Beef Chili : Low Carb

One pot cooking is just so good, and this low carb beef chili recipe is a favourite. There are quite a few combinations many of us use when it comes to our favourite Chili recipes. For those living the LCHF lifestyle why not serve it with cauliflower rice or a green salad, which is my particular favourite.

I like the red cooking pot shown here, I may have to get some LOL! it adds to the warmth of the Chili somehow, don't you think!

Serves Nine
8g carb per serving
2 lb lean ground (minced) beef (10% fat)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cumin
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 garlic cloves, crushed
3/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp hot red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp ground allspice
6 oz. tomato paste
3 bay leaves
4 oz. canned mushroom slices, drained (ok to use fresh)
3/4 cup chopped green bell pepper

1. In large stockpot, brown meat, drain fat.
2. Add 4 cups cold water, cinnamon, cumin, onions, Worcestershire sauce, garlic cloves, salt, chili powder, black and red pepper, allspice, tomato paste, bay leaves, mushrooms, and green pepper. Bring to a boil.
3. Reduce to simmer. Cover and cook 3 hours, stirring occasionally. Remove bay leaves before serving.

Lots of fabulous warming spices makes this very flavoursome I suspect.
Another lovely winter one pot meal, I cooked a goulash yesterday, it's the weather turning cooler!

I absolutely love chili.

Such a great recipe! I love all the ingredients in it and I also love that it's a one pot meal. My favourite type! That pot is indeed really nice. I've seen a similar one around here in turquoise and may have to pick it up at one point. Colourful kitchen items always making cooking that much more fun!

One pot cooking is always a winner. And we have (and I love) a red pot which looks very similar.

I wonder if I could make this recipe with faux beef ground, it looks good!

Debbie said...

Carol Blackburn said...

This sounds great but I wish there was something to thicken it other than using anything tomatoe. Tomatoes seem to give me a problem lately. Any suggestions? Maybe I should experiment a bit, huh?

That recipe sounds so like our own and then I noticed. No Kidney beans! We like to use fresh chillies, mostly red but with one or two green and then add a bit of chilli powder near the end. Like you say, three or more hours in a Le Creuset and then turn off the oven to cook more in the pot. Mmm, Think I'll have to go make one now.
