  • 1 red bell pepper, diced 
  • 2 green bell peppers, diced 
  • 4 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 1/4 pounds ground beef 
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme 
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • pinch of chili flakes (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes

  • 4 cups beef broth 
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 12 ounce bag of frozen cauliflower rice, or about 2 cups worth
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium high heat. Add onion, peppers, and garlic, and cook, stirring occasionally for about 6-8 minutes, until soft and starting to caramelize. 
  2. Make a space in the center of the pot and add the ground beef, thyme, oregano, paprika, sea salt, and black pepper. Cook, breaking up with a spatula or spoon, until beef is almost completely cooked. 
  3. Add diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, and beef broth. Bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes, until liquid has reduced slightly and veggies are nice and soft. 
  4. Stir in balsamic vinegar and cauliflower rice, and cook on low for another 3-4 minutes, until cauliflower rice is just tender. 
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve topped with some fresh parsley if desired.
