Notes

2. Mock chili

Categories: CookOrDie#23 -- Permalink
I stuffed myself silly on baked+fried beans and ground beef. It was a pretty good meal, although a little heavy on the protein side.

Ingredients for one serving:

- 1 whole onion (adjust) - 4 cloves garlic (adjust) - 1/8 kg ground beef - 200g can of pork and beans, somewhat drained - salt and pepper

To prepare:

<ol> <li> Chop the onions. Crush and chop the garlic. Open the can of beans. <li> Prepare the pan over medium heat. Put a pat of butter in it. When the butter melts and starts sizzling, drop in the onions and the garlic. Stir so that it doesn't burn. The butter will help the heat distribute evenly. <li> After the onions and garlic change color (you can wait for them to be slightly brown, if you want), put in the beef. Add lots of salt and pepper. <li> Brown the beef, breaking up the chunks and stirring briskly. <li> (optional) After the beef has browned, you can drain it to get rid of some fat. (If you're using an electric stove, you can turn the heat off.) <li> Pour the beans into the pan. Stir until you're happy. </ol>

I seem to have gotten the hang of onions and garlic. Whee! That is: I get a significant color change that's not just caused by the butter, and the onion bits become soft and sweet.

Tomorrow lunch: toasted pita bread with beef, onions and garlic.
