Cincinnati Skyline Chili



Ok ok. I've been horrible at blogging lately and I just started this blog two weeks ago! I'll either forget to post the recipe entirely or I will post the recipe and forget to take a picture of the dish. Sad, I know! Anyway, here is my take on famous Cincinnati chili. I've changed the amount of seasonings a little to more of my liking. I use very little cinnamon and allspice since this tends to be too overwhelming for my taste as well as my husbands.

Cincinnati Skyline Chili
Ingredients
1 lb of ground sirloin or ground chuck
1 onion diced
1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
2 cups beef stock ( you can always had more or less depending on how you like the consistency of your chili)
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp cinnamon ( i used 1/4 tsp)
1/4 teaspoon allspice (I literally used a pinch)
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons minced garlic (I used crushed)

Brown ground sirloin and onion in pan. Drain grease and then add two cups beef stock. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer for 2 hours. At this point, I add the chili to my crockpot and then let it simmer on low for 6-7 hours stirring occasionally. Serve over hot spaghetti noodles and then top with finely shredded cheddar cheese. (onion, beans and sourcream are optional)
Enjoy!
