A proper cowboy style chilli

  1. Prepare the coffee and while it's hot put your chillies inside to soak.
  2. Peel and slice the onions, thinly slice the garlic. Heat some oil in a large casserole dish on a low-medium heat, fry the onions and garlic for a few minutes.
  3. Add the bay leaves and spices and continue to fry until the onions have softened. If the pan becomes dry from the spices, just add a splash of water.
  4. Take out the chipotle from the coffee and finely chop, add to the pan along with the chopped fresh chillies (if you like it hot)
  5. Add a splash of the coffee, then the cinnamon sticks
  6. Give it a stir, then add the chopped tomatoes and the remaining coffee. Then add the molasses.
  7. Dice the brisket into rough 2cm cubes. Drop it straight into the pan, give it a stir to make sure the meat is submerged. Season, then put a lid on and simmer for four hours.
  8. Occasionally give it a stir to make sure it's not sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  9. After four hours, remove the cinnamon sticks and bay leaves, use a potato masher, or two forks.. to break up the meat and pull it apart.
  10. Now slice your peppers and add those, along with the tinned beans.
  11. Taste for seasoning, serve with basmati rice, roasted sweet potatoes and a dollop of soured cream.

As a youngster, I hit rock bottom and landed myself in a young offenders. I managed to turn my life around, became the first person to earn a Gold D of E Award behind bars and through this found my passion in cooking. I was taken on by Jamie Oliver, eventually started my own business and now find myself catering for royals and celebs. I use my love for food to spread joy and help others find purpose and change their lives. I mentor youngsters who have been in trouble with the law and regularly go back into prisons to share my experiences. I find myself being in a very fortunate position where I am able to do something I really love AND get paid for it!
