Warming Beef Chilli

by Stefan Kolsch

There’s nothing like a big, warming pot of beef chilli! Perfect for winter, it can bring a little Mediterranean or Mexican heat into an otherwise cold day. Featuring our Minced Steak, made from the offcuts of our traditionally matured sirloin, ribeye and even fillet steaks, you know the finished dish will be jam-packed with deep, beefy flavour. We’re suggesting you make a large potful, so you’ll have plenty for delicious leftovers…
1 HR 20 MINS


  • 2 packs Minced Steak (880g total)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 carrots, finely diced
  • 2 sticks celery, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 red peppers, roughly chopped
  • 3 tsp chilli powder
  • 3 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tins red kidney beans
  • 2 tins chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 small bunch (chopped) fresh coriander stalks
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  • Warming Beef Chilli


    • Heat the oil in a heavy pan on a medium high heat then brown the mince in batches, breaking up with a wooden spoon as required and setting aside when browned.
    • Add the onions and carrots and cook for 2 minutes, then add the celery, garlic and peppers and cook for a further 3-4 minutes until softened and lightly coloured.
    • Add the spices and cook for a further minute, stirring occasionally.
    • Add the beans, tomatoes, tomato puree, coriander stalks and the browned mince.
    • Fill one of the empty tomato tins with water and pour this into the pan. Add balsamic vinegar and season with a good pinch of salt and pepper.
    • Bring to the boil and turn the heat down to simmer for about an hour, stirring every now and again to stop it catching.
    • Serve with your choice of rice, tacos or jacket potatoes, with grated cheddar cheese, guacamole or soured cream as you prefer, sprinkling the coriander leaves on top.

    Large Potato RöstiCHEF'S TIP

    As with many slow cooked dishes, this tastes even better the day after it is made. Leftovers are great in a jacket potato, on a Large Rösti or in wraps with guacamole, cheese and salad. Try adding a squeeze of lime and a handful of chopped coriander to zest it all up…
