Steak Tip and Shiraz Chilli

"This is a hearty, meaty chili, with heat, tannins, and freshness. The steak tips are marinated in Black Box shiraz, which truly imparts the delicious flavor into the meat. Shiraz is also added to a rich tomato, beef stock, and vegetable and bean filled base. Heat comes from poblano and jalapeño peppers. This is great for a crowd, or for a fun family night."

  1. Chop steak tips, against the grain into 1/2 inch pieces. Marinate in Black Box shiraz and soy sauce for 1 hour, in the fridge.
  2. Saute onion, yellow pepper, mushrooms, and poblano pepper in olive oil, until tender. Add chili powder, cumin, and adobo seasoning and cook for another few minutes. 
  3. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef sauce, and combine. Heat on medium, and add carrots, beans, corn, jalapeños, and Black Box shiraz and tomato paste. Place lid on, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 20 minutes.
  4. Drain steak tips, and pat dry. Heat a skillet, add olive oil and more chili powder, and sauté until browned. Add tips and any liquid into the chili. 
  5. Simmer with lid on for 2 hours, removing lid for the last 20 minutes. Add salt ad pepper to taste. 
  6. Serve with fresh lime juice, diced green onion, and crumbled Queso fresco.
  7. TIPS: You can adjust the heat, either by adding less, or no jalapeños, and by adding sour cream as a topping. This is a very meaty chili, so if you want to stretch it out to feed a larger group, you can just add more veggies.
