1 tablespoon vegetable oil
6 slices of bacon, chopped
2 pound coarsely ground sirloin (yes sirloin get a 2 lb roast and have the butcher grind it!)
3 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 tablespoon cumin
Freshly ground black pepper
½ medium onion, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
2-3 15-ounce can pinto beans, drained and rinsed (I add one Big can and one 15 oz can)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire
8-12 oz Beef Broth (pour un till it just covers bean/meat)
1 cup chili sauce (I use Heinz Chili Sauce)
Salt to taste
Yields: 8-10 servings big bowls
Preheat a heavy bottomed pot over medium heat with vegetable oil and brown the bacon until crisp. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, leaving the fat in the pot.
Add the sirloin to bacon drippings in the pan, using the back of a wooden spoon to break it up while it browns. Season with the chili powder, cumin and ground black pepper.
Add the onion and garlic, and cook until softened, about 7-8 minutes. Add the beans, brown sugar, Worcestershire and Beef Broth, and cook 5 minutes. Add the chili sauce and season with salt to taste.
A few minutes before serving, add bacon back to the pot and stir to combine.
