  1. Fry, then crumble the sausage.
  2. Add all ingredients except crumbled sausage and beef to a stockpot, bring to a boil. Add the beef a little at a time, so that the pieces don't stick together, and reduce to a medium simmer for about 1 hour or until beef cubes are almost tender, stirring every 15 minutes.
  3. Add crumbled sausage and reduce heat to a low simmer until beef cubes are tender, another 1/2 to 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  4. The wheat bran flakes add no taste, but makes the chili thicker, and the fiber content is good for digestion.
  5. Most chili recipes use coarsely ground beef. This one uses 1/4 inch cubes of beef, which would be like very, very coarsely ground beef. It gives the dish a unique heavier texture, and this recipe is a little soupier than most chili recipes. I now use a #22 meat grinder with a grinder plate that has 3/4 inch holes to grind the beef instead of spending the lengthy time to dice the beef into 1/4 inch cubes.
