In my latest box of goodies received from Stubb’s I was excited to see some of their new cooking sauces, including the one I used for this excellent chili. This was really, really good, and the kit comes with a package of sauce and a separate spice rub packet, which allows you to adapt the heat to your own preferred level. I made this in the slow cooker and the flavor was excellent the first night, but even better after it had a couple of days to develop. We enjoyed it with some gluten free sweet potato crackers and a sprinkle of shredded sharp cheddar.
This is a perfect dish for a pot luck or for tailgating, and it takes very little time to put together. I used more meat than called for in the package instructions because I wanted a chunky, thick stew consistency. This is how you will see the sauce packet in your store:
The sauce and spice mix are gluten free and contain real-food ingredients only, and the flavor is outstanding. I used about 2/3 of the spice packet mix and the result was spicy but with just enough heat for our tastes. If you like it mild, use about a fourth of the spice packet. Here’s how I put my chili together:
- 2-3 pounds beef brisket
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil or olive oil
- Stubb's Chili Fixin's, sauce and spice packet
- red wine (or water)
- Cut the brisket into bite-sized cubes. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a large skillet and brown the brisket cubes in batches, being careful not to crowd them. As each batch browns, transfer them to the slow cooker. Replenish oil as needed while browning the meat.
- Pour the chili sauce packet over the browned meat in the slow cooker, and add in as much of the spice packet as desired (1/4 packet for mild, or more to preference). Pour in a cup of red wine or water. Cover and set the slow cooker on high and cook for 5-6 hours, or until the meat is very tender.
The other cooking sauces are Bar-B-Q Slider, Smokehouse Bourbon, and Hatch Chile. I have a packet of the Smokehouse Bourbon that I will be trying next.
