Low Carbohydrate Recipe
No-Bean Chili with garlic, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, lots of tender beef seasoned with cumin, oregano and chili pepper. Jalapeno peppers optional and a can of beer for that extra finishing touch.
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 onions, chopped
1 green bell peppers, chopped
3 pounds beef
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground oregano
3 tablespoons chili powder
10 tomatoes, peeled and chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, optional
1 can beer
Heat oil in a large heavy skillet. Add garlic, onions and green pepper. Saute until soft, about five to seven minutes.
Add beef and lightly brown on all surfaces. Drain off some of the fat if a lot has accumulated. Lean beef trimmed of all fat should not have an excess amount, however.
Add remaining ingredients and simmer for one hour or slightly longer. Put a cover on skillet during cooking time, and slightly tilt it so steam can escape. Check often and stir to prevent sticking. Skim off fat as it rises.
Best if allowed to sit, tightly covered, for an hour after cooking is complete.
