Beef Brisket And Burger Stove Top Chili



First, this is NOT my Buffalo Dick's competition chili! This is home chili, using what good ingredients I have on hand! I use basic ingredients integral to my first string chili, but with certain variations....
In a large pot, place the following:
1. 1 can diced tomatoes
2. 1 can red beans, drained
3. 1 medium onion, diced large
4. 1 blanched tomato, skin off, chopped
5. 1 can beef broth, 6 oz. of V-8 juice, 4oz of POM pomegranate pure juice
6. 2 chopped Jalapeno peppers, diced fine
7. 4 tablespoons of mild dark chili powder
8. 2 " " chopped garlic
9. 1 " " Mexican oregano
10. Start all this on stove top until simmering
11. Brown 1LB. ground beef, seasoned with chili powder, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, ground, toasted cumin to taste.. to sweeten a bit use brown sugar, or some jelly, honey, etc.( about 1 big tablespoon)
12. Drain and add to chili
13. Add chopped beef brisket(already cooked)
14. Simmer all until tender, uncovered until proper thickness
15. Add 1 tablespoon of Cholula(Pequin pepper) hot sauce, and 1 teaspoon of cumin 20 min. before serving
16. Top with a soft mild cheese(shredded) with a side of Tortilla chips..
The people at POM were kind enough to send out samples of their fine product to me. I incorporated it into a delicious chili, and plan to do a salsa and BBQ sauce using it also!

How creative to us the POM!

Thanks for the competition disclaimer. Have you ever posted your award winning red chili? Way to sneak that POM in. I've never bought it or tried it. Might have to do that one of these days.

Pam- A little fruit flavor in chili is not something to discount! Peppers are fruits, you know...
Highlander- I have told people my "red gold" recipe, but you really have to be there and do it to understand...

Kate said...

What is that thing in the background? It looks like an apron. With hands in the wrong place.

Jen said...

What? No beer? No rattlesnake?

You should come to Texas for one of our cookoffs...

Barbara said...

Chili with Pom? Interesting idea! I do love Pom and leave it to the chili champ to find a way to incorporate it in his "at home" recipe.
Saw Giada make a Pom and chocolate chip sorbet yesterday and it sure looked good!

doggybloggy said...

beer and rattlesnake sounds pretty good - good job with the POM

Akelamalu said...

Pomegranite juice? I must try that!

I have made POM BBQ sauce in the past, and it is terrific. Needs a bit more brown sugar than usual, but I am sure you have your recipe all planned.

So, when is the Chili book coming out?

How about a series going into painful detail on competition chili... i would love it

Marjie said...

Funny how you're careful to tell us this is not the competition chili!

Vickie said...

Chili is one of my best dishes and I would never have thought of Pom juice. May have to try that. I definitely want a pomegranate apron. Funny!

buffalodick said...

Kate- That is exactly what it is!
Jen- I use beer in competition- more for the fact that everyone is drinking beer!
Barb-Normally I use grape jelly to sweeten, but brown sugar and POM worked perfectly in its place!
DogB- More coming, and better!
Ake- Healthy and mixes with vodka great.. less guilt!
Griller- Soon on the chili competitions!
Marjie- Being friendly to all is one thing..competing is another...
Vick- I have 30+ awards in chili..when I say it works, believe me-it does!

Kate said...

Hmmm Pom juice in chilli - sounds like I need to start another fire in the kitchen and try this one.

Sounds good. I love your apron!

tattytiara said...

Whoo that's a lot of hot stuff - my tongue is burning just thinking about it. Yes, I am ultra-wimp.

Chris said...

I guess the POM would be a good substitute for the prunes, etc, that some people use in their chili to thicken it.

And I'm glad you add beans because that's my kind of chili, I don't live in Texas ;)

Gloria said...

Dear Buffalo Dick I love this dish!
When you have time stopping by at my blog I have some awards for you!! gloria

buffalodick said...

Kate- I tweak chili so much to get it right..well, you have to be there!
C.J.- You'd love my tee shirts I make!
T.T.- This wasn't hot by my standards!
Chris- I never use thickeners.. an uncovered pot will simmer down to correct consistency. A touch of fruit and sweetness adds dimension to the chili- in a good way!
Gloria- Thank-you! I love chili!

Barbara said...

Got snow??

buffalodick said...

Barb- You know it! Thank God for the Plow boys! Major roads open, lots of idiot accidents... Drifting is an issue..I can't do anything about being born here, but if I had a half a brain- I'd move!

Katherine Aucoin said...

You are so right about adding fruit, but I've learned you can't tell people about the wierd ingredients until after they have eaten and burped ;-)

Hugs from a person stuck in NYC...now go vote for my ugly cake!

buffalodick said...

Katherine- Interesting color.. Camo? HeeHeeHee...God, I'm such an ass...

The Blonde Duck said...

buffalodick said...

blueviolet said...

Realliveman said...

That looks so good I am almost willing to drive the hundreds of miles in the snow just to get some!

Buff the Iron Chef!!

Sounds delish! I've used grape jelly as a sweetener in the past.

buffalodick said...

BlueV- It was a good batch..Chili dogs tonight!
RLM- I hate leaving the house in this weather!
G-man- Grape jelly is our go to sweetener in competitions..

Chef E said...

I got my POM and been wondering what to make, and that just hit the spot!

I am a Carnivore! Proud of it too...
