I lived in Cincinnati for a summer. During my time there I developed a craving for Skyline and Graeter's ice cream.
Since moving back to Michigan, I still crave the Skyline. This recipe hits the spot. It IS what I remember. It may not be exact, but it captures the uniqueness of Skyline.
Based on other reviews ,I made the following changes:
-added 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate (too much next time I'll go with 1 oz.)
-I used Worcestershire sauce instead of steak sauce
-I added water while browning the beef to break it apart and achieve the Skyline consistency.
-From Skyline recipe 2 I added bayleaf and garlic cloves.
-cut the cinnamon in half.
It should be noted that official canned Skyline lists paprika as one of the ingredients.
Lastly, people should understand that this chili recipe is not your standard american chili. It is more of a sauce to be used over other things. Serve it over noodles or a hot dog with a ton of cheese (cheddar I think) and oyster crackers as a side.
Thank you for the recipe.
