I want to thank the fellow who put the recipe out from the America’s Test Kitchen cookbook, Inside America’s Test Kitchen (Thanx to Clay Irving @ panix.com)
I was very curious when I found ATK had a recipe for Chili. I watch the PBS show they have under the name of America’s Test Kitchen. I have only tried one recipe in the past, a chocolate chip cookie recipe for a crispy, harder cookie. It wound up not working out for me. But I have great hopes for this Chili recipe. Now the next hard step was discovering that neither my wife nor I own a non-reactive cast iron Dutch Oven. That’s right we were completely passed by the Le Creuset revolution (Vive la revolution). I had seen this item in various forms on other cooking shows but the lesson never sank in. Lidia’s Kitchen for example used the Dutch Oven for her osso bucco. It makes total sense. But trying to find a store that carries the 3.5 quart Le Creuset French Oven is almost impossible. But we may have a specialty store near our house that will have it in stock.
