Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 ½ lb ground beef
  • 1 lb of chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 red chillies, thinly sliced ( or 2 tablespoons dried chilli flakes )
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 beef stock cube
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 2x tins red kidney beans, drained and washed
  • 1 large bottle of red wine ( a cup for the chilli, the rest for the chef )
Instructions
  1. First open the wine, pour a glass and sip. Don’t worry, some of it will go in the chili.
  2. Next, prepare the onion, garlic and chillies. Add the oil to a large sauce pan and heat. Fry the garlic and onion in the oil until they start to soften. Add the fresh, chopped chillies and fry for a further couple of minutes. Now, add the spices and fry for another 2 minutes, stirring well. Add the ground beef and brown. Now add the wine and reduce for another 2 minutes.Now add all the other ingredients, stir and season with a good helping of salt and fresh ground black pepper. Bring to a boil, turn the heat down low, cover and cook for an hour, stirring occasionally. Sit down and have another glass of wine – you deserve it after all that hard work. Serve with grated cheese and a good handful of fresh, chopped coriander, rice and a green salad.Much like curry, I think this tastes better after leaving for a day or two, so I tend to make this a few days before I plan to serve it, but you can eat it immediately. It freezes well and keeps well in the fridge
