It took me a while to think of a cuter name for Beef & Beer Chili. I ended up with just B&B Chili because there’s really no sexy way to name this recipe (if you can think of one let me know lol).
Adding beer to your chili gives it such a unique and delicious flavor. If you’ve never tried it before, you might be hesitant but TRUST ME. You will never go back to regular chili again!
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 lb sirloin tips
- 1 white onion chopped
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1 bell pepper chopped
- 1 20 oz can crushed tomatoes
- 1 10 oz can fire roasted tomatoes with green chilies
- 1 15 oz can kidney beans drained & rinsed
- 1 15 oz can black beans drained & rinsed
- 1 6 oz can tomato paste
- 2 tbsp chili powder
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tbsp cumin
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
- 1 11.2 oz can beer I used Stella
- 1/2 cup water or beef broth optional, see notes
- olive oil
- sour cream
- tortilla chips
- shredded cheese
- green onion
Add a drizzle of oil to your InstantPot on saute setting. Add your onions and saute until translucent.
Add in your ground beef & sirloin tips to brown.
Add in the rest of the ingredients and cook on high for 20 minutes. Use either the quick or natural release.
Let cool for about 10 minutes then serve!
If you like really thick chili, skip the water or broth. I like to add a little at the end to reach my desired consistency!
You can use just ground beef if you want to skip the sirloin tips.
For a crockpot, saute the onion and beef then add to the crockpot. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours. For a regular pot, cover and simmer on low for at least 1 hour.
