Ok, so I realize that the title may seem a bit much, but I am not lying. This stuff is insane. It is Paleo, but even if you aren’t Paleo you will love it (My husband sure did!).
My goal when I am making supper (do you call it supper or dinner?) is to include as many veggies as possible. I feel like soup is a guaranteed way to make this dream a reality. A serving of veggies is usually 1 cup raw or 1/2 cup cooked. Consequently, in a big bowl of soup, it is possible to be eating 4 entire serving of veggies (btw: I believe in GIANT bowls of soup.)
With the dawn of October, I have had one thing on my mind: Chili. Now, I realize I posted a Paleo Pumpkin Chili recipe about a month ago, and while it was good, it was not perfect. Consequently, I decided that this weekend was time to reach perfection: Game. Set. Match.
The reason why I call this Chili/Stew/Amazingness in a Bowl is because it does not firmly belong in any one category. In my humble opinion, it gleans from the best of all genres.
This is a slow-cooker recipe, but it can easily be done in over the oven. However, if you do not have a crockpot, you really must go to Target and pick on up. They are $20. Seriously, it will be the best purchase of your life.
Sally Anne’s Amazingness in a Bowl
1 lb lean ground beef (you could easily substitute turkey or tofu)
1 medium onion (Chopped)
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 sweet potatoes (peeled and diced)
2 cups cabbage (chopped)
1 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup diced celery
2 diced zucchini/summer squash

Diced tomatoes with green chilis (12 oz)
2 beef bouillon cubes
2 tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
2 cups tomato juice
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1) Saute onion, garlic, and ground beef in 1 tbsp. olive oil over medium heat until meat is brown
2) Dice veggies and place in crockpot (I dice veggies in advance) also the celery and zucchini is not pictured
3) Dump all tomato ingredients in the crockpot
4) And then proceed to put your entire spice cabinet into the crockpot
5) Cook on low 6-8 hours
I served my bowl of Amazingness with diced avocado….So. Stinking. Good. Chase liked his with a cap full of Apple Cider Vinegar
Seriously, you need to make this! I have been looking forward to dinner since waking up this morning!
