  • At last, the Skyline Chili Recipe

    I know I said last week that I'd post this, but I'm only just now getting around to it. This came from TopSecretRecipes.com and attempts to follow as closely as possible the chili served at Skyline, a chain of restaurants in Ohio.

    A few notes:

    The recipe, as written, calls for cardamom. I had never had it until I tried this recipe, and I can't say I'm a fan of the spice. It tastes soapy to me. I tried reducing it to 1/2 tsp. and still didn't care for the taste. Other recipes I've seen for Cincinnati-style chili call for cinnamon, so I tried that and I like it so much better.

    It is not low in sodium. To reduce the amount of sodium, you could use low-sodium beef broth and reduce the amount of salt added to the pot.

    It freezes well. We make multiple batches and freeze them in individual servings in Ziploc bags.

    Enjoy!

    Skyline Chili

    1 pound ground beef
    2 cans beef broth, 14 or 14.5 oz each
    1/2 cup water
    6 ounces tomato paste
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    4 teaspoons chili powder
    1 tablespoon white vinegar
    1 1/4 teaspoons salt
    1 teaspoon cardamom or cinnamon
    1 teaspoon nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon allspice
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne
    1/4 teaspoon coriander
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

    Brown ground beef in large sauce pan over medium heat. Do not drain. Using a potato masher, mash cooked beef into small pieces about the size of uncooked rice.

    Turn off heat and add rest of the ingredients. Whisk so paste and cornstarch are mixed in thoroughly.

    Put over medium heat and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 60 to 75 minutes or until thick.

    Serving Variations:
    3 Way: spaghetti, chili, cheddar cheese
    4 Way: add onion before cheese
    5 Way: add cooked red beans on spaghetti. Can add in chopped onions.

      That is pretty close to my secret recipe. I never brown my meat. I put the raw meat in the water, then I use an electric hand mixer to chop the meat. This also removes some of the fat, it gets caught on the mixer blades. Some people put a small amount of bakers chocolate. I never do.

      Another way to serve: hotdog bun, then hotdog, then mustard, then chili, then onion, then grated cheddar cheese. This is called a cheese coney with onions and mustard. I was raised on these...

          I got my first "taste" of Cincinnati when I worked for two summers (1988 and 1989) at King's Island Amusement Park ... Growing up, that was the place to be! Especially because of the La Rosa's Pizza and the Skyline Chili! Since then, I am happy to say that Graeter's Ice Cream, SkyLine Chili, and LaRosa's Pizza have all opened stores here in Dayton Ohio ... You cannot beat any of those places for the best of what Cincinnati offers!

            For the record, if I had been able to go to the meeting this year I was counting on you to bring me some!

              Chili happens to be a favorite of both me and my husband. I certainly will try this recipe, but I will drain the ground beef....I'm not that keen on fat.

              Thanks

                  Hi Esther,

                  I'm not keen on it myself. When I make this, I usually use ground round or ground beef that's at least 80% lean. It's good with 92% lean ground beef, as well. A bit of fat is good for the flavor.
