Combination of beef and pork. Both cubed and not

ground. I like the flavor of the sauce better with 2 meats. I don't add beans either.

Ground sirloin and cubed sirloin. It's lower in fat content when trimmed properly and you get a good flavor from it. I use 3 pounds of each, but I make 18 quarts and it lasts an entire year.

I like ground and cubed sirloin, also. Sometimes, I grind up chicken for my chili, as well.

I used to use ground but lately I omit the meat altogether. I use beans, peppers, onions, tomatoes and spices.

Sirloin cut up into cubes. Why, it isn't an expensive cut(on sale somewhere), it's tender and it's tasty!!!!!

I buy boneless chuck roasts, trim the fat and gristle and cube it.
