Al Roker's Spectacular Chili



  • 2 pounds chuck steak, cubed in bite-size pieces
  • 1 pound hot Italian sausage, removed from casings
  • 2 large onions, diced
  • 12 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon pure chili powder
  • 1 (32 ounce) can crushed tomatoes

  • 1 (16 ounce) can Northern beans
  • 1 (16 ounce) can dark red kidney beans

  1. Brown the beef and sausages in a large Dutch oven. Remove the meat and reserve. Drain off the fat, reserving about two tablespoons.
  2. Sauté the onions and garlic until translucent, about 7 to 7 minutes.
  3. Add the cumin, paprika and chili powder. Add the tomatoes and the beef into the Dutch oven. Stir the whole pot, and simmer on the stove for about 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Add the three cans of beans, and simmer for another 30 minutes.
  5. Serve with dishes of chopped scallions, sour cream and shredded Cheddar cheese. Cornbread is great with this also!
