Kansas City Style Pulled Pork BBQ Chili

As soon as I saw this recipe in Food Network Magazine I immediately knew I'd be making it on Super Bowl Sunday:@) What makes Kansas City Style Pulled Pork BBQ Chili a little different? A. Pork in chili, and B. It's non-apologetically sweet. The boys ate it with sour cream, I added some pickled jalapenos and really enjoyed the fresh scallions. This is very nice if you're looking for something that cooks for a few hours making the house smell great, and is a good variation of chili. 
Full disclosure: I used pork stew meat, and cut back on the meat and added an extra can of beans. The only other thing I might do differently, hold the BBQ sauce until the meat has cooked and been shredded. I'd just heat that through with the beans.

  1. So you say you made this yesterday for the Superbowl, but you don't clearly state that it caused the Cheifs to win. I think it might have! It sounds that good! I think that in all fairness, you should've served it with a San Francisco sourdough, in order to balance out the mojo. :-)

  2. Lynn, this chili sounds so good and I hope you all enjoyed the Super Bowl!

  3. This chili does sound really good, Lynn! It sounds like the boys enjoyed it, too. Thanks for sharing your next-time tips.


Thank you for stopping by-enjoy your day!
