Cracked Spur Brisket Chili

1 # ground sirloin, cooked and drained

2#  Smoked Brisket, fine chopped

4 1/2 cups Organic Beef stock

2 1/4 cups water

2  14 oz. bottles of Deep River Specialty Foods Cracked                                     Spur Sauce

1/3 cup onion, fine chopped

3 large cloves Texas Black Gold Garlic, minced

4 Tbsp. Corn Masa

1 Tbsp. canola oil or lard

1 Tbsp. ground Cumin

1 tsp. Kosher Salt

In a 3 quart pot over medium-low heat,place 1 tablespoon oil   adding onion and garlic and cook gently for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the stock, the water and gradually whisk in the corn masa to avoid lumps. Add the beef and brisket, any juices,and the Cracked Spur Sauce then bring to a simmer over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain the barest simmer and cook stirring occasionally, until the meat is tender but still somewhat firm and 1 1/2 to 2 cups of thickened but still liquid sauce surrounds the cubes of meat, about 2 hours.Add more salt if needed to taste. At this point it may look like there is excess sauce. Turn off the heat and let the chili stand for 30 minutes, during which time the meat will absorb about half of the remaining sauce in the pot leaving the meat bathed in a thick, somewhat fluid sauce. Stir in additional broth or water if the mixture seems a bit too dry. If the mixture seems a bit loose and wet, allow it to simmer a bit more.

reheat gently and serve in individual bowls with a dollop of sour cream and a lime wedge.
