Beef and Pork Chilli

There is nothing like cold weather to make one hungry for some chilli! My husband loves it and it’s a mix of pork and beef to keep it a bit healthier.


My parents used to host a chilli cook-off every year where all of their friends would come over with different chilli recipes. My parents alway tried something new and exciting for the occasion, but I always preferred my dad’s basic chilli. It was easy, warming and hearty – everything chili should be. I recently adapted it to put in a slow-cooker, and I also mixed beef and pork meat so that it was a bit more heart-healthy, but also because pork is cheaper than beef, but holds the flavour really well, so you would never notice.

I hope you like it!

Slow-Cooker Beef and Pork Chilli (Serves 4 to 6)

  • 500g ground beef
  • 500 g ground pork
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 2 cans of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 can of kidney beans
  • 1 cup of beef stock
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp chilli powder

Dice the onion and chop the garlic

In a frying pan, sauce the onion and garlic, then add the ground beef and pork. Cook until brown.

In a slow cooker combine all of the remaining ingredients and the cooked meat, onions and garlic

Mix with a spoon and then cook on low for 6-8 hours

Alternatively, you can combine all of the ingredients in a large saucepan and simmer for 1-2 hours.

Keep warm and enjoy your chilli!
