Free Paleo Recipes #2

So as I mentioned in my Brower Powder recipe, I was cooking up a mean Paleo chili recipe. Seriously this stuff is amazing. What we need:

  • Ground grass-fed beef – 1 lb
  • Serrano peppers – 1 or 2 chopped or thinly sliced
  • Tomatoes – 5 medium (on the vine type)
  • Scallions – optional
  • Brower Powder – 6-7 rounded tsp or to taste
  • Cilantro

Don’t use serrano’s if you don’t like a lot of heat – but maybe add some more cayenne.

Quick Brower Powder:

  • Paprika – 1 tsp
  • Onion Powder – 2 tsp
  • Minced Garlic – 2 tsp
  • Cayenne Pepper – 1 tsp
  • Seal Salt – 2 tsp
  • Garlic Powder – 1 tsp
  • Cinnamon – 1/2 tsp (trust me)
  • Fresh cracked pepper  – 1/4  to 1/2 tsp
  • Thyme – 1/4 tsp (i grind it up with my fingers to break it down)
Ground lamb or ground pastured pork sausage also makes it crazy awesome – I think I like the pork sausage version the best.  That is pastured pork ground sausage from a farm close by. Don’t use Jimmy Deans…

  1. Brown the ground meat in a sauce pan
  2. Blend tomatoes to a sauce – it will be very watery but thats ok, we are going to reduce it
    • I use a Vitamix because its awesome, but feel free to use any blender
  3. Pour the tomatoes into the sauce pan with the meat
  4. Add Brower Powder, peppers, and stir
  5. Bring to a boil
  6. Reduce heat to a medium-low and allow sauce to reduce and thicken (45-60 minutes) or to your liking
    • Temperature dramatically affect how fast the sauce thickens
  7. Scoop into a bowl and top with scallions and cilantro

If you can find the green onions that are very large – they are fantastic, a sweet fresh onion taste. I find them at a local farmers market.

Asian Spice Chili Variation

Add 3 tsp curry powder and replace Thai pepper instead of serrano. If you try this, leave a comment and let me know what you think. If it really sucks then maybe we can save others from suffering.
