    Black Bean and Sirloin Chili

    Source of Recipe


    1/3 cup olive oil
    2 lbs boneless sirloin, cut into 1/2-in. cubes
    2 cups chopped yellow onion
    2 Tbsp minced garlic
    5 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped fine
    1/3 cup Masa Harina (corn tortilla flour mix)
    1/3 cup plus 1 tsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp cayenne
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1/2 tsp white pepper
    2 tsp. salt
    4 cups beef broth
    2 cups cooked black beans, rinsed and drained if canned
    grated mild Cheddar for Garnish
    minced red onion for garnish

    In a heavy kettle heat the oil over moderately high heat until it
    is hot but not smoking and in it brown the sirloin in batches,
    transferring it as it is browned with a slotted spoon to a bowl.
    In the fat remaining in the kettle cook the yellow onion, the garlic
    and the jalapenos over moderate heat, stirring, until the onion is
    softened, add the Masa Harina, the chili powder, the cayenne, the
    cumin, the white pepper, and the salt, and cook the mixture, stirring
    for 5 minutes. Add the broth and the sirloin and simmer the mixture,
    uncovered, stirring occasionally for 45 minutes, or until the meat
    is tender. Stir in the beans, simmer the mixture for 15 minutes,
    and serve the chili garnished with the Cheddar and the red onion.
    Serves 8.
