1. In a large heavy skillet over moderately high heat, warm 3 tablespoons
of the oil. Brown beef in batches, adding more oil as necessary and
transferring meat with a slotted spoon to a large stockpot when well
browned. Do not crowd skillet.

2. Reduce heat to moderately low. Add onion and garlic and saute until
softened (about 10 minutes). Add to stockpot along with broth, beer, the
water, chili powder, tomato, tomato paste, and oregano.

3. In a small skillet over low heat, toast cumin seed until fragrant; do
not allow to burn. Grind in an electric minichopper or with a mortar and
pestle. Add to stockpot.

4. Over high heat bring mixture to a simmer. Add salt, cayenne, and more
chili powder to taste. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook, partially
covered, until beef is tender (about 1-1/2 hours). Check occasionally and
add more broth if mixture seems dry. If chili is too thin when meat is
tender, stir in up to 2 tablespoons masa harina. Cook an additional 5
minutes to thicken. Serve chili hot.
