I found this recipe on Yumsugar. I don't know who he is, but this recipe belongs to one Jason Miller of Primehouse NY. It was exactly the type of Chili recipe I have been searching for. I have made many pots of chili, some from this site, some from other sites, but for me, none as delicious as this. I hope someone will try it.

Directions See How It's Made
- Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed stock pot over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and cook until browned thoroughly about 8 minutes. Drain off excess fat.
- Add sirloin, garlic, onions, shallots, green and red bell peppers and continue to cook for an additional 12 minutes, making sure to thoroughly brown the sirloin and get a good carmelization on the vegetables.
- Add the tomato paste, espresso, dried seasonings, and sugar. Saute and thoroughly mix over medium heat for 10 minutes.
- Add beans, stock, tomatoes, beer, and hot peppers and let simmer for one hour over medium-low heat, stirring the mixture every 10 minutes.
- Reduce heat to low and continue to simmer for additional one hour, using the reserved drained tomato juice to thin if needed.
- Serve hot with the garnish of your choice: cheddar cheese, sour cream, green onions, etc.
