ingredients

directions

  • Pour 4 tablespoons of the oil into a large, heavy bottomed stockpot and place over high heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Season the pork with a dash of salt and pepper and brown it in batches, 3 to 5 minutes per batch. Set aside the browned pork.
  • Pour the remaining oil into the pot and add the onion, garlic, bell pepper and jalapenos. Season the veggies with the brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, salt, pepper and cilantro. Sweat the vegetable mixture over medium heat for 10 minutes, until the onion is soft. Add the pork back to the pot along with the tomatoes, honey, coffee, bourbon. Add the beans, stir well, bring up to a simmer and then lower the heat to the lowest setting.
  • Let simmer 2 to 3 hours, until the pork is juicy and buttery soft. Serve directly from the stovetop with side bowls of sour cream, sliced jalapenos, and shredded cheddar.

    Instead of bourbon I used Southern Comfort 100. Also, 1 1/4 t cayenne instead of 2 t. Sweet chili. Impressive!

    DELICIOUS! I cut the pork into 1 inch chunks... 2 inch just seemed too large. I reduced the honey & brown sugar by half, after reading reviews that said this recipe was too sweet. Rather than using 2 red bell peppers, I used 1 small green, 1 small red & 1 small yellow bell pepper. I'll definitely be making this chili often... the balance of flavors was awesome and the pork was so tender!

    Don't overlook this recipe or you'll be sorry! There's some atypical chili ingredients in here that really make it stand out from other chilis--honey, coffee, bourbon. All slow cooked to make the pork loin tender---yummy!! UPDATE 3/17/09: I made this for a chili cook-off last weekend and took 1st prize.

    I saw this on the Food Network (Party Line with the Hearty Boys) several months ago, and finally got around to making it for dinner tonight. Amazing! The flavors are deep and complex, just a very lovely chili. The only thing that I might do differently next time (and I'm still waffling over the decision)is to decrease the amount of honey slightly. I will most certainly make this one again. Thanks! :)
