Bowl o' red

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 tablespoons Lard; bacon drippins, or butter
1 large Onion; coarsely chopped
3 pounds Lean beef; cut in 1/2 cubes
3 \N Medium-size garlic cloves; finely chopped
¼ cup Hot chile; ground
¼ cup Mild chile; ground
1 tablespoon Ground cumin
3½ cup Water
1½ teaspoon Salt or to taste

Heat lard in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened. Remove from heat. Add meat, garlic, ground chiles and cumin to pot. Break up any lumps. Stir in the water and salt. Return to heat. Bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 2½ to 3 hours, stirring occasionally, until the meat is very tender and the flavors are well blended. Add more water if necessary. Taste and adjust seasonings. Have ice water on hand. Some folks add cooked red beans to this wonderful mixture, I do not! but you be the judge.
