    It's a terrific *basic* chili. It's perfect for my family because everyone can customize it with other stuff. I cooked it in my Instant Pot, following the recipe, then pressure-cooked it for 15 minutes. When it was done, I thought it was still a little soupy, so I added a few Tbsp of cornmeal and then pressure-cooked it for another 15 minutes. That made it exactly right.

    This recipe is a good jumping off point. I ended up having to triple the salt (not sure why there’s so little salt in the recipe for two pounds of meat plus like three cups of liquid!). Next time I’ll probably add a chopped jalapeño with the onion and some Worcestershire sauce for some more depth.

    Awesome!! I added red pepper flakes and a bit more chil powder along w/ green and yellow bell peppers.Better when seasoning the meat before hand

    it was really good, I add some chili fixins to mine minus the wine. i also add deer meat alone with the ground beef.
