Cincinnati Chili has a thinner consistency with very small pieces of hamburger compared to regular chili. Also, the spices are sweet because the recipe was created by a Greek immigrant using his native spice blend of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
This homemade copycat recipe for authentic tasting Instant Pot Cincinnati chile will become a quick and easy family favorite. The sweet and savory sauce is spiced with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, garlic all infused with beef hamburger and tomato sauce.
Add your ground beef to the Instant Pot pan along with two quarts of water. Cook on sautee setting for 7 minutes, stirring often. Drain water & fat off.
The original restaurant boils the meat right in the sauce and leaves the fat in it. I personally feel that is too much fat so for this Instant Pot Skyline chili recipe, I do a lower fat version and boil the hamburger in water and then drain all the water and fat off of it.
