Binging with Babish: Kevin's Famous Chili from The Office

  • Published on Jan 18, 2017
  • Kevin Malone is the tragically comic overweight buffoon (and World Series of Poker champion?) we all know and love from The Office. When he's not shotgunning cookie jars full of M&M's, Kevin sometimes treats his coworkers to the Malone family's mainstay: chili. Let's follow along and try very hard not to spill any.
    Music: "I Like Van Halen Because My Sister Says They Are Cool" - El Ten Eleven
    Binging With Babish Website:
    Basics With Babish Website:

    -3oz ancho chiles, seeded and torn into 1" pieces
    -1oz cascabel chiles, seeded and torn into 1" pieces
    -1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
    -3 tbsp corn flour
    -1 tbsp freshly-ground cumin
    -1 tbsp dried oregano
    -32oz carton of chicken stock, divided
    -2 jalapeños, minced
    -1/2 habanero, seeded and minced
    -6 roma tomatoes, cored and chopped
    -2 tbsp olive oil, divided
    -3 lbs chuck steak, trimmed of fat/gristle, cut into cubes and chopped
    -1 large onion, diced
    -4 cloves garlic, pressed
    -12oz light lager
    -6oz red kidney beans, soaked until tender
    -2 tbsp brown sugar
    In a large sauté pan, heat dried chile pieces over medium-low heat until toasted and *barely* smoking - do not allow to smoke. Once toasted, place in the bowl of a food processor. Process for 2-3 minutes, until peppers are reduced to a fine powder. Add cocoa, corn flour, cumin, and oregano - pulse to combine. While machine runs, add 3/4 cup of chicken stock, until a paste is formed. Scrape into a bowl and set aside.
    Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large pot until near-smoking. In batches, brown beef on all sides, being careful not to over-crowd the pot. Once all beef has browned, and fond has formed on the bottom of the pot, add remaining oil, and sauté onions and peppers until sweating. Deglaze with beer, and scrape the bottom of the pot. Add remaining ingredients, stir well, and place in a 300F oven, lid slightly ajar. Stir occasionally to prevent scorching, and braise for 2-3 hours, until beef is tender. Season with salt and pepper, and serve with cheese and cornbread.

    One time when my step mom was being a bitch and saying I couldn’t eat these peppers because they were too hot, turns out they were habanero peppers😷and I ate one and my mouth fucking burned for 3 hours

  • Vensey Ness

    There was a brief phase where I was really into spice, but my family had never been big on spice, so I was the only one who ever use the peppers. One day we made tacos, and I had mine in the oven with habaneros in the meat. It was my first time have a habanero so I only had a little. To my surprise, when I pulled them out, not only were my tacos extraordinairially spicy, but the entire dish was so spicy that even the tacos that didn't have peppers on them were inedible to the rest of my family. That night still haunts us to this day.

    I couldn’t find Cascabel chili’s, so I took out the fresh peppers and added in 2 ounces of chipotle peppers and an extra tbs of cocoa . It’s still amazing. Nearly too spicy for me, but I’m a wimp.

    IF you go to a specialty butcher you can usually ask for chili style ground meat and they use a grinder cap to get a courser style ground meat like you described.
