In watching a food show, I saw a ground beef chile sauce that was totally unlike anything I had ever heard of before. I made up this recipe from watching what they did - so I apologize if am not doing the "real" recipe justice, but it is pretty fun to make and can be converted into many different dishes. The real version I think is called cincinnati chili, but mine is a crazy california concoction.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1T chile powder
  • 4 T roasted garlic
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 T kosher salt
  • canola oil
  • 2 cans tomato sauce
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1t dried basil
  • 3 T apple cider vinegar


  • Chop and dice yellow onion, cooking with canola oil and salt, carmelize well.
  • Add roasted garlic and mix well with onions.
  • Add rest of ingredients except for beef, mix well.
  • Add beef and with hands (I wear gloves for this)squish beef into wet mixture so that it is well incorporated.
  • This is not a mistake - do not brown the beef ahead of time.
  • Bring mixture to a simmer and cover, stirring occasionally.
  • Cook for about 30-45 minutes then add vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Can be served over beans, pasta, or potatoes.
