This hearty chili is truly a snap to prepare. After browning the beef and stirring in the spices to give them a slightly toasted flavor, you simply toss everything into a slow cooker and let the mixture simmer all day. Garnish with sour cream, chopped fresh parsley, and chopped red onion.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 ½ tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ¾ pound cubed beef stew meat
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (16 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (16 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 ¾ cups beef broth, divided
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 small green or red bell pepper, chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons barbeque sauce
  • 1 ½ tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, or more to taste, minced
  • ¾ teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add stew meat and brown for 2 minutes, stirring often. Add chili powder and cumin; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute more. Transfer meat to a large slow cooker.
  2. 2 Add diced tomatoes, black beans, kidney beans, 1 1/2 cups beef broth, onion, bell pepper, parsley, barbecue sauce, brown sugar, garlic, and salt to the slow cooker; stir until well combined.
  3. 3 Cover and cook on Low, stirring occasionally, until beef is tender, 6 to 8 hours. Thin the chili with remaining beef broth as it cooks, if consistency is too thick.

  1. I really liked this when I made it a couple of weeks ago, so I made it again. This time, I doubled the recipe so I had plenty to freeze. I also used cubed pork and beef 50/50 which added a nice depth to the meat flavors. I think next time I'm going to hold - Read more ...

  4. Easy, savory, hearty, and forgiving if you’re a cook like me who doesn’t always have all the ingredients or seasonings. I’ve made this three times now and I’ve never had parsley. I found this recipe by accident when I had stew meat but no carrots or potatoes. Now I make this rather than stew. It - Read more ...

  9. This chili was so simple to make and the family LOVED it! It did come out a tad thinner than I normally would like but I'll just add less beef broth to start next time and that should do the trick. I put this together the night before and that worked out great. I will - Read more ...
