Narsai David Recipe: Stan Schwartz’s Cincinnati Chili

(KCBS) – KCBS Food and Wine Editor Narsai David received this chili recipe from his friend Stan Schwartz.

2 lb Ground Beef
4-5 cups Chopped Onion
4 Cloves Garlic, chopped
2 TBS Chili Powder
2 tsp Cinnamon Powder
1/2 tsp Cayenne or more to taste
2 TBS Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
6 Bay Leaves
6 oz Can Tomato paste
4 cups Water
1 TBS Worcestershire Sauce
2 TBS Vinegar

In a frying pan that has a cover, break up and brown the meat very well over high heat. The meat should be getting crisp to develop the most caramelized flavor. Then add onions and garlic and sauté until starting to brown. Add spices and stir-fry for a couple minutes. Add tomato paste and remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and then cover and simmer for about one hour, or until everything is tender.

This is traditionally served over spaghetti with your choice of raw onion, cheddar cheese and/or kidney beans on the side.
