Chili Cook

I bought a trio of inexpensive sirloin tip steaks (marketed as "skillet steaks") for chili and decided today was the day to introduce the ingredients to the egg. I got the fire up to about 650 degrees and put the steaks on with a small bit of mesquite for about 2 minutes per side ... came off at medium rare. Naturally, I hade to try a bite to see if they were "worth eating" and danged if they weren't good. Shut down the lower vent and put miss daisy on.[p]I put tomato puree and diced tomatoes in my Lodge Dutch oven and added the meat cut into approximately 3/8" cubes along with a can of pinto beans, black beans, and light red kidneys. Added my super secret chili powder and put it on the egg (which had dropped to about 350 degrees). Let it all cook about 2 hours.[p]We just consumed mass quantities over some jasmine rice and I must say it was mmmmmmmmmm goooood! Just thought you would like to know.

    I developed this recipe because I need to minimize my sodium intake. I can make a pot of chili using no salt at all using this seasoning (which has a sodium count of approximately 20 mg for the whole recipe - or about 2 mg per tablespoon) and it is great. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

  • FatDog,
    Thanks for sharing! I'm going to make some up for myself. I bet the ancho peppers give your chili a rich dark color and fantastic flavor.

  • FatDog,
    next time, try rubbing those sirloins with the same secret mix you use in the chili... when i grill steak for chili i typically rub it heavy in chili powder and other stuff first. . .taking straight bites of the meat can be a little intense, but once in the chili it all mellows out and the meat has a great flavor .. ..
