We eat these quite a bit – in tortillas or on nachos. If you had the forethought to thaw your hamburger this recipe is done in less than twenty minutes, making it a great choice for a busy weeknight dinner. You could also use leftover roast chicken and have it on the table even sooner. Adapted from Cook’s Illustrated.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, chopped finely
3 medium cloves chopped garlic
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 pound organic, grass fed ground beef
1 8 ounce can of organic tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1 Tablespoon Rockridge Orchards apple cider vinegar
In a skillet, brown onion in oil about 4 minutes until just beginning to soften. Add garlic, spices, salt and ground beef. Cook, breaking up meat until just beginning to brown. Add tomato sauce, sugar and vinegar. Simmer five to ten minutes until meat is done and flavors are melded.
