i'm going to be making chili this week in a similar way. thanks for the vid, maxamus.
i have a london broil that i got 2 for 1, so after eating the first one as a steak, i froze the second.
it'll get defrosted, cubed, then browned with onions and garlic. next, i add a large can of crushed tomatoes, and cans of red, navy, and black beans. also some diced green, orange and red bell peppers.
i make my own chili powder from dried chipotle and mulato peppers, and add that along with ground cumin.
the liquid is adjusted with a little beef stock, and it simmers for a while until everything comes together into a chili or thick stew.
btw, max, i noticed you're in nyc? whereabouts? i work on the upper west side and live in jersey.
