When we grill steaks, I always grab an extra inexpensive cut and grill to medium, and then freeze for later use in chili. It adds an extra zing of smoky flavor. This is my husbands favorite Cave Man chili! We like it with both steak and ground beef!
1IN a large heavy non-stick pot over medium heat, brown the ground beef. When brown, stir in the steak cuts until cooked through. Remove from pot and set aside.
2Add oil to the pot, stir in the celery and onion. Sauté. Add the garlic and reduce to med-low heat.
3Pour broth, strained tomatoes, diced tomatoes and steak sauce into the pot. Stir. Add the meat back to the pot as well. Stir in the chili seasoning, brown sugar, ground chipotle, and liquid smoke. Cover. Let simmer, stirring periodically for three hours.
4After three hours, stir in the rinsed black beans. Continue to simmer for two more hours. Top with sour cream and cheese. Serves 8
