|Ok, here you go folks the orginal Gin-U-Whine, load and cock it, stick yor finger in the socket, home grown chili |
Start early in the morning cause it takes all day;
You may want to get some good folks included in on this as it is alot of work.
List of Ingredients
|2 1/2 lbs. chuck steak|
2 Tbsp. oil
2 jalapeno peppers, chopped (seeds opt.)
1 clove garlic
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. cayenne pepper; more or less depending on how brave you are
2 tsp. paprika
3 1/2 Tbsp. chili powder
2 ( 8oz) cans tomato sauce
1 (24-oz.) can whole tomatoes
1 bottle beer (Not light beer)
1 tsp. sugar
3 - 4 Tbsp. masa
1 can Trappey light red kidney beans, drained, optional
2 can Trappey pinto beans, drained, optional
Cheddar Cheese for topping; optional
In large pot; cast iron would be nice, add the oil and stir in the onion.
Don't brown em, just cook em until tender.
Add the chuck steak and brown it
Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, beer and spices
Simmer on low fire until the meat is tender and the tomatoes are cooked down
Now you gotta believe me here, the whole tomatoes will cook down and just disappear.
It might take 3 - 4 hours but just keep adding water so it won't burn and making sure you keep it stirred.
Now, when the tomatoes are cooked down; gone, you gotta do something else to it
By this time, it looks and tastes like chili
If you don't want the beans in it, add salt to taste and let it cook down to a light gravy and add masa until it 'binds'
Most of the time it takes 3 - 4 Tbsp.; you'll know.
Now, if you want the beans in it, when the tomatoes are gone, Add the beans( water if it needs it) and continue to cook until the kidney beans are tender (those are the Big ones)
It may take a couple of hours for 'em to get temder
Now let it cook down to the light gravy, salt to taste and masa to bind it
Serve with grated Cheddar Cheese on top and mass quantities of cold beer.
