About this recipe: This chilli dish is packed full of protein. Sausagemeat is simmered with beef mince, stewing steak, tomatoes, beer, seasonings and kidney beans. Serve with a jacket potato, rice or corn bread.
After a little tweaking this was a delicious chili that will probably even replace my dads chili that I've loved and made for years! Instead of the water I used a 46oz can of tomato juice. (we like our chili more soupy rather than stewy and I think it added the flavor that it needed) I also garnished each bowl with a dollop of sour cream. My family loved it. Especially my husband who loved the flavor. Will definitely be making this a lot this winter. - 23 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
It is the best ever...sweet and spicy - 29 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Four stars for a good starting point. Used ground pork instead of Italian Sausage due to allergies from fennel/anise seeds. Omitted the sugar and added some balsamic vinegar for acidity. It was good, however i did miss the green chilies that I normally put in chili. I also missed the garlic, so I added a few tbsp of minced garlic plus garlic powder. The cinnamon was a surprising addition that we all liked. Thanks! - 28 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
