Instructions

Slow Cooker

  • Melt the ghee in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onions and bell peppers, and a big pinch of salt. Sauté until soft and tender. This will take about 5-7 minutes. Add garlic cloves and cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the grass-fed ground beef and stir until is is cooked through and no longer pink.
  • Transfer the vegetables and meat to your slow cooker and turn it on.
  • Add all of the spices and stir well.
  • Add diced tomatoes, broth, half of the coconut cream, and green chilies and stir until well combined.
  • Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours. Once it's ready, add any or all of the toppings listed. Taste for additional salt and pepper and, add any or all of the toppings listed.

Instant Pot

  • Turn your Instant Pot on and select the "Sauté" function. Melt the ghee in your Instant Pot. Add the onions, bell peppers, and a big pinch of salt. Sauté until soft and tender. This will take about 5-7 minutes. Add garlic cloves and cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the grass-fed ground beef and stir until is is cooked through and no longer pink. Add all of the spices and stir well.
  • Add diced tomatoes, broth, half of the coconut cream, and green chilies and stir until well combined.
  • Seal the Instant Pot lid and select the "Manual" function. Press the "-" button to change the cooking time to 10 minutes. Be sure it is set to "High Pressure."
  • Once the soup is done cooking, release the pressure from your Instant Pot by changing the dial to the "Venting" function. Once the pressure has all been released, open the lid carefully and stir in the other half of the coconut cream. Taste for additional salt and pepper and, add any or all of the toppings listed.

Stove Top

  • Melt the ghee in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add onions, bell peppers, and a big pinch of salt. Sauté until soft and tender. This will take about 5-7 minutes. Add garlic cloves and cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the grass-fed ground beef and stir until is is cooked through and no longer pink. Drain the beef through a colander and re-add it to the pan. Add all of the spices and stir well.
  • Add tomatoes, broth, coconut cream, and green chilies and stir until well combined.
  • Bring the soup to a low boil and reduce the heat to a simmer. Let is simmer for about 20-25 minutes. Taste for additional salt and pepper and, add any or all of the toppings listed.

Notes

  • I recommend using a 90/10 grass-fed ground beef.
  • You can alternatively use ground chicken thighs or pork.
  • This will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • You can store it in the freezer in small batches for up to 3 months.
