I decided to do something different for a chili cookoff, so I made this up the day of the event. It turned out pretty good and won first prize, even without beans ;-) .

I started by slow-cooking a pork roast. It took about 4 1/2 hours to prepare the pork roast, including about 45 minutes in a cooler after cooking, but it was mouthwateringly tender and juicy by the time it was done. Here are most of the ingredients I decided to use for the chili.



I started the base by sauteing a couple cloves of garlic in oil.



Once the garlic started to brown, I removed it and used the garlic infused oil to cook a chopped sweet onion.



I added two pounds of pork sausage and a chopped green pepper. After draining the fat/oil, I added a cup of Dr. Pepper and a cup of merlot. I'm not a wine drinker so I just use whatever catches my eye at the grocery store. Some day, I'll have to have a wine expert school on the best wines for cooking.



I added a minced chipotle pepper along with several tablespoons each of prepared chili pepper and California ground chili pepper, plus some brown sugar and a cup of Veri Veri Teriyaki sauce.



I chopped the pork roast into small chunks and added it to the mix and let it simmer for a 1/2 hour.



Holy cow it was smelling good at this point!



Finally, I added pineapple chunks.



Mmmmmmmmm! It was good. I even had it again for breakfast the next day!

I have no idea what pineapples taste like in a chili, but I'll give you a 7/10 because I'm so hungry.

edit, -1 for no beans

I always add a can of pineapple to my beef stew. I love the sweet contrast to the heartiness and spiceness of the meat in a dish like that.

Nice job, OP, thanks for sharing!

Always interested in recipes that are inspired, and this one seems to be one of those.

I'm going to give this one a shot, I have a feeling the fam will enjoy it as well.

10/10...pics, unconventional ingred's (Dr Pepper), originality, and it sure looks uniquely delicious...awesome.

You had a '10/10' with the first shot of the cooked pork roast.

That final pic, 11/10.



Would you care to freeze a bowl and ship it to me?

Pinapple??? WTH

Why dont you just finish it off with a nice sack of crap while you are at it.

Mind as well add beans, cuz that sir is not chili. No beef.


However, does look appetizing. But definitely NOT Chili.

Almost a mai-tai-manwich.

Chili w/ no beans, check.

Chili with meat, check, but something's not right...

Chili made of... pork?

With fruit?!

The entire state of Texas just had a stroke.



I have a feeling I'm going to attempt this tomorrow.

No beans? Fine. Put it over some noodles and it will make a nice spaghetti sauce.
Link Posted: 11/2/2009 8:37:26 AM EST
that is not chili

So if you add pineapple to anything you can call it Hawaiian?

Ignorant haoles seem to think so.


BTW I am glad you like your dish but I find it disturbing on many levels.

Would that make it more "authentic"? Bacon flavored spam could be a good addition.


Since bandwidth was exceeded on the photobucket account, I switched to a different host. Hopefully the pics will stay up now.
