All-Beef Texas Chili Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1/3 cup (approximately) corn oil
6 lb beef chuck -- in 1/2-inch
1 cubes
1 cup minced onion
1/3 cup minced garlic
3 cup (approximately) beef broth
3 cup flat beer
1 1/2 cup water
1/4 cup high-quality chili powder,
1 or more -- to taste
6 lb tomatoes (three 2 lb. cans)
1 drained and chopped
1/3 cup tomato paste
1 1/2 tbsp minced fresh oregano
3 tbsp cumin seed
1 salt -- to taste
1 cayenne pepper -- to taste
1 masa harina or cornmeal --
1 if needed

Recipe Preparation

1. In a large heavy skillet over moderately high heat, warm 3
tablespoons of the oil. Brown beef in batches, adding more oil as
necessary and transferring meat with a slotted spoon to a large
stockpot when well browned. Do not crowd skillet.

2. Reduce heat to moderately low. Add onion and garlic and saute until
softened (about 10 minutes). Add to stockpot along with broth, beer,
the water, chili powder, tomato, tomato paste, and oregano.

3. In a small skillet over low heat, toast cumin seed until fragrant;
do not allow to burn. Grind in an electric minichopper or with a
mortar and pestle. Add to stockpot.

4. Over high heat bring mixture to a simmer. Add salt, cayenne, and
more chili powder to taste. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and
cook, partially covered, until beef is tender (about 1-1/2 hours).
Check occasionally and add more broth if mixture seems dry. If chili
is too thin when meat is tender, stir in up to 2 tablespoons masa
harina. Cook an additional 5 minutes to thicken. Serve chili hot.

Food Tips of the Week

Diet hints and tips

In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
The argument against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Reducing carbs might mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which should be part of any sensible diet, in particular those provied by vegetables, grains and fruits.
Most of the unpleasant side-effects reported, such as general tiredness, stomach upsets, or headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, chives and spring onions)

The onion, leek and garlic range of vegetables is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is precious little definitive proof published, allyl sulphides are also believed to help with colds, arteriosclerosis and fatigue.

Foods containing allyl sulfides also have a low calorie count, so you should add them to your diet system.
