Ideal Protein recipe: Just Plain Chili

I was jealous of my colleagues' chili yesterday ... turns out there is an IP-friendly recipe.

Just Plain Chili
Makes 4 servings

  • 2 lbs lean ground beef (or buffalo, or elk, or....)

  • 1 green bell pepper, diced

  • 6 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 3 Tbsp cumin, or to taste

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp chili powder, or to taste

  • 1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes

  1. Light coals in grill. While coals are setting (30-45 minutes), form ground beef into large patties.

  2. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed soup pot, and add freshly ground black pepper.

  3. Add bell pepper and saute 5-7 minutes. Turn heat off and stir in minced garlic.

  4. Grill patties over coals until medium rare, no more than 5 minutes on each side.

  5. Turn heat on high under soup pot, and place patties in with garlic, oil, and pepper mixture.

  6. Break up patties into small pieces with spatula and brown meat thoroughly. Add tomatoes.
    Mash and break up tomatoes with spatula.

  7. Add enough water to cover all ingredients, reduce heat to low, and let simmer 2 hours or more.

ALTERNATE (AKA, what I'm going to do):
Brown meat. Cook peppers and garlic. Throw everything in crock pot and let simmer.

Verdict: Quite good. I subbed jalapeño for some of the green bell pepper and cayenne for some of the chili powder, but I like my chili to bite back a bit. Also, it needs to be salted before serving.
