    Supereasy to prep for supper. We doubled for 8 servings using what we had on hand: Sam Adams, one can dark kidney/one light, one can diced tomatoes/one petite diced and simmered for well over an hour to taste. Not bad.

    Made this as the recipe stated and came out great. My family loved it and the best part is was even better the next day.

    This was amazing! Don't understand the dry comment or a review that's not great when you've subbed something. In any event - used a very lean ground sirloin, stockyard oatmeal stout (from Trader Joe's) and even omitted the oil at the beginning (unnecessary). It was so tasty! The only change I made (could this have made it THAT much better?) was to use Dinosaur BBQ cajun foreplay seasoning in place of the spices as I was out of chile powder (this basically just has chili powder, paprika, garlic and salt in it so a decent swap). Would make again for sure.

    I thought this was very good. A nice change from our usual chili. I added oregano and cumin and used Newcastle because it's all I had in the house.

    Followed the recipe and found it to be a little dry so I added more beer and that helped. It's not traditional chili and I probably wouldn't make it again.

    Came out a little more "brothy" than I anticipated but it had good flavor.

    I made recipe as is but did add some beef broth because I let it simmer longer than called for and I was afraid it would get too thick. Used Guinness Draught and it was excellent. As my family said, its a keeper and will replace my usual chili - it was that good!

    My husband and I really liked this dish....our grocery store didn't have any ground top sirloin, so we substituted extra lean ground turkey which made it even healthier! I used Jubelale Winter Ale for the beer, but my husband (who's a brewer) said it would also be good with Moose Drool Brown Ale (Big Sky Brewing) - available in the Midwest to the West Coast. We would make it again!

    We enjoyed this dish very much. I used regular paprika. For the beer I used Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel,it is available at our local store by the single bottle for about $3.00. Served with cornbread and fresh fruit for dessert.

    My family loves this chili! I make a double batch every time. We use ground turkey or chicken and light beer to lighten up the recipe a little more.

    This is a fantastic chili! I added lots of extra chili powder and some more paprika (turned out I added more beef than the recipe asked for) and a touch of cinnamon for some Cincinnati flavor. Perfect consistency. I will definitely make this again soon!

    when ground beef is on sale i brown it with one cup of onion per/lb and throw it in the freeer in one pound packages. i threw one beef package along with the ingrediants in my slow cooker. after one hour this had a bitter beer flavor, i used stone levitation, but after simmering for 5 hours the flavor was perfect.

    Did not like this at all. Followed recipe exactly as stated and while it smelled wonderful while cooking, it tasted extremely bland.

    This was tasty but seemed very heavy on the beans. I didn't have any of the problems/complaints that the 1-star reviewers did - I wonder if the choice of beer makes a difference? We used Negra Modelo. I also subbed fire roasted dice tomatoes w/chiles for the whole tomatoes, and I used hot turkey sausage instead of sirloin because we prefer sausage in chili. Also served with cornbread, which we crumbled on top. Pretty yummy.

    This was very disappointing especially considering how good it smelled while cooking. The taste was too acidic, and the different flavors did not meld together very well for us. If you really want to try a delicious and unique chili, I recommend CL's "Chili with Chipotle and Chocolate." That one is truly a keeper!

    I did NOT like this recipes. I think it's the beer that really gave it an odd/off flavor. The only substitution I made was adding 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne along with the 1 teaspoon paprika because I didn't have hot paprika.

    Good but not great chili recipe and a little too spicy for our tastes.

  • erikisst Posted: 10/14/13

    I used light beer and added chopped red and green pepper (1/2 each) to bulk up the veggies. Cooked in the crock pot on low for about 6 hrs. Really brought out the flavor of the beer. Not usually a big fan of kidney beans but I think they worked well in this recipe (especially cooking them low and slow;). Would definitely make this again - in fact, again next week for my dad!
