Is it Summer yet?

My husband keeps taunting me with tales of 70˚ days in Atlanta while I get excited about the mercury cresting 45˚ here in NYC! It’s a heat wave!

I want to be eating smoothies and ice cream, but until the temperature outside no longer requires a winter coat and scarf, I will be warming up with chili and soup!

Who am I kidding? I LOVE chili!

I wait {impatiently…which is the only way I wait, by the way} all Summer long for it to be socially acceptable to make chili again!

And this Rosemary Pinot Noir Steak Chili has it all!

A little bit of rosemary to remind me of Summer…

A little bit of pinot noir because wine makes everything better…

And a little bit of steak to make the Husband happy!

The very picture of a perfect bowl of chili!

This flavorful Rosemary Pinot Noir Steak Chili is a spicy, hearty chili with tender pieces of steak and a hint of pinot noir and rosemary! Not only did I deglaze the pan with a full cup of pinot noir, I added some in later just to make sure that flavor was present. It marries perfectly with the earthiness of the rosemary and a savory steak flavor.
Really, it’s heavenly.

Do you know another reason why I love chili? Because it makes me feel like cornbread is obligatory. And I love me some cornbread!

A giant steaming bowl of this Rosemary Pinot Noir Steak Chili (with cornbread, obvi) is the perfect antidote to these last lingering grey, cold days!

I feel compelled to mention that if you wouldn’t drink the wine you are using for cooking, it has no business in your dinner either. Especially when you are adding it at the end as flavoring. A good wine a few days past it’s prime is fine. {I think we should end on that little rhyme. Last one. Sorry.}

Rosemary Pinot Noir Steak Chili

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes

Yield: Serves 4

This flavorful Rosemary Pinot Noir Steak Chili is a spicy, hearty chili with tender pieces of steak and a hint of pinot noir and rosemary!

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs beef (I used shoulder), cut in bite sized cubes
  • 2 ½ tablespoons of flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 ¼ cups pinot noir; divided
  • 2, 15 oz cans kidney beans, drained
  • 28 oz can roasted, chopped tomatoes
  • 3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ancho chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Sour cream of 2% Greek Yogurt, for serving (optional)

Instructions

  1. Rinse and pat the beef dry. Mix together the flour, salt and pepper in a medium bowl; toss the beef in the flour mixture to coat.
  2. Heat a medium Dutch oven or large stock pot over medium heat until hot. Add the olive oil, just enough to coat the bottom of the pot, brown the beef on all sides; working it batches. Set aside loosely covered to keep warm.
  3. Add a little more olive oil to the pot and cook the onions and rosemary until the onions are translucent and fragrant. Pour 1 cup of the wine into the pot and stir to get up all the delicious browned bits on the bottom; cook 1 minute.
  4. Add the meat and any juices that it released, beans, tomatoes, and spices to the pot and stir to combine.
  5. Cook 1 hour over low heat, stirring occasionally.
  6. After an hour taste for salt and pepper and add the remaining ¼ cup wine.
  7. Cook until the meat is tender and the flavors have melded, about 30 minutes more.

Notes:

The cooking time will vary depending on the cut of meat you choose and the size of your pieces. Mine were about 1 cm cubes.

    You are a rhyming fool, Lindsey! You’re the next Dr. Seuss…except you can cook more than green eggs and ham. This chili looks incredible. I’m all about the steak…I’ve never added steak to chili, but now I have a serious hankerin’ for a big hot bowl of this chili. Can you make that happen? I’ll be in the city in a couple of weeks, so you have plenty of time to make another 4-5 batches of this for me. 😉

      Sometimes I can’t help myself. Just like sometimes the more ridiculous puns enter my head and then I just have share them in the hopes that one other person will find them funny! Usually that person is you!
      You ask for a lot, my friend, but I can definitely make that happen if you bring me something in return. WHERE IS THE KITCHEN SINK COOKIE RECIPE?!?!?!

    I wish it was summer! It’s going to be in the mid 70s by me today, but then back to the 40s tomorrow. This chili looks like the perfect dish to warm me up! I love the rosemary and pinot noir in here. So creative Lindsey! Sounds delicious!

    Pinot noir is my favorite wine, so you know I’ll be drinking some as I cook. 🙂 This chili looks awesome despite the spring weather we’re having — and I’d love it hot weather or not! Pinned. 🙂

    It’s still officially winter so you can shamelessly make all the chili you want. Besides, you make a delectable pot of chili, Linsey.

    Too funny – I just posted my favorite chili recipe last week and was talking about trying to squeeze in all of my favorite winter recipes before spring hits New York. My theory is that if I have enough delicious food to distract me, I’ll wake up from my food coma just in time for spring! This looks DELICIOUS!

    This. Yes. There is nothing better than a big ole’ pot of chili simmering away on the stove… and I’m so with on the cornbread. It’s a necessity with chili in my mind!! And it just broke 50 degrees, so that’s definitely warm enough to go get some ice cream now too hahahaha.

    Pinot Noir? In steak chili? With fresh rosemary? I am SO there! Girl, this recipe rocks for so many reasons and I don’t care if the temps are starting to crest near 60 degrees here. This is the perfect meaty comfort meal if there ever was one! Thanks for sharing another winning recipe with us, Linds! xo

      I haven’t, Wendy, but if I did I would add a lot of the spices towards the end of the cooking time and I might increase them a bit. I would still sear the steak before adding it to the crock pot to add depth of flavor. Good luck!

    I made this chili for an annual chili cook off amongst all of my friends. We’re up to a crowd of about 50 each year with anywhere from 10 to 15 entries. Every year it’s very tight between first, second, and third prizes. This year I won hands down with this delicious recipe! This chili has it all – it’s delicious, just spicy enough, thick like a stew, and comfort in a bowl. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe.
