Venison Pork Chili

Sometimes, you’ve just got to have a big bowl of steaming chili. Here in Texas, it’s all about the meat: beans are nowhere to be found, but you can add in some chippy goodness and make a Frito pie. In this recipe, we combined venison and pork (and bacon fat!) for a hearty dish that’s perfect for any weather, because it’s just so dang good.

    1. One day before cooking the chili, brine the venison and pork. Combine the salt, peppercorns, and water in a large pot and bring to a boil. Allow to cool thoroughly (using ice cubes and the fridge to help you along). Once the brine has cooled, transfer to a large container and place the meat chunks inside. Seal the container and refrigerate overnight.

    2. Once brined, drain the meat and pat dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle with the cornstarch. Melt the bacon fat over medium heat in a large pot. Add the meat and sauté until browned, about 5 – 8 minutes. Remove the meat and add in the onions, celery, and chipotles. Sauté until the vegetables begin to soften, about 3 – 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and chili powder and cook for 3 – 5 minutes more.

    3. Add the meat back into the pot and stir to combine. Stir in the tomato sauce and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Let simmer covered for 20 – 30 minutes. Stir in the corn meal and allow to simmer 30 minutes more. Serve with Fritos or corn bread.
