Caribbean Red Bean Chili With Pork

Caribbean Red Bean Chili With Pork created by katew

This is traditionally a vegetarian dish, but I needed to use up some leftover pork shoulder. You can use any cut of pork you wish, of course. I like to start this dish off with my favorite sofrito (Recipe #444676), but if you don't want to use that just start with a finely chopped onion. We like to puree the tomatoes in the food processor, but this is not necessary or traditional. I drain the liquid and puree the solids, then recombine. I like the sweet onion flavor for this recipe.

  • Heat oil in a large saucepan, over medium heat; add sofrito (or onion) and cook until slightly softened, about 3 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes and garlic and cook for 10 minutes; stir in white wine (or beer), and broth.
  • Stir in the lentils, thyme, cumin, soy sauce, chili, spices and oyster sauce, if using.
  • Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until lentils are tender and flavors develop, about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally; if lentils dry out, add water.

    I had to use a lot of the more normal options listed here as the others are just not available in this country. I used pork mince, white wine, navy beans and a big dollop of mashed pumpkin as I cannot get pumpkin pie spice so got a great colour. This made a wonderful bowl of comfort food and smelled wonderful whilst cooking. Made for ZWT 9.
