after you skim off the fat and before you add the rest of the ingredients, it adds overall strength.
- Note that other vegetables can easily be added to this recipe.
