Steak n’Bean Chili

Here is a chili recipe that cooks in a slow cooker that has steak, ground sirloin and sausage with 4 kinds of beans (white, brown, black, red) which makes for a colorful dish. Here are the ingredients:

1 lb. ground sirloin (low fat content)

1 lb. steak cut into 1/2″ or smaller cubes

1 lb. smoked sausage cut into slices

1 large onion diced

1 yellow bell pepper diced

1 stalk celery diced

1 serrano pepper diced small (add another if you want hotter)

1 can each (15 oz) of white beans, pinto beans, black beans and kidney beans

1 can (15 oz) tomato paste

1 can (15 oz) diced stewed tomatoes

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon cumin powder

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1-1/2 teaspoon salt and dusting of black pepper

Brown the ground meat and drain. Add to the crock pot. Then brown the steak and sausage and add to pot. Saute the onion until translucent then the bell pepper and celery and continue to saute until soft. Add to the pot. Add all the seasonings. Drain and rinse the beans and add with tomatoes and paste to the pot. Stir and put the crockpot on low for around 4 hours.

I like to serve it on a bed of rice. That’s it – really easy for a hearty dish that satisfies a crowd. Some people like sour cream, grated cheese, chopped onion as condiments but for me it’s not needed. You can use green bell pepper or jalapeno peppers if desired but I prefer the yellow and serrano flavors. Enjoy!
