    Chuck works good or any other fatty, well marbled cut like short rib . You want enough fat so that when you cook it for a long time the fat will render and leave a very tender piece of meat. If you use something like sirloin, with little fat, it will dry out after a while and basically be like chewing on a tire. Texas chili uses actual chunks of meat instead of ground meat, correct? If so, then buying a chuck roast or boneless short ribs and cutting them into pieces would probably be best.

    I do it with chili and occasionally when I make stuffed peppers, my girlfriend always waits until the next day when she has me make bruschetta so the tomatoes soak up all the dressing

    Former professional chef here. You are right. :icon_idea

    The recipes that take longer and have mor ingredients are the better ones in my opinion.

    Bump. I pretty much do it this way. Generally red kidney, sometimes might add some chick peas as well, usually store bought puree though. Meat can vary, depending on what is leftover (brisket, pulled pork, pulled lamb all work well) and I like using a cased sausage as well.

    And I like to use beer instead of stock most of the time, sometimes a mixture depending on what's on hand. And definitely some old drippings to cook my onions, capsicums etc.

    Does anyone here add chocolate? I've seen a few recipes that add cocoa or even chocolate. Have tried it, prob not enough to have an effect though.

    Dammit shadow, I was going to make this thread and then cook a listed recipe every Sunday for a year or so.

    Maybe I'll hijack yours. I'll post my recipe later.

    Feel free to hijack. Or honestly, we could just pretend this thread doesn't exist and you could make your own.

    Hold up...

    Your recipe calls for 2/3 cup, but you said the first time around you used too much, at 1/2 cup.

    The hell you trying to pull here, TS?

    LOL

    Well shit. It was so long ago when I made that post that I don't even remember now.

    I actually haven't gone back to that recipe since I made that post since I just kept searching and trying new things.

    I do remember that if you overdo the BBQ sauce then your chili just gets weird and really sweet, so you gotta be careful. . .

    I'm in the bathroom, where I take a shit.
    I start with two onions diced. Fry them in my pot til the start to brown. Then I add a lot of diced garlic, maybe half a head, and sautée that. I then add tablespoon chili powder. Half a tablespoon cumin. Some ground cayenne pepper cumin salt pepper and then I add 2 lbs ground meat of choice and brown that. I add cut up bell pepper and some cut up hot peppers. A can of crushed tomatoes and a can of whole tomatoes with I rough cut so there is chunks. Then about three cans of rinsed beans. I add a few bay leaves which must be removed before eating. Bring to a boil and simmer for an hour or so, until the flavors meld, adjusting seasoning as needed and enough liquid has evaporated. Serve in a bowl topped with shredded cheddar fresh diced onions and sour cream.

    I like your use of bean variety. I do that as well and the garlic seems about right. I'm going to up my cumin and chili powder on the next batch.
