PART 1

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 5 pounds ground sirloin
  • 1 pound filet mignon, cut into ¼ inch cubes (save time and
  • ask your butcher to cube the beef for you)
  • 2 cups onion, diced (about 1 large and 2 medium onions)
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds removed and diced
  • 1 bottle Guinness beer
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 32-ounce can, crushed fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 2 32-ounce boxes of beef broth
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1 can kidney beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup Mexican chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt

DIRECTIONS

  1. Melt the butter over medium high heat in a large casserole pot. Sauté meat in butter until browned.
  2. With a slotted spoon remove the browned meat and place in a large bowl. Once butter has cooled, use paper towels to soak up 3/4 of the butter, leaving about 2 tablespoons in the pot.
  3. Add remaining ingredients into the pot with butter and sauté for 5 minutes. Return meat to the pot. Cook for 30-60 minutes, uncovered. You can eat the chili at this point for a less spicy taste.
