Serve up a hearty bowl of chili made from assorted American Wagyu steak cuts. Chili is traditionally made with a flavorful, but tough cut like bottom round and is slow cooked all day to make it tender. Since we're starting with high quality pieces, the cook time is greatly reduced and the eating experience is off the charts. This is an all beef recipe. If you must have beans, feel free to add them.

This recipe has a nice level of spice, so it's perfect for on a cold winter day with glowing embers in the fireplace or while you're watching the big game.
