The Best Venison Chili Recipe

This one comes from our good friend, Cody Marshall, at Wayfinder’s Galley. If you like chili, this one’s hard to beat –thus the name, The Best Venison Chili Recipe. With double meat and just the right amount of spice, this is the one you’ve been looking for!

Prep time: 5 MINUTES

Cook time: 45 MINUTES

Total time: 50 MINUTES


1 lb. ground venison

1 lb sirloin steak

1 onion

1 poblano pepper

2 tbsp fire roasted green chile peppers

1 can fire roasted tomatoes

1 can dark kidney beans

1 can light kidney beans

2 tbsp tomato paste

1 packet chili seasoning

2 cups beef broth

Salt & Pepper to taste


Heat a Dutch oven (or pot) over medium/medium-high heat. Brown the ground beef first, using a small portion of the chili seasoning to add some flavor to the meat. Salt and pepper the steak to taste and thinly slice. Once the meat is partially browned (about 3/4) you can add the steak (Tip: I highly recommend giving the steaks a quick sear in a cast iron or on a grill before slicing to increase flavor) Cook for approximately 5 min, or until the ground beef is thoroughly cooked.

Chop the onion and pepper. Mix in the onion, poblano, and chile peppers. Then dump the tomatoes, beans, broth, and remainder of chili seasoning and stir well. Bring to a boil.

Add the tomato paste and stir well, evenly distributing the paste throughout. Reduce heat and cover. Allow to simmer for at least 30 min.
