Start by slicing your steak into small thin squares or cubes along with chopping your onion and peppers. Simmer your steak, onions, and peppers in a covered skillet on low heat until meat is cooked thoroughly. Combine all ingredients into a 5 quart slow cooker and cook on low heat for 1- 2 hours or until sauce and beans are heated up. When heated, fill a bowl and throw some cheese and crackers on top and enjoy. Note: Depending on individual taste one may alter the amount of pepper flakes and cayenne pepper.
What I love most about chili is that there is NO WRONG WAY TO MAKE IT!
Everybody does chili different. It differs from the seasonings, meat used, beans, and everything… That’s why its so great. My father had burned me out on his chili many years ago, however, after hearing about someone making a steak chili I was excited to taste it. So I started looking at chili recipes online and I started picking out the common ingredients used and replaced some with others. Each batch I may do something different also. For example, my chili is usually on the thick chunky side, so I’ve replaced the tomato sauce with V8 juice to make it more watery. It takes all kinds and you can’t go wrong experimenting within reason.
So if you want to make a chili or try a new one, I suggest you look at multiple recipes and find what you like about them and create your own Frankenstein creation and you might fall in love with it like I did…
