Rich and tasty Beefy Chili is one hearty meal. Top with cheese and serve with a big hunk of cornbread for a dish sure to satisfy.

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 pounds lean boneless beef chuck roast, well-trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper sauce (like Tabasco®)
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained

What to Do

  1. In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; add beef and cook 5 minutes. Drain off liquid. Add onion and garlic, and sauté 5 minutes, stirring frequently, or until beef is browned on all sides and onion is tender.
  2. Add chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper sauce; stir and cook 1 minute. Add water and chilies and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove lid and simmer 45 more minutes, or until beef is fork-tender, stirring occasionally.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I might give this a try ...just because its different and sound good.

I like my chili with beans and tomatoes. This is more like a spicy beef roast. js

To BIGGSY -Chili con Carne means peppers with meat. Learn Spanish. Real chili has No beans(at least in Mexico & Texas)

You wanna try this again? 3 pounds of roast cut in 1" cubes in a large sauce pan? Not unless your "large sauce pan" is 10" across like a skillet. I have a hard time making spanish rice in an 10" skillet with rice and two bell peppers. I can't imagine making this recipe in less space. Any thoughts? A soup pot I can see.

this very simular to my recipe, except i use about 6 chopped jalapeno instead of canned chilies. this is texas chili. no beans,no tomatoes,no rice. if you want beans go to new york.

My Family will love this one cause they don't like beans at all....Me i hope it is good cause i love beans in my chili

how can you call it chili with no beans?

In my opinion, chili w/o beans is only good for chili dogs. I don't know where "skulltaker" is from in Texas but I have lived in SA Austin, Lubbock, Dallas and Amarillo and they all have beans in the chili! However, I do know a man in Austin who is allergic to beans so his chili would not have them.


Chili con Carne,means Chili with BEEF

WHERE ARE THE BEANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
