Hot Damn Chili Gluten-Free

The best "Hot Damn Gluten-Free Chili" recipe on Earth. It's super easy to make and mouth watering delicious.


1 ½ - 2 lbs London Broil
1 Pkg. Black Peppercorn  marinade mix
½ cup ea. Habanero peppers and chopped onion
29 oz. can chopped tomato in juice
8 oz jar of Chinese Garlic Chili sauce
1 bottle of Mr & Mrs. T’s Bold and Spicy Bloody Mary mix
1 tube Wasabi (5-6 oz.)
1 can of Kidney beans: drained
Hot sauce, Onion powder, Garlic powder, chili powder and cumin to taste (There is no such thing as too much).


4-5 days in advance make the marinade - substituting hot sauce for the vinegar - and freeze the meat in the mix.

The night (or that morning) before cook off the meat, sauté the peppers and onion in olive oil till the onions are tender.  

Combine the meat, peppers and onions; add in the tomatoes and seasonings.  

Stir and add the Chili sauce and ¼ the Bloody Mary mix and the Wasabi.  

Stir till well blended.  

Simmer for at least 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, adding more Bloody Mary mix if the sauce gets too thick.

If doing this the night before remove from heat and cool, then refrigerate overnight 

An hour before serving warm up the chili adding more Mr. & Mrs. T’s if needed and the beans.  

Heat at least one hour over low heat stirring every five minutes.

A little bacon, garlic, and onion turns an inexpensive piece of meat into a crock pot and at the end of the day you will have a crowd pleaser.


1 (5-pound) boneless beef chuck roast, trimmed and cut into 1-inch chunks
Sea Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 ounces bacon (about 4 slices), minced
3 onions, minced
4 carrots, peeled and slice into 1/2-inch chunks
¼ cup tomato paste

2 cups frozen pearl onions
½ cup water
3 tablespoons salted butter
2 teaspoons sugar
1 pound small Portabella mushrooms, trimmed and halved


Pat dry beef with paper towels and season with sea salt and pepper. Place half of beef in slow cooker. Heat oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Brown remaining beef well on all sides, 7 to 10 minutes; transfer to crock pot.

In skillet over medium-high heat cook bacon until crisp, about 5 minutes. Stir in onions, carrots, tomato paste, garlic, and thyme and cook until onions are softened and lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute.

Reduce to simmer, cover, and cook until onions are fully thawed and tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Uncover, bring to a boil, and cook until all liquid evaporates, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and cook until vegetables are browned and glazed, 8 to 12 minutes; transfer to crock pot.

Add remaining 1¼ cups wine to skillet and simmer until it has reduced by half, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer to crock pot. et stew settle for 5 minutes, then remove fat from surface using large spoon. Discard bay leaves. (Adjust stew consistency with additional hot broth as needed.) Season with sea salt and pepper to taste and serve.
