Slow-Cooked Beef, Pork, and Bean Chili

This flavorful, lightly-spiced classic chili is made with beef, pork, and beans. It uses a two-stage cook in the Anova Precision Oven: gently cooking the beans from scratch and then a long, slow cook with the rest of the ingredients. Think of this method like using a way-better slow cooker, one with humidity and precise temperature control.
Notes: After further testing, this recipe has been updated to use a different cooking method for the beans and to call for less liquid in the chili.
You can cook the beans ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to use. A 10 1/2-inch wide, 5-inch tall pot will accommodate all of the ingredients and fit in the oven. The jam used in this recipe adds more complex sweetness than more typical brown sugar. If you prefer a less sweet chili, you can leave it out. This makes a big batch, but extras freeze well.
