Fred's Texas Red Chili

    6 lbs. lean beef, coarsely cubed
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    1 cup chile powder
    2 Tbs. ground cumin
    2 Tbs. ground Mexican oregano
    2 Tbs. salt
    1 to 2 Tbs. cayenne pepper
    4 garlic cloves, minced
    2 cups strong black coffee
    2 qts. beef stock or canned beef broth
    1/2 cup masa harina
    1/2 cup cold water

    Brown meat in vegetable oil in a Dutch oven (this makes a lot of
    chile, so you may have to brown the meat in batches). Mix all the
    spices together and add to meat, coating it well. Add the garlic.
    Pour in the coffee and allow it to simmer for about 15 minutes.

    Then add the beef broth and simmer for 90 minutes.

    Before serving, mix the masa harina and cold water and add to the
    chile. Heat for a few more minutes, then serve.

    Traditionally served with chopped sweet onions sprinkled over the chile.

    Makes 4 quarts
