Japanese cuisine is all about subtle, nuanced flavors and delicate presentation, so hells yeah!, let's dump some half ass chili on that shiat!

I'm taking it out on the millions of people that call it Cincinnati chili. Including skyline. It's not chili, it's coney.

Then after I beat all of them to death, I'm taking it out on the people that cry about IT HAS CINNAMON IN IT OMG AHHHHHHH

It doesn't look like ramen. More like a pile of cheese on top of a pile of unknown solids in a reddish-brown broth.

Waaay too much cheddar. Otherwise, the concept is sound. It's not ramen, though.

I told a guy in Greece that us Americans are experts at ruining everyone else's food. We will use the cheapest, subpar ingredients and utterly disrespect the traditions and taste.

...here is yet another example of that.

$15.00 for a kit that serves how many?

Or you could buy a can of the "real stuff" to add to your ramen.

Now, don't get me wrong.  Chili mac is great.  I usually make some after I make a big pot of slow-cooker chili.  But this ... this is an abomination.

The ones here mostly do the bowl/cup, they call it dip. I know the West coasters call it swoll/swole. they add chili, ramen,peanut butter, whatever other protein they can get from the kitchen.

Bring it on!

It's cincinnati style chili! Aka mock turtle soup aka meat sauce.

And it's farking delicious on a hot dog or on noodles. Or hell I've even put it on fried taters.

And yes once I could, I ran very very far from Cincinnati after almost a year and a half being stuck in there in the time of the Covid.

Do miss skyline though.

Never had a 3 way or a cony? One of the rules in Cincinnati style is that everything is topped with a heaping mound or iridescent yellow/orange cheese.

I don't whine about the cinnamon.

I just point out it is bland, flavorless garbage. It's right up there with that little fat girl putting ketchup on her buttered spaghetti. No, that's probably better.

But eat what you like.

Bland? That's a first. It's got allspice and cloves, I've never heard anybody describe anything with those two in it as bland. Almost always it's "overpowering".

Bruh, as the minority Cincinnati coney/chili lovers here on fark, we will not be fighting. But when I was first introduced to it like 30 years ago by my brother in law who grew up in Ohio, he called it Cincinnati coney. And as a Michigan boy all my life, having had about a million coney dogs in my life, in which the sauce is very similar to the Cincinnati style, I'm calling it coney.

We can discuss chili. With beans, without beans, corn, no corn, whatever. But the tomato based spiced meat sauce atop spaghetti, topped with yellow cheese, with or without beans, with or without diced onions, is Coney. Plain and simple. And it's skylines fault for calling it chili and turning so many people off to it without ever having tried it, because "tHaTs NoT cHiLi!!!"

Technically it wasn't skyline, wouldn't we have to blame Empress for starting the "Chili" trend?

Also I like Michigan coneys, though yall tend to have a thicker sauce than Cinci.

Though growing up in Cinci, Yeah no one ever said "let's go get chili" it was "go get conies" or "I want a 3 way"

The only time I've heard "let's get chili" happened during my covid stint from my foreman, and that just struck me as all kinds of wrong.

But I would love to get your recipe!

Was empress the place that "invented" it? I always just assume skyline since they're the most well known, never had either, only ever drove through Cincy a few times.

Medium diced white onion
6 cloves garlic
5 cups water
6 oz can of Tomato paste
1/2 oz baking chocolate (unsweetened - I use Baker's brand)
1/4 cup chili powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, or less, depending on your desired heat level
1/8 tsp black pepper
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 1/4 lb lean ground beef

Saute the onion till soft, add garlic and saute a few minutes, and tomato paste and AC vinegar, stirring pretty much constantly until... Well, you think it's time to stop. Add water, stir a bit, then crumble raw ground beef and use a potato masher to get it into really fine bits. Add spices, realize it's still got raw beef in it so you can't taste, get annoyed, hope for the best, simmer for like 2-3 hours until it's the right consistency.

Last couple times I've made it I omitted the chocolate and cinnamon, just because I didn't have any on hand but had everything else. Wasn't really noticable, but yeah. Also probably double the spices cuz I just eyeball it.

Chicago Pizza and dogs, conies, Appalachia. Upper Penensula. Bonfires and whiskey, trucks and jeeps.

I'm stuck in Michigan and gonna die in Michigan. And I'll probably die before Michigan farking beats Ohio State.

Bonfires, trucks, mud, being a GOOD type of redneck is always fun. Across the street from my apartment complex is a row of regular houses, and two of them side by side are basically always having a bonfire after the sun goes down, and I really wanna just show up and be like hey, let's be friends and shiat.

Do it! I've made friends that way. Just bounce on over with a bottle of bourbon or a 12 pack of Yueingling, or in the case of Michigan, Bells and Founders 😍

I would say that the Midwest is some of the friendliest people.

I'm at the heart of Mormon territory and those people are just weird. It's a farking cult. Which is fine, I've been making acquaintances at the local bar and it's funny as hell bonding over being outsiders from the Midwest or East coast now in Mormon territory.

