  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1 poblano chile, roasted, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup chili powder

  1. Heat oil in large, heavy pot over medium-high heat. Season sirloin tip cubes with salt and pepper. Brown in two batches for 3 to 4 minutes per batch; set beef cubes aside once browned.
  2. Add onions, garlic and peppers to pot. Cook 3 to 5 minutes over medium heat. Return beef cubes to pot and stir in cumin, oregano, chili powder, paprika and thyme. Cook 2 to 3 minutes. Add beer and scrape bottom of pot clean; bring to a boil and allow foam to subside, about 1 minute.
  3. Add tomatoes and tomato paste; stir well and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer for 2 hours stirring occasionally.
  4. Add beans and green chilies; cook an additional hour. Season to taste with salt and pepper if desired.
  5. Serve Beer Chili with your choice of toppings. Cornbread is also an excellent accompaniment.
