Chunks of tender beef, tomatoes, spices, and jalapeno come together beautifully in this Instant Pot No Bean Beef Chili. Hearty and full of flavor you will not miss the beans in this chili at all.
We have been busy around here lately. School, sports, work, etc. and everything in between so why not add even more to our plate? Enter a new addition to the family.
So for this Mitten Movie Night instead of recommending a movie, I want to introduce you to Titan.
We have been in discussions about getting a puppy for some time now but once we saw his little face, we knew we didn’t want to wait any longer.
Titan was one of a litter that my husband found through Paws Of Hope in Stevensville, MI. They were so great to work with and I would highly recommend them if you are in the area and interested in adding a new member of your family.
What beer goes well with Instant Pot No Bean Beef Chili?
The beer: Spaten Oktoberfest.
Yes, I know it’s no longer October but this beer is something I purchased extra of in October because it’s great to use in recipes and a light drinkable beer to have on hand for guests who don’t particularly like IPA’s.
I chose to make a beanless chili recipe because I wanted a chili recipe that would also double as a great way to use up a bag of tortilla chips that had been hanging around my cupboard.
Let’s start by talking about the ideal meat to use in the Instant Pot. I picked up this 2-pound eye of round roast from the store. With the marbling on it, I just knew it would be great. Just like when we smoke meat I’ve noticed that the more fat content meat has in it, the more tender it gets.
How to make Instant Pot No Bean Beef Chili:
Prepare the ingredients that will go into the Instant Pot. Cube the meat, chop the onion and garlic, and handle with care when seeding and chopping the jalapeno.
Should you add jalapeno to your chili?
Set the Instant Pot to saute and add 1 Tbs olive oil to the bottom. Add the cubed roast to the pot and brown on both sides using tongs to turn the meat, around 2 minutes each side.
Turn the Instant Pot off. To the browned beef add the canned tomatoes, tomato paste, onion, garlic, jalapeno, sugar, flour, and spices.
Finally, add the bottle of beer and stir everything together one more time.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot until you hear the ‘good to go’ dings. Make sure the lid valve is pointing at ‘sealing’. Set the Instant Pot to the ‘Meat/Stew’ setting and set the timer for 45 minutes.
Once the 45 minutes are up, let the pressure come down naturally for 10 minutes. Turn the valve to venting to release any further steam then open the lid.
The Instant Pot spends around 10 minutes building up the pressure and then another 10 minutes to bring the pressure down before taking the lid off. Make sure to factor this additional time for serving this instant pot chili.
I served this beanless chili with tortilla chips, sharp cheddar cheese, white onion, and sour cream. These toppings helped to cool down the jalapeno and add even more flavor.
And here you are…..
