Dudsie's Awesome Beef chilli

This is easily the best chilli I've ever tasted!! Best served with sour cream and basmati rice. Enjoy!!


Heat flame proof casserole on medium heat for a few mins. Add olive oil. Add bay leaves. Soften onions on low to medium heat till golden.

Turn up heat and add mince- brown. Turn down the heat and add chilli and garlic- stir, put lid on the pot and leave for at least 5 mins.

Remove lid and add red wine again over a high heat, reduce the wine by half. Then add the tom puree and tinned toms-stir. Leave for about half an hour lid off on low heat- bubbles just visible.

Add the kidney beans. Add the cumin seeds and oregano- stir and cook for further ten mins.

Hints 'n' Tips

I always get my chilli's from the same place, because its sometimes hard to gauge how hot they will be. Buying from the same place allows consistency in heat. I always use medium hot chiili's.

If you like a slightly more watery chilli then you could add a little beef stock for the last ten mins or more wine at the start.
