Crockpot Steak Chili

My family loves chili especially on a cold winter day.  We have 5 people in our family.  This recipe makes about 7-8 full bowls of chili.
Crockpot Steak Chili
  • 3-4 lbs of sirlon steak, trimmed
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 large carrots or 3/4 bag of matchstick carrots
  • 3/4 cup green pepper, seeded and diced
  • 4 cups canned tomatoes
  • 2 cans of beans ( I use 1 can pinto beans and one can of kidney beans)
  • 2 cans of green enchilada sauce( I use mild because the kids don't like it too spicy)
  • 2 teaspoons of chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  1. Trim your steak, removing the fat.  Heat 4 tablespoons of olive oil and add steak to a pan, browning the steak.
  2. Dice the onions, carrots, and green pepper.  I save myself a little time and buy a bag of the matchstick carrots.
  3. Remove the steak with a slotted spoon leaving any juices in the pan.
  4. Add the onions, green pepper, and carrots to the juices left in the pan and sauté until vegetables are tender.
  5. Now it's time to dump everything in the crockpot and forget about it:)  Add the steak, tender vegetables, whole canned tomatoes, beans, enchilada sauce, chili powder, salt, cumin, garlic powder, pepper, paprika, and sugar to the crockpot.
  6. Cook for 6-8 hours.  I usually serve the chili with cornbread or rice.
