  • 1 tablespoon cumin seeds, ground in a mortar and pestie
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chile flakes
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds, geound in a mortar and pestie
Okra Chili:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 (12-ounce) bottle dark beer, divided
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh okra, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • 1 to 2 canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups low-sodium beef stock
  • 1 (14-ounce) can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 bunch fresh cilantro, stems chopped and leaves picked
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

For the spice mix: In a small bowl, mix to combine the ground cumin seeds, garlic powder, paprika, chile flakes, and ground coriander seeds. 

For the chili: Heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil in a cast-iron pan over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef to the pan and cook, stirring frequently, until the moisture has evaporated, and the beef is browned. Drain the beef of any fat that has rendered, and deglaze the pan with half of the beer. 

In a separate pot, add the remaining tablespoon vegetable oil, and add the onion, garlic, peppers, and okra, and saute over medium-high heat. Sprinkle over the chili spice mix, and the chipotle pepper, stirring to combine. Deglaze the pot with the remaining beer, and add the browned beef. 

Add the diced tomatoes, and stock, and then bring everything to a boil. Place the lid over the pot, and reduce the heat to a simmer. After 1 hour, add in the kidney beans, and cilantro stems. Keep cooking for another 30 minutes over low heat. 

Adjust the chili's seasonings with salt, and black pepper, to taste. Switch off the heat and garnish with the cilantro leaves.
