Steakhouse Chili

This Steakhouse Chili is honestly the best pot of chili I have made in a long time. This has steak, corn, and some BBQ sauce which just puts a nice spin on the classic pot of chili. I made it in our Instant Pot in an hour! Don’t have one? No problem, just use your slow cooker or let simmer for a few hours on the stove and you are good to go. Mike loves when I make this version of chili… he even had me make it twice in one week. So the second time, I doubled the batch and froze some 🙂

We had peppers from our garden, but you can use peppers of your choice. Our jalapenos were ridiculously hot this year, so I only needed to add one to the entire pot. So feel free to spice it up or down to your liking.

The nice thing about the Instant Pot is that you can do everything in one pot. So just set it to the Saute function, brown the meat, and add the peppers and onions.

Continue to add all of the canned ingredients along with the beer (key ingredient in every pot of chili for me). Then add the seasonings and BBQ sauce. Set Instant Pot to Soup/chili function and set to low pressure for 1 hour. Boom-done (as Mike would say). Everything is cooked perfectly and ready to eat!
