Heart Healthy Texas Chili Recipe
Season the flank steak with 1/8 teaspoon of the salt and black pepper to taste; toss with flour. Set aside.
In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté for about 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add the flank steak and cook for 6 minutes, or until the meat is no longer pink.
Add the chili powder, cumin, paprika, cocoa, cinnamon and oregano and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the tomato paste and molasses; cook for 3 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes, beef stock, chipotle peppers, Worcestershire sauce and the remaining 1/8 tsp salt. Bring the mixture to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.
Serve the chili with the sour cream (if using), scallions, radishes and lime wedges.
