Cincinnati Chili

1 qt. water
2 lbs ground beef
2 med onios, chopped
2 8oz cans tomato sauce
5 whole allspice
1/2 tsp red pepper...cayenne
1 tsp ground cumin
4 Tbsp. chili powder
1 Tbsp cocoa
4 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp vinegar
1 lg. bayleaf
5 whole cloves
2 tsp. worchershire sauce
1 tsp cinnamon
 
Stir beef in water until meat seperates.  Boil slowly for 30 minutes.  Add all other stuff, stir, bring to boil.  Reduce heat, simmer uncovered 3 hrs.  Last hour, pot may be covered after desired consistency is reached.
 
Chili should be refrigerated overnite so that fat can be lifted from top before reheating.  (I usually do this when I cook the meat first, drain fat, then add water and go from there)
 
For those who wonder where the beans are, there are no beans in Cincinnati chili... with beans, it's called a two-way, add onions on top, a 3-way, plus cheese a 4 way and with spaghetti a 5 -way.
