Cook and stir sausagemeat in a large frying pan over medium heat until browned. Drain; place sausagemeat in a pot large enough to hold all ingredients. In same frying pan, cook and stir onion with minced beef over medium heat until beef is browned and onions are tender; drain and add to the large pot.
In same frying pan, cook and stir stewing steak over medium heat until browned. Without draining, pour stewing steak into the large pot.
Pour tomatoes, beer and water into the pot with meats. Stir in chilli powder, crushed chillies, white pepper, sugar and cinnamon. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Simmer until stewing steak is very tender, at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally and adding more water as needed. If you prefer a thicker chilli, thicken as needed with tomato puree. If using kidney beans, add them 10 minutes before serving, just in time to heat through.
