1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp dried oregano
Cut the beef into 1 inch cubes. Combine the flour, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Put the cubed beef in paper or plastic bags together with the seasoned flour and shake well to coat (do this in 4 or 5 batches, using a bit of seasoned flour every time).
Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Add the beef, again in batches so that the pan is not over-crowded, and brown well on all sides. Remove browned beef and repeat with the next batch.
When all the meat has browned, return to the pan and add the Colorado chile sauce, garlic and oregano. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until the meat is tender. During cooking, uncover and stir several times, adding a bit of water if necessary.
When the chili is ready, taste and adjust with more salt and black pepper if necessary.
Serve on warm flour tortillas or cornbread and sour cream.
