Guest Post & Steakhouse Chili Pot

This past weekend was a busy one....I was helping Britt at The London Food and Wine Show and the rest of the week has been none stop go, go, go!

I am making progress on the kitchen cabinets, I am hoping that they will be done this weekend (depending on my dad's schedule). I also have a few other little quick projects on the go that I will show you tomorrow.

Meanwhile here is another guest post from Nikki.....She is making a delicious steakhouse chili pot.

1 tablespoon        Extra virgin olive oil
4                         Slices lean, bacon, finely chopped
2                         Pounds ground beef
1                         Large onion, finely chopped
3-4                      Cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 tablespoons      Chili powder,
Salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup               Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup               Dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons      Hot sauce
1                         Can tomato sauce
2 cups                 Beef stock
Sour cream, for topping
1/2 cup                Flat leaf parsley, for topping


In a large chili pot, heat the olive oil, over medium-high to high heat. Add the bacon and cook until the fat renders, about 2 minutes. 

Add the beef and cook, stirring, until browned, 8-10 minutes.
Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add the garlic and chili powder, a little salt and lots of pepper.

In a bowl, stir together the Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, hot sauce and tomato sauce. Stir into the chili.
Stir in the beef stock and bring to boil, then lower the heat and cook until thickened, 6-7 minutes.

Serve in a shallow bowl with lots of sour cream and parsley.
