This steak chili is the best beef chili recipe ever! Tender chunks of beef cooked in a deep, rich, spicy and smoky sauce. I go easy on the beans, but you can either skip them or add extra if you like. The recipe requires over an hour of preparation and active cook time, plus several hours to simmer on the stove, so it’s best to make it on a lazy weekend or when you have enough time. You might also consider doubling the recipe, because you can freeze some for another day or use leftovers for tacos or lunch.


Approximately 600g beef of high back or shoulder without bones (stay away from meat generically packaged as “stew meat”, especially if it looks lean, it will never get tender).
