Paleo Challenge Day 1: No Beans About It- Turkey Chili Recipe
Paleo Diet ! The BF and I finally decided to commit to a 30 days challenge. Kudos to the BF.. he actually went to buy the Paleo for Athlete book so that we can research on this diet. We have heard many good things about this diet and thought that we should try it for a month. I figured that this will be good for the BF as he eats pizzas and burgers every week.
The BF chose 1 May as Day 1 of the challenge. So here we are... on this cave man diet for one month.
Another Kudos to the BF. He planned the menu for this week on Sunday afternoon and went to buy all the ingredients yesterday.
We decide to make a Turkey Chili for dinner last night so that he could have it for lunch today. ( Today being Day 1)
He found an easy but yummy recipe on All Recipe. We both agreed that this a keeper. Its really awesome !
1 pound ground beef
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, chopped
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1. Crumble the ground beef into a stock pot or large Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
2. Add the onion and garlic, and cook stirring frequently until beef is evenly browned. Drain off excess grease.
3. Season with chili powder, oregano, cumin and hot sauce. Stir in the tomatoes and vinegar. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 1 hour - or longer if you have time. Stir occasionally to prevent burning on the bottom.
