  1. Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Saute onions and bell pepper until tender. Add garlic, ground beef and stew meat and cook until the meat is no longer pink, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the tomatoes, beef broth and kidney beans to the stockpot, cover and bring to a boil. Let the mixture boil for 4 to 5 minutes then stir in the chili powder, Italian seasoning, salt and brown sugar. Simmer uncovered for about 2 hours, or until the chili thickens and beans are tender.

Flavor was great. However, if using dry beans, make sure to soak them overnight before adding them or they will still be hard after you're done cooking (The recipe didn't say to do that). My hus...

This was good, although not terribly memorable as far as chilis go. Admittedly, I didn't add the stew beef (I used only ground beef) but I don't think that would have altered the flavor profile ...

We love this chili and have received rave reviews from friends and family. I substituted the kidney beans for pinto beans and added some cumin. This chili is very easy to make.

I want to say this is a really great recipe but I made alot of changes to it. First I used a lb of ground turkey in place of the 1/2 lb of ground beef. I also added a sizable amount of chili pow...

Very Good, Extremely Hardy. Did use canned beans instead of the dry. Would make again and just tweek to my families taste buds, Thank You

For me it took about 3 hours for the stewing steak to be melt-in-the-mouth tender. I also added way more fresh minced garlic. I don't recommend cooking it uncovered - mine was covered, and I sti...

I really enjoyed the flavor of this chili! It was mild enough the kids enjoyed it, but not bland. I did omit the pepper due to family preference. I think this will be my "go-to" chili recipe!

Wow.. This is one of the best chili recipe! :) My husband and I loved it. I couldn't find dried kidney beans, so, I used a can of kidney beans instead. It turned out to be very good. Thank you f...

So much better than chili with canned beans! I used a full pound of ground beef, instead of adding 1/2 lb of stew meat. I used freshly canned tomatoes and added a little extra beef broth. Since ...

I liked this a lot and so did my family. I cut way down on the chili powder for my toddlers sake and added some onion powder, garlic salt and a bit more italian seasoning than it called for. T...
