Pork is another favorite go to. One of my favorite winter meals is 3/4" chop, breaded and fried in oil with mashed taters and country gravy. I will eat that until I'm in terrible pain.

I cook mine well, but a hog raised on concrete in a closed herd is probably not that big of a deal to eat it a little undercooked.

So Trichinella Spiralis is only a risk with wild or free range pork but not confinement pigs?

I am not sure about that eating before fire thing.

Is eating raw bacon ok?

That's not the case anymore. The reason was trichinosis but modern farming practices have pretty well eradicated it and the only cases in recent years has been from eating wild game - bear in particular. (I'm waiting for all the liberals who are pushing for free range pigs to learn a thing or two about trichinosis) Even the USDA has lowered their recommended cooking temperature to 145F but biologically trichinosis is killed at 137F but the USDA seems to think it is deader at 145F. Or is that more deader.

FWIW - with wild hogs I'll cook them well past these temps cause trichinosis scares me but I will eat farmed pork raw.

That might be good, but it ain't chili. If it's not beef or venison it's just soup. I suppose you put beans in it too?

Bone on center cut about 3/4". Seasoned with Cavender's all purpose Greek w/extra granulated garlic, then seared on both sides to an internal temp of 140.

Pork cooked well done is garbage and hardly worth feeding to the dogs. A thin chop fried quickly is hard to beat. And frying a thin chop is quick and easy, when you see blood turn the chop over count to 30 slowly and pull the chop out of the grease. Pork and venison need to be cooked in the same manner.

Yes. I learned the recipe on Outdoors Montana. Out west, I could get Anasazi Beans. They are a variety of pinto.
