This is the chili I made for my friend Wat Hughe's 1998 bi-annual chili party. This is a Texas style red chili. Texas chili has no tomatoes but more importa
ntly NO BEANS! Some of the ingredients I used, like the chocolate and the Wyler
's granulated chicken broth in lieu of salt, are non-traditional but I like the
flavor it adds. I pretty much winged it during the preparation but kept track
of what I did so I could write it down. I think this batch turned out pretty darn good.
Rub the beef roast down good with a BBQ spice rub. I used Texas Two Step BBQ R
1328, Tomball, TX
377. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. The next day smo
3 hours at
225 degrees over pecan wood chunks.
Meanwhile, brown the beef bones in a large stock pot. Fill the pot with water and add celery, carrots, onion, garlic and bay leaves. Simmer on very low heat
for 10 hours. Strain the broth removing the bones and vegetables.
Dice the beef roast into 1/2 cubes. Brown in a large cast iron dutch oven chi
li pot. Add a little vegetable oil if necessary. Brown the beef in small batc
hes covering the bottom of the pot in a single layer. After the last batch is browned, remove from the pot and add the chopped onion and garlic. Stir until the onions are soft and lightly brown. Return the beef to the pot. Add the ch
8 cups of beef broth and bring to a simmer. Add the chocolate, granulated chicken broth, and coffee. Simmer uncovered for 10 hours on the lowest possible heat. Add more b
eef broth if the level boils down.
1/4 cup of masa harina with
3/4 cup of water. Stir into the chili and simmer until thickened.
Chili is best when it has had some time to age, at least a week is good. Serve
in a bowl with a hot, fresh flour tortilla.
