Base: Beef Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 12

1/3 Cup(s) approximately corn oil
6 Pound(s) Beef chuck, in 1/2-inch
Cup(s) Minced onion
1/3 Cup(s) Minced garlic
3 Cup(s) approximately beef broth
3 Cup(s) Flat beer
1 1/2 Cup(s) Water
1/4 Cup(s) High-quality chili powder
Or More To Taste
6 Pound(s) Tomatoes, three 2 lb. cans
drained and chopped
1/3 Cup(s) Tomato paste
1 1/2 Tablespoon(s) Minced fresh oregano
3 Tablespoon(s) Cumin seed
Salt, to taste
Cayenne pepper, to taste
Masa harina or cornmeal, if
In a large heavy skillet over moderately high heat, warm 3 tablespoons
of the oil. Brown beef in batches, adding more oil as necessary and
transferring meat with a slotted spoon to a large stockpot when well
browned. Do not crowd skillet. Reduce heat to moderately low. Add
onion and garlic and saute until softened (about 10 minutes). Add to
stockpot along with broth, beer, the water, chili powder, tomato,
tomato paste, and oregano. In a small skillet over low heat, toast
cumin seed until fragrant; do not allow to burn. Grind in an electric
minichopper or with a mortar and pestle. Add to stockpot. Over high
heat bring mixture to a simmer. Add salt, cayenne, and more chili
powder to taste. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook, partially
covered, until beef is tender (about 1-1/2 hours). Check occasionally
and add more broth if mixture seems dry. If chili is too thin when
meat is tender, stir in up to 2 tablespoons masa harina. Cook an
additional 5 minutes to thicken. Serve chili hot. NOTES : No Texan
worth his or her ten-gallon hat would put beans in chili. This one's
all beef, calling on beer and freshly ground cumin to give it
distinction. Masa harina, the finely ground corn used for corn
tortillas, is often used to thicken soups or chili. It is available in
Latin markets and some supermarkets. Posted to recipelu-digest Volume
