"This was a hit. I forgot to put in the 2 cups of water and I used regular pork loin instead of tenderloin and it works just fine. With the length of time it takes to cook, the meat gets very tender. Next time I think I might try it in the slow cooker."
"I have made this many times. It's my favorite chili. I halved the recipe as there are just 3 of us. Also, for the people that say it's too many beans, just leave out a can or two. And it tastes best if you follow the recipe and use a fresh pork tenderloin, not a left over piece of meat."
"Very good, although, I used 2 lb. of pork,"
"I meant to say could get away with using a pork loin roast!"
"Way too many beans and a waste of pork tenderloin. You get away with using pork loin roast, it would taste the same. I was disappointed in this recipe."
