1 1/2 pounds lean high-quality ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

FOR THE CHILI:
Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the garlic and onions, and saute over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Add the beef and saute for 7 to 8 minutes longer, while stirring frequently, or until the beef is well browned on all sides. Season with salt and pepper, stir in the chili powder, and cook for 2 minutes more. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, beef stock, beer, vinegar, cumin, oregano, and parsley, and stir well to combine.

Bring to a simmer, turn down the heat to low, and cook, covered, for 45 minutes. Add the beans and cook for 15 minutes longer, stirring occasionally. Ladle into serving bowls and sprinkle with the goat cheese.

HELPFUL TIPS:
Most chili dishes actually taste better the next day, after the flavors have had time to marinate and marry. You can use black beans instead of kidney beans if you prefer, or a mixture of the two.
