Chili

Postby TexianDoc » Thu Dec 04, 2014 10:27 am

Worst pot of red I've ever made, last night...bar none.

Still better than Wolf Brand (new version) or Hormel (ANY version).

I know what you mean Smokey. I always start out with Carol Shelby's recipe and then throw in whatever is handy and looks good.

Never put tomato in it. I've been pureeing some pintos and putting that in to thicken it.

I intentionally overcooked it, at the end. I've never done much fanciness on the front end, but tried marinating stew meat. Got busy at work and it sat for about 12 hours longer than I intended. VERY grape-y flavor to the meat (don't ask why I used wine instead of beer...thought I had a plan...)

Fresh ancho, chipotle, and ghost chilis for the paste helped. Overcooking to reduce the sharpness actually worked pretty well.

The second day's bowl was actually pretty good, but I don't think I'll use that particular set of ideas, again!

Does not sound like a good simple chili. I bet it would make a good stew. GO to the link below for the best roast I've ever eaten. I also did this as a stew in a dutch oven using coals from a campfire.....

I kinda like chili simple......... meat, onions, garlic, comino and ground chilis. Most of the time I brown the meat with everything dumped in at once. I add just enough liquid to keep it from sticking (usually beef stock)and then add liquid to get it as loose as I want after it has cooked a while.
