First, add some fat and coat the bottom of a large, thick pot with extra virgin olive oil. If using Bacon, now is the time to add the Drippings.
Second, add some flavor with: 1 TBSP Joe’s Chili Power, bay leaves, onions and garlic to your pot. Once garlic begins to bubble, begin to stir.
Next, add the Brisket after sautéing onions and garlic for 2 minutes.
Continue Cooking, sautéing for another 5-7 minutes stirring regularly. Make sure brisket is browned if using raw meat.
After your meat is cooked, add Tomatoes and Chili Paste. I also add about one cup of water now by rinsing the cans and getting all of the tomato bits into the Chili.
Once you have added tomatoes, chile paste and water, add 2 TBSP Joe’s Chili Powder and one bottle/can of Beer.
Stir in the beer and Chili Power, then cover and bring to simmer over Medium Heat.
Once the Chili is simmering, stir making sure to scrape the bottom. Return to simmer and reduce heat. Reduce heat to Medium Low or Simmer Setting.
Cook for one hour with no lid, stirring every 10-15 minutes.
After one hour, add drained and rinsed beans.
Continue to simmer for 2 more hours, stirring every 10-15 minutes.
After 3 hours, the brisket should be falling apart into the Chili. Now your chili should be turning into an almost stew like texture. You can continue simmering for another hour to further break down the meat, or eat now!
