All Day Pork Loin Chili

Yield: 14 – 16 servings



  • 8 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 Pounds boneless pork loin, cut into 2-inch cubes
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Spanish onion, cut into 1-inch dice
  • 2 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Red bell peppers, seeded and cut into 1-inch dice
  • 3 Jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
  • 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 Tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 Teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 3 15-ounce cans diced tomatoes, with juice
  • 1/2 Cup honey
  • 1/2 Cup prepared black coffee
  • 1/2 Cup bourbon
  • 2 15-ounce cans black beans, drained
  • 2 15-ounce cans kidney beans, drained
  • 1 Cup sour cream (for serving)
  • 1 Small can jalapenos, sliced or chopped jalapenos (for serving)
  • 2 Cups shredded cheddar (for serving)



  • Pour four tablespoons of the oil into a large, heavy-bottomed stockpot and place over high heat for two to three minutes.
  • Season the pork with a dash of salt and pepper and brown it in batches, three to five 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 and bourbon. Add the beans, and stir well. Bring to a simmer, and then lower the heat to the lowest setting.
  • Let simmer two to three 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.
