A great dish for a comfort dinner, and even better as leftovers!

  • 1 lbs. beef, grass-fed or pastured, organic
  • 1/2 c. tomato sauce, organic
  • 1 onion, any type, organic
  • 2 celery stalk, fresh, organic
  • 2 carrot, fresh, organic
  • 2 bay leaf, organic
  • 1 chili pepper, jalapeno, fresh, organic
  • 3 c. beef broth, organic
  • 2 tsp. cayenne pepper, powder, organic
  • sea salt, unrefined, & fresh ground pepper, organic to taste
  • 1 tbs. tomato paste, organic

Using a Dutch oven, add vegetables and cook over medium high heat until soft (about 7 minutes).

Slightly increase heat and add tomato paste. Cook until the bottom of the pot is browning. Stir and scrape brown bits from the bottom.

Add the ground beef and cook until browned. (About 5 minutes) Add the tomato sauce, bay leaves and spices. Mix well.

Add the broth and bring to a boil and cook until reduced by half. (About 10 minutes) Cover and simmer for another 20 minutes.

You can always add more cayenne or jalapenos if it isn't as spicy as you'd like.
