Bruneau River Green Pork Chili

Serves: 12
Total Calories: 165


3 to 4 pounds pork roast
2 tablespoons cumin
3 tablespoons cornstarch
6 cups water
1 (4-ounce) can green chili drained and finely diced or fresh green, anaheim and jalapeño peppers, minced
1 pound tomatillos, minced
salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon dried minced garlic


After you get the charcoal started, wash your hands and rub the cumin on the roast. Salt and pepper the roast at this time if you wish. This works best in a deep 12-inch Dutch Oven, if you have one. Place the roast in the DO with a couple of cups of water, of course, minced fresh garlic may be added, too, as garlic goes with just about everything except strawberry short cake! Set the Dutch Oven in the fire pan with 12-14 briquets both underneath and on the lid. Roast slowly for 3-4 hours, adding charcoal every 1 1/2 hours. Check occasionally and add water to keep about an inch of liquid in the Dutch. When the roast will just fall apart, it’s done. Pull the roast out and set it aside to cool. Pull your DO off the fire and cover with the lid until the roast has cooled. Once the roast is cool to the touch, trim off any fat and shred or chop coarsely with a knife. Set the Dutch Oven you did the roast in over 6-8 fresh briquets and add 1/4 of your shredded meat along with four cups water, the chilies, or peppers and tomatillas and the minced onion and garlic. Stir to mix and let this simmer for 15-20 minutes. A tablespoon at a time, mix the cornstarch with cold water and stir into the meat until it thickens to suit you. Presto, you’ve just made green pork chili ! If you make this at home and want to use it later, let it cool and refrigerate in a couple of old plastic butter tubs.
