Rafters right . in fact I think it's against the law to call it chili once you put beans in it . you can call it chili with beans but not just chili. Not a serious crime just a ticket I think... ;-)


Here on the Bright Raven Simmental Farm the Prince has issued a standing Pardon for putting beans in your chili.

That's a banana pepper!

Beans on the side--if at all--pintos. And no, there ain't no such thing as chili beans--they're like unicorns, flyin cars and honest politicians. A few Springs ago, I actually heard a young guy with a furrin accent come in and ask the girl at the feed store for some chili beans to plant. I think maybe he was from Neptune or Pluto. :bang: :bang: I grabbed my stuff off the counter and left before the laughter started. Moron.

We buy boneless whole loins most of the time, chill it in the freezer till almost frozen then slice it into pork steaks. Not near as flavorful as some of the usual chops, but I'm not supposed to eat much fat.
Count me in that bunch that says pork and poultry has to be cooked thru well, but not dried out and burned. My wife is still of the old belief that apples or applesauce should be served with any pork. I can't stand to see or taste any blood in fried chicken.

No, it's a serious offense.

GB, I surrender on the practice of putting beans in chili. If callmefence says it is not the right thing to do, well, that resolves that!

Lots of folks in this part of the world call kidney beans - chili beans. Including my dear departed MA.

I place into evidence a can of Bush Chili Beans provided by the traveling Baptist Preacher and Bush Bean Salesman, our own Mr. Bigfoot.

You can't pardon yourself. I don't think politicians can even do that.

I like pork too. Butt is hard to beat.

I always heard you were supposed fully cook pork.


urban legend -- how did folks eat meat before fire .
.

Hmmm....and life expectancy was what? 35 years or so?

It's not a large window to get a chop done and remain juicy or dry it out because it's over cooked. You can do it. Just as a steak, a chop benifits from a 5 minute rest before cutting. Pull it off the fire just before its done and let it coast into perfection...... :D

Like Greybeard, I usually buy the loin and cut my own too. Vacuume seal and freeze.

Kidney beans by any other name are still kidney beans.

Wow you guys are good cooks. When I owned my restaurant we served a lot of pork and were one of the first two restaurants to receive the Illinois Pork Producers Assoc. "Award of Excellence". Our default internal temp was 145 degrees unless customer wanted something different.
Jogeephus got it exactly correct. Pigs (or any other animal for that matter) can only get the worm from eating other infected animals, so a strict vegetarian diet on concrete or pasture is the answer. At home we like about 140 degrees internal temp

In our camp, the simpler food is to prepare, the better. We like to spend time visiting rather than cooking. One of our favorite fireside meals is grilled pork chops. We buy a full pork loin when its on sale much cheaper than pork chops, slice it into boneless chops between 3/4-1 thick and separate them into quart ziplocs with two or three nice, thick chops in each bag. I add half a bottle of 30 minute marinade to each bag. Pick one you like. I find the garlic balsamic works really well with pork. The vinegar int he marinade makes the pork very tender and the garlic...well, its garlic You cant go wrong with garlic Seal them up and freeze the works.

When we pack for camping, the frozen pork chops go in the top of the cooler. Take them out of the cooler late morning and let them thaw. By the time they thaw, the marinade will have done its thing. I grill them for 8-12 minutes depending on the fire, and put em on a plate

The best part is that theres really no cleanup. Dispose of the ziploc bag and brush off the grill.

Fully cooking pork was because of Trichinosis, which at one point in time was the way they "thought" to prevent it. But they were wrong, and Trichinosis has been pretty much eliminated. On any menu I write, pork is default served "mid rare" according to the health dept. But it's one more battle I have with the health dept. as I feel their temps for pork are antiquated and based off beef steak temps instead of treating it like it's own animal. And that's because of ground pork.

And I will on occasion eat bacon raw because it's been cured, but it's a bad habit I picked up in culinary school.
