    1 lb pork tenderloin, cubed
    1 small onion, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    2 Tbsp Olive Oil
    1 can diced tomatoes (with juices)

While you are waiting for that to boil, brown the flour in a skillet; stirring often. Be careful not to burn the flour or it will ruin your chili.

When boiling, gradually whisk in flour making sure to get the lumps out.

Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for at least one hour. The longer you simmer the more flavorful the chili will be.

    I have the same recipe, it's a standard at our house but we add about 1 Tbls of ground cumin. I also skip a step by adding the flour to the onions and pork when they are done browning, then I add the water or chicken broth. - 4/8/08

    What an excellent base! This has been adapted in my country kitchen for our varied "hotness" tastes. My husband is cajun, so we added some cayenne peppers for him, me...the hotter the better, and for my daughter who is somewhat bland... green bell peppers and garlic. All 3 adaptations turned out gr8 - 2/22/11

    We like spicy, and I was so disappointed with the bland-ness of this. But I will adapt the recipe with my own spices; I'm sure that will make all the difference. - 2/25/10
