Giles is doing that the right way. Most commercial “Greek” yogurts I’ve seen use pectin or other thickeners versus concentrating it down.

This is an authentic Texas style chili con carne for the dropping temperatures. I tried a slightly different technique this time and liked it overall. My only quibble is I couldn’t find masa at the store and think that would have helped the gravy.

You can use potato starch or corn starch to thicken the gravy. They're very neutral in flavor.

missed the latest in this thread. Giles yoghurt is looking perfect, something I should be doing at home too. and it is getting to be chili season, that one looks great @mclaincausey. A little tomato paste would have done the trick, but the flavor of masa is magical in chili.

we made a quick pasta in the 14" All clad.

Fresh English peas, Italian Sausage, garlic and preserved lemon braised down in stock.

Yeah @jordanscollected I may sound like one of those chili zealots about limiting ingredients where I can to beef, chili, and spices, but I do avoid tomato products in this recipe because for me I view chili con carne as a challenge to see how much flavor I can get out of the chiles, and I should be able to get the tang that overlaps with tomato products out of the peppers.

I eventually got my masa by adding a quality store-bought tamale  :D

Next up will be, in an unknown order, Pueblo chile pork stew and pork carne adobada, both in as close to a northern New Mexican style as I can muster.

Think it, be it.

@mclaincausey Man, that looks amazing.  Can you send me the recipe?  I do all of the cooking in my house and I am tired of a lot of my cold weather rotation.

Yeah @Soleamp it is based on https://www.seriouseats.com/pressure-cooker-chile-con-carne-texas-red-chili-recipe

I always tinker with recipes but didn't stray too far from it. I serve with cotija, sharp cheddar, cilantro, scallion, and sliced jalapeno or serrano.
Think it, be it.

Smoked some beef ribs yesterday. 6 hours on the kamado joe.

Those look mouth wateringly (Probably not a word) good.

NP @Soleamp and this was my first try at the pressure cooker variant--the original that I have based past successes on is here: https://www.seriouseats.com/real-texas-chili-con-carne

When I first dipped my toe into chili con carne I used this: http://www.recipecircus.com/recipes/Buny/MainDish-Chili/Roger_Foltz39s_Chili.html

These days I try to resist packaged ingredients and MSG (e.g. chili powders unless I make them myself, Sazon Goya--and no, I am not eliminating MSG because I think it's a health hazard, I just will use a little fish sauce instead for umami), so I no longer use those kinds of recipes, but that one did win an award in 2004.
Think it, be it.
