Here is a great recipe where I smoke a Tri Tip and use it in my homemade Chili.
1 2-3 pound Tri Tip
1 pound ground Pork
2 large Onions
2 Bell Peppers
1 Jalapeno Peppers (diced and deseeded)
6 Cloves Garlic
4 Tablespoons Chili Powder
4 teaspoons ground Cumin
3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1 can Tomato Paste (6 ounces)
1 can Green Chili Peppers (4-6 ounces)
1 bottle or can of Beer (preferably Stout or Porter)
4 cans of Diced Tomatoes (14.5 ounces)
2 cans of Chili Beans 2 cans of Beans (Pinto or Kidney)
2 Beef Bouillon Cubes
2 Teaspoons Oregano
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Chili Pepper Flakes or Hot Sauce of your choice (If Preferred)
Smoke Tri Tip at 225-250 degrees for 1-2 hours, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 135 degrees. Allow to cool and cut into cubes.
In a large frying pan over medium high heat, cook Ground Pork and the chopped Bell Peppers and Onions. Cook for about 7 to 8 minutes or until the veggies cook down and start to develop some color.
Transfer mixture to the Slow Cooker. Add the remaining ingredients. Stir well and cook on low for 7-8 hours, or high for 4-5 hours. Stir and season with salt, pepper to taste.
Top with Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Sour Cream. Enjoy!
