I recently made a great “comfort food” favorite- “Meat Lovers “Vegetarian” Chili! I put an Old Pine Farm Grass Fed meat twist on a recipe from The Pioneer Woman’s Chili. It turned out wonderful and was so tasty on a rain/sleet/snow evening!
In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Sear the cube steak and brown the ground beef/sausage. Add the garlic, onion, 3 colors of bell pepper, carrots, celery, and jalapeno, then cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften. Add the oregano, cumin, chili powder, and salt. Stir and cook for a few more minutes.
Pour in the broth, tomato sauce, and tomato paste. Stir, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the beans, stir, then cover and simmer for 30 more minutes.
Serve with Cotija cheese, pico de gallo, and cilantro.
