Thirty-Minute Beef Chili

(1 Votes)
30 Min

They say there's no better chili than in Texas, but now we can have those same Texas flavors wherever we live. We must admit that we added the tomatoes ourselves, 'cause true Texas chili doesn't ever have tomatoes (or beans, either).

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound lean beef cubed steaks
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 box (9 ounces) frozen whole kernel corn, thawed

What to Do

  1. Cut each steak lengthwise into 1-inch-wide strips, then cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, oregano and cayenne pepper. Sprinkle beef with 2 teaspoons of seasoning mix.
  3. In a large deep skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Stir fry beef and onion 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt.
  4. Add tomatoes (breaking them up with the back of a spoon), corn, and remaining seasoning mix. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes.

You do NOT put corn in Texas chili!

We do not put corn in our chili either!!

Made this last night. Great for a quick Chili. I did use crushed garlic instead of powder, and added some chopped green pepper and one diced jalepeno pepper. It was really good.

Herb Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce

Instead of cooking ham or prime rib for Easter, why not try something new this year? Our Herb-Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce may look and sound fancy, but it's really easy to do. It's basically a rack of lamb that's coated with herbs and spices before it's roasted to perfection. Just before serving, it's finished off with a mint-wine reduction. The end result is an Easter-worthy main dish that'll impress everyone at the table.
