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

Losing weight

Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* You can create really nice smoothies with reduced carbohydrate yogurt. Admittedly, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you are missing your smoothies you can throw them together with reduced carb yogurt and fruit. Obviously, you will need to make sure you use only fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole fruit as the fiber is important too.

* Make low carb bread crumbs for deep fried foods. Whilst you can sometimes buy low carb breadcrumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carbohydrate bread. Simply toast the reduced carb bread in your oven on a sheet of baking paper. Once it is quite hard and crispy, process it in the food processor or blender. To store, keep in an airtight jar or container.

Foods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, mangos and winter squash)
These colorful foods are rich in carotenes thought by doctors to play a role in helping prevent cancer, spefically cancer of the stomach and lesophagus. Many also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every diet.
