This chili is about 95% pork that was fried in bacon grease. As such, I can eat about 1 tablespoon of it before the stomach clenching begins. What was I thinking! Four pounds of pork shoulder is way too much pork shoulder for one person. WAY TOO MUCH. This dish is not really a "chili," it's like really, really heavy dip that no one should eat more than 1 tablespoon of. If I was going to do it again, which I'm not, I would go down to like 1 pound of pork shoulder and put in way more veggies.
On the plus side, my house smells like bacon, and mr. monk has been FREAKING OUT about since I cracked open the package with the pork in it yesterday. I think he actually may have been able to eat more of it than me.
Recipe here, if you want to dare it.
