This week’s Chili, Soup, or Stew Saturday recipe is – PRAIRIE HARVEST GREEN CHILI STEW. This one is from the Wild Idea Buffalo website (https://wildideabuffalo.com/). Just one of many delicious and healthy recipes. To make the Stew you’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo Stew Meat along with Roasted Green Chilies and your choice of cubed Pheasant, Grouse, or Chicken Breast. Again you can find this recipe or purchase the Buffalo Stew Meat all at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018!

PRAIRIE HARVEST GREEN CHILI STEW
The flavors of the prairie enhanced with roasted green chilies of the Southwest make for a great pot of stew. Roasted chilies are one of the best smells on the planet, so when available, I like to roast my own in the fall. If you have access to fresh and would like to roast your own, increase your green chili weight to about 4.5 pounds, and about 1.5 pounds for the red peppers. Roast chilies and peppers over a hot grill until blistered. Place in paper bag and allow to cool. Remove skin, scrape insides clean, and follow recipe below. (Makes 8 hearty entree portions, as seconds will be requested.)

Ingredients:
2 – pounds Stew Meat
1 – pound pheasant, grouse or chicken breast, cut into cubes
2 – tablespoons butter
2 – tablespoons olive oil
1 – onion, diced
2 – tablespoons garlic, chopped
2 – tablespoons cumin
2 – tablespoons chili powder
2 – tablespoons coriander
1 – teaspoon cayenne
2 – teaspoons salt
1 – tablespoon black pepper
3 – pounds *Hatch frozen or canned, roasted & peeled green chilies, diced or flash processed
1 – 15.5 ounce jar roasted red bell peppers, diced or flash processed
2 – quarts organic chicken or vegetable stock
¼ – cup arrow root
or corn starch
½ – cup water
2 – 10 ounce cans Rotel diced tomatoes, with lime juice and cilantro
1/3 – cup cilantro chopped
garnish options – sour cream and additional cilantro

Preparation:
1) Rinse stew meat in colander and pat dry with a paper towel.
2) In heavy stew pot, over medium high heat, heat butter and oil.
3) Add buffalo, fowl, onions and seasonings, stirring occasionally until meat is browned & onions are tender.
4) Add roasted green chilies and peppers to stew pot and stir to incorporate.
5) Add stock and bring to a boil.
6) Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for half an hour or until meat is tender.
7) Uncover and continue to simmer for an additional half hour.
8) Mix arrowroot and water together. Increase heat and bring to a boil, slowly whisking in arrowroot mixture.
9) Stir in diced tomatoes and cilantro.
10) Ladle stew in bowls and garnish as desired. Serve with grilled cheese Quesadillas.

*Hatch Green Chilies, are the best, so if available choose those. If using canned or frozen Hatch chilies, I use about 2.5 pounds of the mild chilies and a half pound of the hot. This gives the stew just the right amount of spiciness for our palate, adjust to your own.

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s It’s Chili, Soup, or Stew Saturday is a recipe from the Wild Idea Buffalo website (https://wildideabuffalo.com/), TEXAS RED CHILI. Made using Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast, mild and medium hot chilies, onions, garlic, spices, and to heat up a bit more cayenne pepper. You can purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast and find this recipe back at the Wild Idea Buffalo website, be sure to check the site out for more recipes Wild Idea specials! Just love the Fall Season, it elevates all the Chili, Soup, or Stew recipes to a different flavor level! Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018!

TEXAS RED CHILI
For all of you non-bean chili lovers, this recipe is for you! In addition to the instructions below, I would gather and prep all of the ingredients before starting the process, as I found I needed to stir frequently. To avoid getting the chili to hot, I used a combination of mild and medium hot chilies. You can adjust the heat to your liking with cayenne pepper. I stayed true to the San Antonio recipe, using lots of onions, garlic, spices, and Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast. The preparation was easy and I have to say the end result was pretty darn good! I hope you enjoy it too. *A personal note on my introduction to Texas style chili can be found below recipe.

Ingredients:

1 – 3 lb. Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast, rinsed, patted dry and cut into 1/4” pieces

4 – tablespoons olive oil

4– tablespoons butter

1/3 – cup masa/corn flour
2 – tablespoons Mexican oregano

2 – tablespoons cumin

2 – tablespoons Mexican chili powder

1 – tablespoon salt

1 – teaspoon black pepper

3 – Texas sweet onions, about 7 cups

6 – garlic cloves, diced, about 3 tablespoons

2 – cups organic beef broth

2 – cups water

4 – dried Ancho chilies, stems removed, seeded and coarse chopped

6 – dried medium red chilies, stems removed, seeded and coarse chopped

1 – fresh Serrano chili, stem removed, seeded and finely chopped

1 – tablespoon brown sugar
¼ – cup fresh squeezed lime juice

*optional ½ – teaspoon cayenne pepper

Preparation:
1 – Prep ingredients. Spread meat out onto a large baking sheet and sprinkle with the corn flour.

2 – In a large cast iron or heavy pot, over medium high heat, heat pan and add 2 tablespoons each of the butter and olive oil.

3 – Add half of the floured meat to the pan and allow to brown, stirring occasionally, scraping the bottom up to keep browning even. Remove browned meat from pan with a spoon and place on a plate. Repeat this step with the remaining butter, olive oil and meat.

4 – Add the first browned meat back to the pot, along with the seasonings, stirring to incorporate.

5 – Add chopped onions and garlic, again stirring occasionally, scraping up the bottom. Allow the onions and garlic to cook for about 7 minutes.

6 – Add the broth and water to the pot, stirring again as above.

7 – Reduce heat to simmer and cover the pot.

8 – Place all of the diced chilies in a food processor (small ones work best) and chop. After peppers are a bit more chopped, add ½ cup of the pot liquids to the processor and blend again, creating more of a paste.

9 – Add the pepper paste to the pot, stir to incorporate and cover. Allow the chili to simmer for a couple of hours, stirring as above occasionally.

10 – When the meat is tender, add the brown sugar and lime juice. Stir to incorporate, and allow to simmer a few more minutes.

11 – Taste, and adjust seasoning to your taste, adding the cayenne if more heat is needed.

*My introduction to “RED”: On a trip headed south for a little winter quail hunting, we made a stop in San Antonio, at the Pearl restaurant. Listed on the menu was a bowl of “Red”. The waiter proudly informed us that it was real authentic Texas Chili, that it was all meat with no beans, and that the chef had just perfected their recipe. We ordered a cup to share – it was delicious. I was curious about the history of this famous Texas dish, so I did a little research.

As the waiter stated, the recipes I found for Texas chili were bean-less and loaded with onions and chilies. I learned a few other interesting facts including, that the chili pepper was not native to this continent. A Spaniard named Don Juan de Onate first brought chili peppers into New Mexico in 1598. They soon after became a staple throughout the southwest. It was later on around 1723, when Canary Island transplants had settled in San Antonio that the meat dish first became known. It was a replication from their homeland, made with local peppers, onions, garlic, and spices. This became know as a bowl of “Red”. Red chili soon became a favorite of the cowboys on the trail, with the camp cook using beef or buffalo. And, according to Lyndon Baines Johnson, “Chili concocted outside of Texas is usually a weak, apologetic imitation of the real thing.” I’m not so sure about that….
