Eats: Chili Stew

6:23 PM


Just a few months ago it was the norm to come home after work and cook dinner on a nightly basis, but since moving home, I am lucky enough to have two parents who are exceptional cooks (where'd you think I got it from anyways?). I received some beef tips from a friend of mine who works in a restaurant, and I decided to make a chili for the 'rents and my brothers. I chopped up all of the veggies, and cooked the beef tips the night before, and just threw everything in the fridge overnight. The next morning, I tossed it all in a giant crock pot, and let it cook all day while I was at work, and it came out perfectly. 


2 lbs beef tips, cooked in olive oil, seasoned with chili, black pepper, and sea salt. 
1 can of sweet corn, drained. 
1 can of red beans, drained. 
4 carrots, peeled & chopped
4 stalks of celery. chopped
1 can of stewed tomatoes
1 can of chopped tomatoes
1 can of water
2 bell peppers, chopped
3 chili peppers, chopped
Salt & Pepper to taste.

It cooked on low, for about 8 hours. Then we topped it with sour cream, shredded cheese, and some crusty bread that my mom had picked up. Then feasted on it for about a week because there was SO MUCH.  My brother Mark referred to it as chili-stew, so there you go. Happy eats!

  1. It sounds amazing and now i want chili and beef but i am lazy so i will just keep looking at this pic :)

  2. Your food is always so amazing looking! I've always loved it.

  3. Crock pots are like magic or some shit. And again, I say, "Nice work!" :-)

  4. Why must this look so divine?! It's like the food equivalent of a cozy sweater!

    I've been contemplating a crock pot. Do you recommend? What size is good to get {there are so many}? Have you ever made oatmeal in yours? That's my main reason for wanting one, but I honestly have no clue how to cook - it's horrible. :P


  5. Oooh, I've been thinking about trying to make some kind of chilli recipe. I like the sound of the base for this (minus the celery, because that stuff is evil), I think I might give it a go for a veggie version :)

  6. Chili always tastes so good this time of year.

  7. Delish! Yum! and perfect for our weather right now.


Talk nerdy to me.
