A delicious Texas-style chili. The meat is slow cooked until it is completely tender. The beer helps to tenderize it and adds flavor to the dish so make sure to use a good brand.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating

Tasty and good texture. I added half the spices at the beginning and half during the last 30 minutes of cooking just to enhance them a bit more. The meat was wonderfully tender.

Simple and good. I liked that it uses cubed beef not ground beef. That's how I like chili.
