This secret Texas beef chili recipe comes as a special gift to us, direct from the Goode Company Bar-B-Q restaurant in Houston, Texas, where Texas chili is king.

What You'll Need:
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (see Notes)
  • 1 large yellow onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 1/2 pound top sirloin beef, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 1/2 pound lean pork butt, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1/3 cup chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons masa harina (see Notes)
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in beef, pork, cumin, salt, and pepper, and cook an additional 5 to 7 minutes, or until meat is browned.
     
  2. Stir in beef broth, chili powder, and oregano; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer. Add the masa harina; stir well.
     
  3. Cover and continue to simmer over low heat 1 hour, or until meat is fork-tender, stirring occasionally.

  • If you would like a smokier taste, substitute 3 tablespoons bacon drippings for vegetable oil. And you should find masa harina near the cornmeal in your local supermarket; if you'd prefer, you can use fine cornmeal as a substitute.