Ohio at least has parts of appalachia...

No this last move to Utah is my last trip across the planes. I do not like Kansas, Iowa, etc.. I am never making that drive again. East through west it sucks. I once made the drive in a day from Minnesota to Austin, north to south sucks too.

People bash Ohio. Hell I bash Ohio.

But yeah you're in a worse place.

The whole Midwest is basically a farking orgy of "live here and die here" Ive farking got out.... multiple times.

think the Ohio thing is we all try to leave, but its like this black hole that always tries to pull us back, be it family, friends, etc.. just ignore that shiat. Cut off communication and live your life.

Axeofjudgement: 151: I'm stuck in Michigan and gonna die in Michigan. And I'll probably die before Michigan farking beats Ohio State.

Bonfires, trucks, mud, being a GOOD type of redneck is always fun. Across the street from my apartment complex is a row of regular houses, and two of them side by side are basically always having a bonfire after the sun goes down, and I really wanna just show up and be like hey, let's be friends and shiat.

Do it! I've made friends that way. Just bounce on over with a bottle of bourbon or a 12 pack of Yueingling, or in the case of Michigan, Bells and Founders 😍

I would say that the Midwest is some of the friendliest people.

I'm at the heart of Mormon territory and those people are just weird. It's a farking cult. Which is fine, I've been making acquaintances at the local bar and it's funny as hell bonding over being outsiders from the Midwest or East coast now in Mormon territory.


I love the call-out for bells/founders. That's awesome you know that. Highly doubt you can get it, but m-43 is a really enjoyable brew. Founders made something that was really high octane a couple years ago but I can't remember the name of. I'm not much a beer guy, but I'll always recommend anything voodoo ranger, ipa but not hoppy, some very high octane, but all of em taste farking great.

Smackledorfer: 151: Pants full of macaroni!!: Let me just state for the record that, though I am in Ohio, I am nowhere near Cincinnati, so please don't take this out on me.

I'm taking it out on the millions of people that call it Cincinnati chili. Including skyline. It's not chili, it's coney.

Then after I beat all of them to death, I'm taking it out on the people that cry about IT HAS CINNAMON IN IT OMG AHHHHHHH

/My recipe for it makes 8 quarts of sauce. 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. And I've worked with executive chefs that put nutmeg in Alfredo. Stop farking whining about the cinnamon.

I don't whine about the cinnamon.

I just point out it is bland, flavorless garbage. It's right up there with that little fat girl putting ketchup on her buttered spaghetti. No, that's probably better.

But eat what you like.

:)


You want bland? Try a Maid Rite loose meat sammich if you're passing thru Iowa.

Dude. The Two hearted was my fishing beer. I've spent enough time in Michigan and been through Kalamazoo a few times. It's all better than Wisconsin and their hard on for Spotted Cow.

Interestingly out here? I have access to Founders Breakfast stout and their Kentucky Breakfast stout. I've bought it a few times at the Utah ran liquor stores. Delicious stouts. I pay about a 30% mark up out here than ohio or Michigan.

I have never heard of m-43 though🤔

Me and the voodoo have a close relationship, I've drank enough of the voodoo variety packs. It's always a great bang for your buck.

Two hearted was really good. Looks like m43 is a VERY local brew, maybe even just a reservation type local. Their website kinda sucks, so I can't really get a good answer.

farking love voodoo though. Goddamn it tastes so good. And...2 is really enough.

Bland? That's a first. It's got allspice and cloves, I've never heard anybody describe anything with those two in it as bland. Almost always it's "overpowering".


I don't know what to tell ya. I visited skyline the one time and that's the last time. I have been told that if I liked onions and added a pile of raw white onions to the top it would pull it altogether, and that I ordered the "wrong" cinci chili.  I guess I'll never know.  Mind you this was a decade ago so I don't have a perfect memory of it, but I ate some, my brother traveling with me ate some, and we looked at one another and immediately said "wtf is this garbage.  mushy spaghetti, bland sauce, and the one time in our lives we thought "too much cheese"."  And I like cheese, but no dish should be 50% mild cheddar.

I can't even say I remember it as gross or anything. It was just like, a pile of excess calories without any interesting or desired flavors. Maybe bland isn't exactly the right word. Boring, uninteresting, passive?  I can't deny that it was definitely a source of food and nourishment, and as such my body was ok with chewing and swallowing it, but beyond that, it just left me feeling empty and thinking "why is this a thing?".  And I'm sure it being played up by its fanbase, and our having added almost an hour to our road trip to add it to the list, plays a role in my experience and memory of it.

This is coming from a guy who go to any chow hall and walk away thinking "that was fine" with no complaints. It didn't even make it up to cafeteria food level for me. MREs taste better.


And having likely gone somewhat overboard by typing all that up, let me reiterate: Keep liking what I don't like, it's totally cool and I'm happy for you.

Cheers.
