My Pulled Pork Chili recipe is an easy slow cooker recipe that is great as an easy weeknight meal for your family. Full of tender slow cooked and incredibly flavorful pork, beans, tomatoes and seasonings, it's hearty and perfect for game day, too!
Cut pork butt roast into several large chunks, trimming some of the fat as you go. Season with salt and pepper.
(Optional step) Heat a skillet with a tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Sear each side of the meat for 1-2 minutes per side, or until browned. *Tip - the searing helps caramelize the meat and lock in the flavor, but if you are pressed for time you can skip this step. For a thicker chili, dredge the meat in a little bit of flour first.
To the slow cooker, add onions, meat, crushed tomatoes, chili beans (undrained), green chiles, chili powder, garlic and salt. Stir and cover. Set to high heat for 5-6 hours or low heat for 7-8 hours.
Shred pork in the slow cooker with two forks (or remove to a cutting board, shred, then return to the slow cooker). Cook on high for an additional 30 minutes.
Ladle into bowls and serve hot, garnished with sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, cilantro or parsley and corn chips.
For the stovetop, cut the meat into small chunks, then boil in chicken broth. Once cooked through and tender (30 minutes to an hour). Drain liquid, shred, and return to the pot. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes.
