Ancho Macho Chili

By Avera

  • Makes 8 Servings

  • 5 pounds boneless beef chuck stew meat

  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil, divided

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 3 tablespoons ancho chile pepper powder or Mexican-style chili powder

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chiles

  • 3/4 cup dry red wine or chicken broth

  • 4 large roasted garlic cloves, minced

  1. Heat oven to 325F. Toss beef with salt and pepper. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a Dutch oven over high heat. Add one-third of the beef and brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and repeat two more times with beef and oil. Add the last 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to Dutch oven and cook onion until lightly browned. Stir in chile powder, tomatoes, wine and garlic; bring to a simmer. Return beef and accumulated juices to Dutch oven. Cover and bake 2 1/2 hours, stirring once halfway through cooking time, until beef is very tender.

Sounds good no serving size but high on the calories but will like the stew meat used… Thanks for the recipe!
