Episode 51: It's The Duchamp Urinal!

by Kevin Goldstein

No big guests or blow out celebration of an anniversary, just Jason and I babbling about baseball and reading emails from the crazy wing of our listeners. We also talk about French poetry. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language and subject matter. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Jason: here is my family's Cincinnati (Empress) Chile recipe. We probably jacked it from somewhere, but my family is from Cincinnati all the way back to Cincinnatus himself, and this is what they cook.

1 qt. water
2-lbs ground beef, browned and drained
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp cinnamon
2 large onions
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic, chopped (or 1/8 tsp garlic powder)
1 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 Tbsp black pepper
1/2 Tbsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
(2) 6-1/2 oz cans tomato paste **
1 Tbsp vinegar
1/2 Tbsp allspice
3 Bay leaves

Cook all 2-3 hours in a big pot. Real easy.

**May substitute either: 1 can tomato paste & 1 can tomato sauce or: 2 cans tomato sauce (use less water!)

Oh Yes...

Crumble raw meat in water (meat can be frozen). Add ingredients, simmer w/lid on, about 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

Serve over spaghetti, topped with cheese (3-way); add chopped onions (4-way); add red (kidney) beans (5-way).

Don't forget the oyster crackers. Also good on hot dogs, bratwurst, etc.

P.P.S. I've lived in Houston for 20 years. And my family hates me for it, but I much prefer southern chili to the Cincinnati version. Both good, but the Cincinnati verision IS a glorified (but tasty) meat-based condiment.

I enjoyed Capillary Action, and that's not usually my jam. I guess the closest frame of refernce for me is Xiu Xiu, who I don't care for, but CA was better somehow.

Looking forward to the draft episodes!

Yiddish Chili should have been the title of the podcast. This episode proved that you do not need any stinkin' guests to make your show. They need you.

Is there a link to subscribe to updates for those of us that hate iTunes and use a Squeezebox? If not, I guess I have to listen through a browser it seems?
