As another reviewer stated, I would make this as is and then change it for your tastes. As written, it is a "Bean chili with meat" recipe. That means that every bite will be full of beans with some slight meat pieces. If you want "Meat chili with beans", meaning each bite will have meat and a few beans, I would reduce the beans from 4 cans to 3 and increase the sirloin to 1 1/4 pounds if you like a beef stew texture or increase the ground meat to 1 1/2 pounds if you like a ground beef texture. AS FAR AS THE SUGAR goes, use 1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup and taste it when the chili is done. If you still think it needs sugar just stir it in. BAM sugar problem solved. Now you don't have to worry if you should use less sugar. Also, the recipe does not state to wash the beans or not. I dumped all four cans with juice in and it was fine. If you like thick chili (like spoon it on a cracker) then I would throw the juice out before I put the beans in or cook longer without a lid on. The next time I am going to add some corn so that it has a crunch to it.
