  • 1 lbs 450g of beef cubes
  • 1 medium white onion cut
  • 1 head of garlic peeled and minced
  • 2 green peppers cut
  • 2 cans of diced tomatoes 28 Oz x 2
  • 1 can of tomato paste 5.5 Oz
  • 2 tsp of cumin
  • 1 tsp of paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp of black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp of coconut oil


  1. Heat the skillet over medium-high (I prefer iron cast skillet, as it gives that nice brownish color to vegetables and meat)
  2. Add 1 tsp of coconut oil and add meat
  3. Fry meat for about 5 minutes per each side or until all the sides are golden brown
  4. Place the meat in the separate bowl and set aside
  5. In the same skillet add another 1 tsp of coconut oil, onion and green peppers. Cook stirring for about 5-7 minutes until the onion and peppers soften
  6. Add garlic and cook for another 1 minute
  7. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl or slow cooker
  8. Bring to boil in the large bowl and then reduce the heat to minimum, simmer for 3-4 hours. If you use a slow cooker, cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 7-8 hours.
