    ratherbeswimmin''s Note:

    I am one who wouldn't know what to do if my chili didn't have beans in it. Keeping an open mind, I tried this and thought it was excellent. Sometimes, you can teach an old dog a few new tricks.

      DH hates beans, hates tomatoes, but LOVES chili - so this recipe of course caught my eye. In all the cooking I've done, I've never cooked a cut of beef other than ground, so this was a new experience. I used extra lean stew meat, which worked great. We don't drink a lot of alcohol, so I didn't have any on hand so I used chicken broth that I added 1 tbsp of liquid smoke and 2 tbsp of wors. sauce to. I also omitted the peppers and cooked the beef with the onions and garlic. The flavor was out of this world! The best chili we've ever had, by far. We enjoyed it as we watched kickoff for the Dallas Cowboys game. :) Thanks for sharing!

      It was really good. I served it as a conversation treat at a 42 party. I substituted oat meal for the cornbread, but I did serve it with cornbread instead of saltines.

      10 stars!! This was SOOO good. We like our chili with (Korean) rice, sour cream, cilantro and cheese. I used x-lean stew meat and it worked wonderfully, and I used a whole bottle of beer. I also let it cook overnight so it would be ready for the 11:00 kickoff of the OU/Texas game. Go OU! It is alot like my no tomato chili except mine uses hamburger meat. Now I have two great chili recipes! Thanks so much!!!!
