280 ml Vegetable stock
1 ts Oregano
1 tsp oil
1 ts Chilli flakes
1 ts Cumin powder

1 ts Sugar
2 Rashers bacon; diced

Original recipe makes 4



MMMMM--------------------------TO SERVE------------------------------- 140 ml Yoghurt or soured cream Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onions for several minutes. In batches add the minced steak and cook well over a high heat between each addition. This will seal the flavour well into the meat and improve the colour of the finished dish. Add the diced bacon rashers. Next, add the spices, chilli powder, chilli flakes, dried oregano and finally the cumin powder. Stir and cook the spices for 5 minutes to release their flavour and heat. Add a pinch of salt, can of chopped tomatoes, tomato pur?e and cook for several minutes. Add the beans, either red kidney or pinto or a combination of both. I am using the canned beans which do not require steeping and are more convenient. Add the stock and a pinch of salt which helps to regulate the heat of the chilli powder during cooking. Simmer for 1 1/2-2 hours, then serve with rice or potatoes. A little soured cream or yoghurt is delicious served on top of the chilli. Carlton Food Network Posted to Digest bread-bakers.v097.n,
