Chilli Beef Recipe
July 27, 2013
Do your kids eat the same as you each night for dinner? I try to avoid making separate meals for the children as it takes extra time and effort to do so. I like to expose them to a wide variety of flavors and foods. I also make many recipes that can be tweaked prior to serving to suit Mr Fresh and I, adding strong flavors such as fresh chilli or coriander. Mr Fresh and I rarely get to dine out. Our food treats are home made and would include a dish like this one. Despite this general approach to family food at our place, I enjoy the evenings that I serve the boys their favorite Spaghetti Bolognese or Pasties. I am constantly trying new recipes and they are very good at eating most things put in front of them so I enjoy hearing their excitement at being presented with their favorites.
Mr Fresh and I are both huge fans of chilli. My recent discovery of chilpotle chilli has had me adding it to many meals. I love the smokey flavor it imparts. I also recently collected some dried mulato chilli that I have been itching to try – Chilli was on the menu. It is not a family friendly meal, but it is good enough to warrant a separate dinner being prepared (or taken from the freezer supply) for the kids.
This recipe can be easily reproduced on the stove top if you do not have a slow cooker. If cooking by an alternate method you will need to adjust the cooking time to less and add additional liquid.
This recipe is part of my Slow Cooker series I started this Winter. Other recipes from the series are:
