Crock Pot Chili With Leftover Prime Rib Recipe

Updated on December 18, 2016

Crockpot Chili with Prime Rib

I usually make my crockpot chili purely vegetarian because I think sometimes it is just wise to eat a few meatless meals - and it helps to know how to cook vegetarian dishes if you happen to have family or friends who don't eat meat! This recipe though for Crockpot Chili with Prime Rib is a great recipe to make for nonvegetarians!

I like to try things out before the fact though and it just so happens that I started making this dish when my daughter was trying out being a vegetarian. It was so popular that I've just kept to the same recipe though from time to time, if the mood strikes, I throw in some meat.

This particular time, I had a leftover batch of prime rib pieces that I had cut off the bone and frozen. On going through my freezer, I happened to spy those and since I was making the chili anyway, decided to just go ahead and add the cooked beef to the recipe. Since it was prime rib, it was deliciously tender! So now I have a use for any of those pieces in the future.

Serve this with a green salad of some sort and try my cornbread recipe to go along with it. Some folks like chili served over rice as well. It is also good with my French Bread or my Whole Wheat French Bread!

Chili with Prime Rib

You can make this strictly vegetarian or you can add any kind of meat or even chicken/turkey.

  • 1-2 gloves of garlic minced – sauteed with onions above
  • Fresh Cilantro or dried cilantro
  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup shredded or cut leftover prime rib pieces

  • 2 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1-2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 3/4 -1 cup broth or water
  • Chili powder to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper or red pepper flakes to taste
  • 1/4 teapsoon cumin
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • Dried Oregano if desired
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1-1/3 cup dried beans soaked overnight (SEE PREP TIP BELOW) or cooked for 2 minutes (SEE QUICK PREP VERSION BELOW)– any combination of beans or substitute 2 15-16 ounce cans of kidney beans or mixture of red beans, black beans, kidney beans – even white beans


GARNISH

  • Cheddar cheese
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Green onions
  • Sour cream
  • Fresh tomatoes


PREPARATION

  1. Sauté the onions and garlic until soft.
  2. Spray inside of slow cooker with olive oil spray (or use vegetable spray). Add onions and garlic/cilantro to slow cooker.
  3. Add rest of ingredients. Stir to combine.
  4. Set on low and cook for at least 8-12 hours to desired consistency.

Serve with cornbread - Another idea – serve over rice.


SCOOP ON DRIED BEANS

Dried beans can be kept indefinitely, although some folks will say that after 12 months, they lose their flavor. I’m kind of on the fence about that because they are in the dormant state until cooked! I store mine in airtight containers in the cupboard and measure out what I need but like to have a variety on hand such as

  • Small white beans
  • Small red beans
  • Garbanzo beans
  • Kidney beans
  • Pinto beans
  • Adzuki beans
  • Black beans
  • Green split peas
  • Yellow split peas

Other favorites are:

  • Black-Eyed peas
  • Black Soybeans
  • Lima beans


PREPPING BEANS

SOAK OVERNIGHT METHOD

  • Measure 1-1/3 cup dried beans.
  • Pick out any imperfect, broken ones – or pick out stones or withered beans and discard.
  • Add 4 cups of water and place beans and water in a container with a lid.
  • Let sit 6-8 hours (or overnight).
  • Drain and rinse beans.

QUICK PREP FOR BEANS

  • Measure out 1-1/3 cup dried beans.
  • Cover with water.
  • Heat to boiling.
  • Remove from heat, cover and let stand (not cooking) for 2 hours.

 

Bean Measuring Stats

When dealing with beans in recipes remember these points:

  • Dry beans will expand to 2-1/2 times their original size when soaked (like many people I know)
  • 2 cups dry beans will equal 5-6 cups of beans when cooked
  • Need a substitute for a 15 ounce can of beans? That would be 1-2/3 cups cooked beans.
  • Starting from the beginning – 2/3 cup of dry beans will equal 1 can of cooked beans – but you need to prep them!

        Me, too - it's all about using what you have in my humble opinion....too much these days is disposable. Thanks so much for commenting - and it wasn't even a chocolate chip recipe as I know you love those!

        "meatless meals" - nahhhh - I don't mind veggie-less meals though! I love meals like this where you can take leftovers and make them into a tasty second meal! Yummmm! Sounds really good - and it's nearly lunchtime here....yumm!!!

        Thanks Dohn - and it is a mystery why some people think that about beans because if they are cooked properly they should not make anyone have the problem more than some other foods! Thanks for reading and commenting - always appreciated....Audrey

        Another great recipe that I'm going to have to steal from you :D I once made some Hormel can chili for myself and my nephew and he gave me a funny look. When I asked the little guy why he reacted in such a way, he told me he didn't like beans because they made him fart! Who knew? LOL I don't have such a problem! *sighs* I can't understand why anyone doesn't like chili. Bookmarked!

        Audrey - Beans with beans and chili with beef. There are more chili recipes out there than there are people to eat the stuff. I like to cut up some chuck into small "cubes" and brown the rascals, plus add some chopped tomatoes with green chilies. Depends on the people downing the chili, but a finely chopped jalapeno pepper goes well, too. You mentioned red pepper flakes. They are great, but next time try pepper flakes that are called "6-pepper." Good stuff. Love chili. Even if someone makes a mistake and dumps in some beans, chili is the bestest.

        Habee- that is hilarious! Yes, that's what I do - I plant hidden cameras and then I watch them in my 'spare time' when I'm not working, writing, cleaning, or training my little Lucifer. You made me laugh out loud - thanks - needed that this morning as I sign on for my 'real job' with my aching back and bones. Glad I could be of help in the recipe department and beware the roving camera eye!

        It look delicious. But for me more chili will give better taste. I like "hot" taste. And I am fans of rib. Thanks

        Too funny - yes indeed! I think a lot about recipes (obviously) and think I am a caterer wannabee. It is really hard now that the kids are grown and we don't have a houseful 24/7 - I keep trying the recipes but I need a larger audience - I guess doing it virtual though is helping!

        akirchner - You always make me hungry. This is one that I think I might actually try. I absolutely love the video. No need to read just turn on the computer and watch the video when it's time to cook.

        Works for me!!!!

        Thanks,

        Sage
