Slow Cooked Pork Shoulder Chili

Chili, as I say every time I upload a new recipe for some, is one of my go-to meals. There are at least five different recipes for various styles of chili on this blog, and in five more years, I’m sure that number will at least double.

I cannot be stopped.

This time, though, I’m beginning my gradual encroachment into my mother-in-law’s chili territory, which involves cooking an entire pork shoulder overnight in the crock pot, so that everyone in the house wakes up the following morning with an aching stomach and an all-day craving for some juicy pig. Or, in my case, wake up in a panic thinking “What is that sme– OH MY GOD, SOMETHING HAS BEEN ON IN THE KITCHEN OVERNIGHT.” Yeah, either or. Your choice.

1, 3 – 4 lb Pork shoulder roast
1/2 cup Vermouth
1 large Onion, diced
5 cloves Garlic
3/4 cup Chicken broth
1 1/2 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Smoked paprika
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Cayenne
Salt & Pepper, to taste
1 16 oz jar Salsa verde
1, 19 oz can Garbanzo beans
1, 19 oz can Light red kidney beans
1, 8 oz can Diced green chiles
1, 20 oz can Stewed tomatoes
1 tbsp Tomato paste

You need to start this recipe the night before you want to eat it, because you’re going to drop that plain pork shoulder into your crockpot at around 11PM or so and cook it on low for 8 hours.

In the morning, carefully drain off the excess fat and trim any obvious remaining sections from the roast before shredding it with a pair of forks or a pair of tongs (it’s frankly kind of difficult both ways, so whatever you feel is easier, but it should fall right apart). Add in all of the other ingredients, stir, and cook on low for another 8 hours before serving as-is or with shredded cheese and sour cream.
