- 3 clove(s) Garlic minced
- 3/4 cup(s) Leeks sliced and chopped
- 2/3 cup(s) matchstick carrots chopped
- 1/2 cup(s) red cabbage sliced and chopped
- 1/3 cup(s) pimiento-stuffed olives coarsely chopped
- 1/3 cup(s) raisins
- 1/2 teaspoon(s) cayanne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon(s) paprika
- 1 teaspoon(s) cumin
- 1 teaspoon(s) garlic salt
- 1/2 can(s) fire roasted crushed tomatos chopped - regular sized can
- 1 cup(s) low-salt beef broth
- 1/2 can(s) tomato sauce small can
- 1/2 cup(s) cup finely chopped cilantro finely chopped
- 2 whole(s) limes cut into 8 wedges
- prepare all of the ingredients and measure out spices
- In a very large skillet
- lightly brown the meat, garlic , onions and leek over medium heat
- once the meat is mostly browned add the carrots and red cabbage
- cook for another 3 minutes
- add the spices, raisins and olives
- cook for another 3 minutes.
- Taste and add more spices as needed - be careful - as the tomato sauce and beef broth add more salt and all of the flavors will concentrate and intensify as it cooks.
- add the crushed tomatos, tomato sauce and beef broth and stir well to combine all of the flavors.
- Simmer on medium to medium low for 12 to15 minutes - there should still be some sauce and moisture, but it should be thick (think sloppy joe's)
- Turn off and let cool slightly
- server over brown rice or in lettuce wraps with chopped cilantro on top and a squeeze of lime juice
- This recipe freezes well - I double or tripple it - cook it on batches or in 2 skillets and freeze in individual servings for easy lunches and dinners
