I am pretty sure every midwestern man is a meat and potatoes lover. Chad grew up in Iowa with a love of hearty meals. You know those stick to your ribs kind of dinners that after you eat leave you feeling completely satisfied.
As fall is upon us I have been working on some chili recipes and although I may be perfectly content with my Italian Chili or Hearty Vegetarian Chili, Chad is not! Naturally, I set out to make him the most satisfying chili that I could think of.
With flavor profiles dancing in my head I imagined myself cooking in an old farmhouse in Iowa with Chad (my rugged cowboy) out working the land. I would spend the entire day preparing a chili so satisfying that he would sigh with utter delight after devouring several bowls.
Well, truth be told Chad is more of a rocker than a cowboy, but none the less after devouring multiple bowls of my Whiskey Jack’s Down Home Steak Chili he did sigh with utter contentment and I grinned from ear to ear. Unlike my daydreaming self, I don’t have all day to cook. This baby was ready in just 30 minutes!
A bowl full of smoky, spicy chili beans is joined with the flavors of seared steak and whiskey to create the ultimate steak chili!
