Dukan Diet Cruise Phase Recipe: Easy Chili Beef

This is an easy recipe to follow and I’ve provided it for Sharon who earlier today asked for a Chili Con Carne recipe for the Cruise Phase. You can serve it on a plate with Cauliflower Rice or Shirataki “rice”, in a bowl with your Oatbran Pancake/Galette spiced up and cut into “tortillas” or use it as a stuffing in various vegetables, such as bell peppers, beefsteak tomatoes, courgettes or marrow.


Easy Chili Beef (Three to four servings)

Ingredients

  • 16 oz of Extra Lean Ground/Mince Beef
  • 2 Diced Onions
  • 3 Finely Diced Cloves of Garlic
  • 1 Large Jar of Salsa of your choice
  • 1 Beef Stock Cube
  • 1 Large tablespoon of Tomato Puree
  • 1 tablespoon of Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of Cornstarch/Corn Flour
  • Chili Powder to obtain desired heat!

Method

  1. Dry fry beef in a pan until cooked and meat releases juices.
  2. Remove the meat leaving the  juices in pan and keep warm.
  3. Cook onion and garlic in meat juices until soft.
  4. Crumble the stock cube into a jug and add a little boiling water with the tomato puree, balsamic vinegar and cornflour and stir well.
  5. Mix this into the meat and add the salsa.
  6. Add chili powder with more water or tomato puree or cornstarch/cornflour to get the seasoning and consistency of your choice.

    Hi Amber

    What brand or what do I need to look for when buying a jar of salsa? Sounds delish.

    TIA Julie xxx

      Hi again

      It is a case of checking jars to find thoses that don’t contain added, sugar, oil or starches. For example the El Paso brand has sugar and corn starch. In the UK it is often more difficult for us to find these products:(

      It does take a little longer but you can make this recipe with tinned chopped tomatoes and some green/red chopped peppers that you’d cook at same with the onions.

      Best wishes

      Amber:)
