Slow Cooked Beef Chilli

By Tenina Holder

I love a good Mexican beef chilli....add some corn chips and more grated cheese than is really necessary, and I'm totally yours. I am a cheap date of course at the best of times. And this is cheap-ish...Don't make the mistake of using the best cut of meat out there, as it will result in tough and chewy chilli and then I'll have you all jumping onto Facebook asking me why....So go the cheaper cut, and take the time as mentioned; you won't regret it...

Slow Cooked Beef Chilli


  •   1 tsp cumin seeds
  •   1 tsp coriander seeds
  •   1/2 cinnamon stick
  •   1 tsp ground paprika
  •   2 tsp ground tumeric
  •   5 cloves of garlic
  •   1 red chilli
  •   1 onion, halved
  •   50 g EVOO
  •   2 tsp pink salt flakes
  •   100 g tomato paste
  •   1 Tin tomatoes, crushed or diced
  •   2 tbsp dark brown sugar
  •   1 - 2 tbsp Crio Bru grounds
  •   750 g beef casserole steak, cubed
  •   1 Tin kidney beans, drained
  •   Fresh grape tomatoes, grated cheese, sour cream, lemon zest, fresh coriander leaves, corn chips to garnish


  1. Dry fry the cumin, coriander, cinnamon stick, paprika and turmeric in a hot frypan on Induction 10 until just smoking. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

  2. Place into Thermo bowl and mill 10 sec/speed 10.

  3. Add garlic, chilli, onion, EVOO and salt and chop 2 sec/speed 4. Scrape down sides of bowl and saute 5 min/Varoma/speed 1.

  4. Add remaining ingredients other than kidney beans and garnishes and cook 45 min/100ºC/Reverse/speed 1.

  5. Add kidney beans and cook 2 min/100ºC/Reverse/speed 1.


Serve with steamed rice, and accompaniments as listed.

You may need to add time depending on the cut of beef you use. The cheaper cuts need longer to cook to break down the sinew, so if after the time is up, the beef is tough, add 15 minutes cooking time and retest. Continue until the beef literally falls apart with a fork.

Rump steak is recommended for a quicker cooking time, as little as 25 minutes cooking time..
