Sirloin Steak Chili

A hearty chili with tender pieces of sirloin steak, bacon, fresh corn off the cob, beans, peppers and onions swimming in a spicy sea of tomatoes.

I spent most of my life avoiding any and all steak. I’m a picky eater. In recovery. Sometimes Most of the time I judge food by how it looks and steak just didn’t look good to me.

I’m not afraid to admit when I’m wrong. I was wrong.

So I fell in love with sirloin steak. Last week. Don’t laugh. People fall in love with food. It happens all the time.

I’ve been busy exploring all that sirloin steak has to offer which is where this chili came from.

The only thing that possibly makes sirloin steak better is bacon. Salty, fatty bacon. Packed with so much flavor. You won my heart a long time ago.

This is turning into a sappy love story.

Make this.

The End.

INGREDIENTS:

8 slices bacon
1 pound Sirloin steak, visible fat trimmed, cubed 3/4” pieces
1 large onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chile powder
2 teaspoons Mexican oregano, crushed between fingertips

  2. Add spices and crumble half the bacon back into the pan. Stir well and cook 1-2 minutes. Add tomatoes, beans and corn. Season again with salt and pepper. Simmer 35-45 minutes or until steak is tender. Taste often and season as needed.

    Well Reeni, we had something in common (until last week!). I’ve never been a steak eater. It just doesn’t appeal to me. I do cook steak for my father about once a week though (when he visits). He’s a meat & potatoes Irish Man. When I was young my mother cooked it until it was cardboard and I never ate it. I’m a full on Chicken Lover.
    But. . . If there’s spicy peppers ‘n’ Spices the steak is swimming in, I’d probably reconsider!! (I’m a Spicy Girl)
    Have a Great Weekend!
