    steak chilli

    Someone on another thread asked for a good chili recipe using " steak "
    Now a bit of background for this recipee is in order . It is " Poppa Dick's " green chili . Poppa Dick was a dispatcher who once kept me safe , as well as when i was a new officer in town could steer me unerringly to any address , had i been there or not , all poppa dick needed to know is where i was right now . By the time i arrived i would not only know all about the address in question , but a good deal about the neighbors . Sometimes thier grandchildren . Anyhow in a " hispanic " town i happened to have a lot of little old ladys who plied me with great food for various reasons .

    In it all Poppa Dick would make chili , and share it with the few he liked , Somehow i always got at least a meal , and usualy a pot to take home . Well eventually Poppa Dick passed on and as a friend i attended to the dutys required of me by him . Among the things willed to me was the recipee for his chili . I will share an edited version with yall , and i reccomend it be done with venison thow you can do it with pork or beef .

    you will need :

    1 cup celery, sliced thin
    1 cup onion sliced same .
    1 (or more to taste ) can of tomatos .
    1 large ( i speak to half the standard single serving soup can size ) can of mild green chillis .
    2 to 4 lb of meat cubed into less than an inch sized cubes .
    1/2 teaspoon of garlic ( i use about a teaspoon and a half of fresh garlic )
    1/2 teaspoon of cellery salt , oregano , and cumin. that is a half each to taste .

    Now for prep , dump the meat ( cubed ) into a pot on high heat and sear it .
    It will stick and this is ok .

    once it is semi seared dump in the spices going with fresh first . once the onion goes transparent dump the sliced cellery . and just cook things till the cellery starts to become soft sturring all the time . Now add your liquids and cook the mix down sampling as you go till it cooks to a gravy consistency on the liquid .

    That is the base recipee . You can mod it by including diced jalapeños, habeneros , chilli powder , red pepper , ect to make it as hot and your flavor of hot as you want it . If you want it done with less than 8 hrs or so simmer time you can keep it on a high boil season at the last minute and use either corn starch or flower to thicken it . If you spice it up and its too hot , well put another can of tomatoes or god fobid a can of tomato sauce in it . If you have to settle it down a bit, then have to re bring it back just remember to respice and when you do remember that garlic and cumin are a marrage in chili and you are not likely to need more hot , just more chili taste .

    I hope this post tho not an absolute chili recipee ( which i abhore ) will help the poster who asked to make a chili he can be proud of . Texans can note that it is a true chili since it has no beans lol .

    Hey with me i have not eaten a venison roast in years . everything that is not a steak is " stew " ( include chili here lol ) . The reason i shared this recipee is because you can use it with any red meat . its not game specific , or pork specific , its do you have a couple pounds of meat . now i admit better cuts are better , but even poor cuts work if you simmer them and when you need to add liquid , add chicken stock , be it from a can or from bullion that you mix up . keep it rich , keep it close to spicy , and then simmer it down , if you want more hot later well powder your hot and stir it inn . the base recipe tho will serve a lot of us well .

    I find it bland , my wife finds it fine , I eat raw habeneros as a tv snack she does not .

    Oh yeah! Thanks for the recipe.

    It usually take me about 3 times to learn how to cook something. I usually stick with sandwiches. I'll definitely be attempting this because there's nowhere to get spicy food around here. Finally, chili with no beans...

    Celery, onions, tomatoes, chiles? How can I go wrong?

    I had a recipe for no-beans chili when I was in college, but I lost it.
    All I can remember is it included 2 cans of beer - one added to the ingredients and the other to drink while cooking.
