    Chef #302958's Note:

    This is a great dish for Friday Nights when your mates are over. You can just pop it in the oven and forget about it, spend your time entertaining instead. Adjust the heat by adding or removing jalapenos (you can always serve them on the side later if you need). Tastes great served with crusty bread. From Australian Good Taste mag.

    1. 1
      Cover beans with water in a large saucepan. Bring to the boil over high heat and cook for 10 minutes. Set aside for 1 hour to soak. Drain.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 160°C . Heat half the oil in a large pan and cook the beef in it over high heat until it's brown all over (2-3 minutes). Set the beef aside in a large casserole dish.
    3. 3
      Heat the remaining oil in the same pan. Add the onion and peppers and cook for 5 minutes or until onion is soft. Add spices and cook until aromatic (about 1 minute).
    4. 4
      Add tomato, jalapenos, and water and bring to the boil. Pour tomato mixture into the bowl containing the beef. Add the drained red kidney beans.
    5. 5
      Bake the mixture, covered, for about 2 hour or until beef and beans are tender. Remove dish from the oven and give it a few minutes to cool. Fish out all of the beef pieces and shred them up using two forks. Return the beef to the mixture and stir to combine.
    6. 6
      Serve with a dollop of sour cream and fresh coriander leaves, with crusty bread on the side.

      Made this using ground beef and no beans and the family loved it. Tasty and moist. Will make again using cubed beef. We had it in potato skins with sour cream and cheese on top, it was delicious.

      We have been having a cold spell here in California and this was the perfect thing to make to warm up the house. I made to directions except I did not add beans. My husband is a purist when it comes to chili and prefers no beans. The family really liked this and the only changes I would make would be to add more meat to make up the difference from the lack of beans and to add some chili powder (It was very mild). Will be making this again.
