My empty google search for 'curry chili' led me to create this fantastic recipe. My family loved it. I hope yours does, too! Substitute beef with your favorite ground venison, venison sausage, or both. I've used 1 pound ground moose and 1 pound moose sausage and it was awesome!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add beef; cook and stir until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. (Drain and discard grease.)

  • Stir onion, curry powder, cumin, coriander seed, cloves, and caraway seeds into the beef. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook and stir until the onion softens, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Mix diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and tomato paste into the beef mixture. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Add light red kidney beans, dark red kidney beans, and frozen mixed vegetables. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors are blended, about 45 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute beef with your favorite ground venison, venison sausage, or both. I used 1 lb ground moose and 1 lb moose sausage and it was awesome!

Try it in a slow cooker. Brown the meat in frying pan and drain. Add all spices and onion; cook until meat is no longer pink. Transfer mixture to slow cooker and add the rest of the ingredients. Ready in 4 to 6 hours.

For more heat, add jalapenos to taste. Do not use red pepper; it just doesn't mix well with this recipe.
