Red Beef Chili Recipe (Two Years National Champion Recipe)
Heat up a pan, and start adding the ingredients.
First: add 2 lbs. coarse ground beef, 1 tbsp cooking oil and 1 tbsp granulated onion. Mix the ingredients and lightly brown the meat.
Next, add 1 can (8oz) tomato sauce and 1 can (15oz) beef broth. Cook for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, add 1 tbsp light chili powder, 2 tbsp dark chili powder, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tbsp cumin, 1/2 tsp cayenne, 1/2 tsp black pepper and 1 tsp chicken granules (or 1 cube).
Cook for 1 additional hour.
Finally, add 1 tbsp light chili powder, 1 tbsp dark chili powder, 1 tsp paprika and 1/2 tbsp cumin. Add water if needed. If you want a less salty result, you could use 8 oz of beef broth earlier in the second step, and water at the end.
Leave covered and simmer for 30 minutes.
