Our house full of young men rate this as their absolutely favorite chili recipe. Definitely a Man Meal! We will have to triple it next time! We substituted a 'California Brisket' also called a Tri-Tip Roast that is basically the tail end of a sirloin roast to make this a little leaner. Thank You for a terrific recipe!!!
Just made this recipe yesterday - absolutely delicious! Bought a 4.75 lb brisket at Costco and cut in half (froze remaining half). Made as directed except:
1. sauteed onion, pepper (green) and garlic first until soft
2. used whole can of tomatoes and reduced beef broth to 1/2 cup - didn't see any point in throwing tomato juice down drain
3. drained the black beans - didn't wash
Brisket was extremely tender and much more flavorful than ground beef. Served over cornbread.
This recipe is a keeper - especially now as fall/winter is upon us.
