Black Bean and Steak Chili

One of my all time favorites when it comes to chili. I used to make this all the time with the trimmings of a few different cuts of beef, when I helped prep at a local restaurant. but any steak meat can be used, however the fattier Rib Eyes tend to add a nice flavor.

This chili is similar to the Black bean and chicken recipe found in the poultry section of the site, although the recipes vary a little either can substitute the chicken and beef.

2tbsp oil

3 cloves Garlic – Minced

sweet onion – chopped

green pepper – chopped

2 lbs steak cut into desired size (Sirloin, blade, rib eye or…)

2 diced tomatoes

1c water

1 can black beans -drained

2c corn (fresh or frozen)

1tbsp Paprika

1tbsp Cumin

1tsp coriander

1tsp cayenne pepper

Salt and pepper


In a large pot heat the oil, and add the garlic, onion and green pepper and Saute for a few minutes (until you begin to smell the aroma of the garlic – Ahhhh) add the steak and brown for approx 5 minutes. add all the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and then lower the heat so simmer, cover and cook for at least an hour, stirring every 10 minutes or so. Garnish with cheddar, and or sour cream.
