I made this recently using chopped sirloin, it was really good! If you have any dried chipotle chili powder then throw in a tablesoon. You can use wine in place of the beer if desired. Serve this with crusty buns and a side salad, this dish is delicious! I strongly advise to make this a day ahead and refrigerate, the flavors will blend together to create a more intense flavor.
- 3 -5 tablespoons vegetable oil (more as needed)
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons seasoning salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 lbs sirloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 onions, chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh minced garlic
- 1 -2 teaspoon dried chili pepper flakes (optional, add in if you like extreme heat!)
- 1 large green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
- 2 jalapenos, seeded and finely chopped (I just use the ones packed in the jar)
- 2 -4 tablespoons chili powder (or to taste)
- 2 -3 tablespoons cumin (or to taste)
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 2 cups consomme or 2 cups beef broth
- 1 (12 ounce) bottle beer
- 4 cups crushed tomatoes
- 2 cups canned black beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 cups red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- salt and pepper
- shredded cheddar cheese
- chopped onion
- sour cream
- In a shallow dish mix together flour, seasoning salt and cayenne pepper.
- Heat oil in a large Dutch oven or pot.
- Toss the sirloin with the flour mixture to coat, then brown well on all sides shaking off any excess flour then remove to a plate or bowl.
- In the same pot saute the onions and dried chili flakes (if using) for about 3 minutes.
- Add in green and red bell peppers with jalapeno peppers and garlic; cook for about 3-4 minutes.
- Add in chili powder, cumin and oregano, then return the browned beef back to the pot along with any juices from the plate or bowl.
- Pour in beer and consumme or beef broth; stir with a wooden spoon and bring to a boil.
- Cover and reduce heat to a simmer; cook 1-1/2 hours or until the beef is tender.
- After the 1-1/2 hours, add in the crushed tomatoes and cook for another 35-40 minutes.
- Add in black beans and kidney beans, season with salt and pepper; simmer for another 20 minutes.
- Ladle into bowls then top with sour cream cheese and onions.
I made this the other day for our company coming in...I cut the heat back a little not knowing their heat level (which I wish I would have left it alone). Everyone totally enjoyed this and just about licked their bowls clean. Served with a green salad and some bread. Made for Spring into Spring with Garlic and Soy tag game.
Wonderful and delicious. It took me longer than 30 minutes for prep but I'm slow with cutting. I went easy on the spices because my family does not like things hot. The flavor is great and I highly recommend this recipe.
