Ok i suppose im going to be the only one to say this but this is NOT gordon ramsays recipe !! this is marco pier whites recipe....ive looked through all of gordons recipe books (yes i have them all...Including the F word book) and this recipe is NOT in any...Here is the true gordon ramsays chilli con carne recipe :-

Ingredients :

1 tbsp flour
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp cayenne pepper , dry-fried to toast it
1 tsp cumin seeds
300g braising steak , diced (Gordon uses featherblade; ask your butcher)
2 medium red onions , chopped
3 garlic cloves , chopped
2 red chillies , chopped
1 green chilli , chopped
40ml red wine vinegar
½ bottle pinot noir red wine
1 tbsp tomato purée
½ x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
400ml beef stock
20g 70% chocolate
150g mixed cooked beans such as kidney, black and black-eyed beans

Method :

Mix the flour, paprika, cayenne and cumin seeds. Toss the steak in this mixture - you may find it easier to put the lot in a large, sealed plastic bag and shake it all together.
Heat a little oil in a large pan and fry the steak in batches until it browns all over. Tip onto a plate.
Add a little more oil to the pan, then fry the onions, garlic and chillies until the onions brown. Add the vinegar and bubble to a glaze. Do the same with the red wine. Add the tomato purée and cook for 2 minutes, then add the chopped tomatoes and cook for about 5 minutes or until the mixture has reduced by half. Add the stock and beef and cook gently for 1 hour 30 minutes or until the meat is tender. Add the chocolate and beans and heat through the beans. The chocolate will melt into the sauce. Add salt if needed.
Mix the crème fraîche with the coriander and season. Serve with the chilli and mixed wild and basmati rice.

Hope this helps to people who want to try GORDONS real recipe !

Wondering why are there two different amounts of tomato puree? It only mentions using one amount in the method.

This is a great receipe, very yummy, easy to follow and keeps in the fridge well, can serve next day in a wrap with cheese & salad. You dont need the tonnes of herbs mentioned, I just use oregano and tastes great. And I put a bit of tomatoe paste instead of the 2 bits of puree.
