Print Friendly and PDF

After trying out recipes for weeks, Kenny has found his favorite chili recipe, perfect for those chilly nights in Seattle. Chuck steak and beer give it flavor and a hearty consistency. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 lb chuck steak, cut in cubes
Flour to dust
Oil to brown the steak
12 oz. tomato sauce
8 oz barbeque sauce
4 T chili powder
1 T cumin
1 tsp cinnamon
12 oz. beer
1 head of garlic cloves, peeled
1 onion, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, finely diced
Canned beans (pinto or kidney beans, whatever you prefer)

Dust the steak with flour and brown in a cast iron deep pan or pot. Pour in the tomato sauce, barbeque sauce, seasonings, garlic, onion, jalapeno, but only put in 6 oz. of beer. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook for 1-2 hours. Add remainder of beer when the chili thickens and simmer again until the chili is reduced to a thick consistency.
