Texas Chili Recipes, Hints & Videos
In any case, Texas Chili is a hearty one-pot meal that takes a short time to prepare and a long time to enjoy. You can serve it alone or with velvety cornbread and toppings such as cheese, onions, sour cream and jalapeños. But no matter how you serve it, be prepared to make a lot as everyone will want to come back for seconds.
Texas Chili Recipes
A simpler chili without beans, but with plenty of flavor.
2 lbs. beef chuck, cut into ½" cubes, all white removed
1 small onion, chopped fine
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and black pepper to taste
Water or beef broth
2-3 Tbs. chili powder, Adams preferred
1 Tbs. ground cumin
1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
2 Tbs. flour or cornmeal
1/2 C. water
In a heavy skillet, sauté the meat in a small amount of oil or shortening until it is gray and gives up its juices. Transfer the meat to a crock pot. Sauté lightly the onion and garlic, salt and black pepper to taste. Add to crock pot. Add enough water or beef broth to come 1/2 way up the meat. Put in the spices and tomato sauce dry. If the chili is not spicy enough for your taste, add a small amount of cayenne. Cover and cook 8 - 10 hours. Add flour or cornmeal to pot to thicken. If the chili is too dry, add a little more beef broth, if too watery, turn on high and remove cover and let dry out to desired consistency.
