Recipe Name: Authentic Cowboy Chili Submitted by: Administrator
Source: Source Description:

Base: Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 Pound(s) Beef, chopped sirloin is
what cowhands would have
1 Onion
1 Clove garlic
3 8 oz tomato sauce
2 Tablespoon(s) Gebhardt Chili Powder
2 Tablespoon(s) Ground cumin
1 Teaspoon(s) Salt
The ONLY "Authentic" recipe is on the back side of "Gebhardt" Chili
Powder. Distributed by & copyright of Hunt-Wesson Inc., P.O.B. 4800,
Fullerton, CA 92634. This is the ORIGINAL Chili Powder recipe from the
early 1800's, as used by the cowhands. The recipe is simple, as on the
trail, and tastes as good as any I've ever had, and I am a
commonsouer........ Have many books of recipes, tried many, etc. This
is still the best & easiest AUTHENTIC recipe & the ONLY powder worth
using. The World Chili Organization has a web site (can't remember the
URL right now, but a search engine will find it quickly). They have
all of the recent championship recipes posted, however, nobody says
they are AUTHENTIC. Brown beef with onion & garlic. Drain fat. Add
remaining ingredients and simmer 20 minutes. (3 or 4 hours is not too
long, the longer you simmer the better, however, it smells so good,
you can't wait any longer) Stir occasionally. Gebhardts is the
ORIGINAL recipe used by the Texas cowhands. Others have tried to
duplicate it, to no avail. You can taste the difference. Note: there
are NO beans & NO HOT peppers added. If it's authentic you want - this
it IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It can be served with chopped onions, cheddar
cheese, crackers, tostados, bread, etc. Just think, what would have
been available on a cattle drive in the middle of the plains. Posted
