Using braising steak rather than minced beef gives it a stew like effect
"use chopped steak tips in place of ground beef. replaced one can of beans with a can of baked
beans. it added a sweet taste. it was a hit with all the family and friends"
Top-ranked recipe named "Chilli con carne"
1 Cut the meat into 2cm cubes discarding any excess fat. Pat dry on kitchen paper and season with salt and pepper.
2 Heat half the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan until very hot. Fry half the meat for approx. 10 mins. until browned. Drain, put to one side and repeat with remaining meat.
3 Add the onions to the pan with the chilli, paprika, cumin and sugar and fry gently for 10 mins. until deep golden and caramelised.
4 Return meat to the pan with the garlic, chopped tomatoes and stock.
5 Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered for 1 and 1/2 hrs adding the kidney beans in the last 30 mins.
6 Serve with spoonfulls of soured cream or creme fraishe and coriander to garnish

Beenz 1 year agoMagic! I added steak mince as well as the brazed steak and the guests loved it
L-rod 1 year agoThis was excellent for my family! I decreased the red pepper to 1/8 tsp for my kids' taste and added a large diced and fried jalapeno pepper. I also highly recommend using dried instead of canned kidney beans to avoid the preservative in all canned beans. Just boil water, dump in a pound or 2 of dried kidney beans, boil 2 minutes then remove from heat and let soak for 1 hour. Insert into recipe as noted above = much much better tasting than canned beans! I also increased the liquids to 1 - 32 oz carton of Swanson natural beef broth and 2 - 28 oz cans of Cento crushed tomatoes (also no preservatives in these) since I had extra beans to go with the 2lbs of beef in this recipe. Very tasty! This will definitely become one of our monthly favorites!!
