1 onion, sliced

1 red pepper, deseeded and thickly sliced

small bunch fresh coriander, stalks finely chopped

1 tbsp sunflower oil

500g/1lb 2oz beef brisket, trimmed of excess fat and cut into matchbox-size pieces

salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 fat garlic cloves, crushed

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground coriander

2 tsp hot chilli powder

1 tsp dried oregano

2 tbsp tomato purée

400g/14oz can chopped tomatoes

300ml/½ pint hot beef stock

2 x 400g/14oz can red kidney beans in water, rinsed and drained

1 cube good quality dark chocolate, minimum 70% cocoa solids


1. Place the onion, red pepper and coriander stalks into a slow cooker. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan, season the beef with salt and freshly ground black pepper, then fry in two batches until golden-brown, transferring to the slow cooker when ready.

2. Add the garlic, spices and oregano to the pan juices and fry for one minute until fragrant. Stir in the tomato purée, tomatoes and stock then bring to a boil. Pour the hot sauce over the meat, then cover with a lid and cook on low for seven hours. Stir in the beans, then cook for an hour more until the meat is very tender.

3. Break the chocolate into the sauce, let it melt, then stir it in. Season the sauce to your taste, then scatter with the coriander leaves and serve.

This recipe is intriguing me. I’ve never heard of chocolate chili and I LOVE dark chocolate. The darker the better!

How much chocolate is one cube? I buy it in flat bars decided I to squares that break apart. Is there an ounce measurement for a cube?

ETA: Have you used a premium quality of ground beef instead of the brisket?
