Gene's Chili

Posted by Donna:

I previously posted a chili recipe back in June. I debated on whether or not to post this one because this is a family recipe. Family recipes are special, and sometimes hard to share. I've mentioned before that my parents were in the grocery store business. Daddy would sell his chili and barbecue out of the store. and quite often, people would pay him to make it for them. He told me he sent some to Australia one time. After making this last week, I finally decided to share his recipe.

4 lbs. ground beef (chili plate)

4 oz. chili powder

1 T. cumin powder

1 whole onion, chopped ( white or yellow)

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Put the meat, chili powder, cumin, onion, and garlic powder in a large pan. Cook on simmer for approximately 1-1/2 hours. Add salt when the chili is almost done--about an hour into the simmering. This recipe makes about four quarts. It's great to freeze and bring out on a cold day.

I'm going to assume that others will ask this: What's a chili plate?

This is good! I was fortunate to stop by Mom and Dad's last week just in time to have a bowl of it! :) Lori

A chili plate is a rectangular wrapped "plate" or block of chili meat. If they don't have the pre-wrapped chili plate, or block of chili meat, then they have to grind some into chili meat for you. They usually use ground chuck for this.
