Ground Beef..umm.. Surprise?!

07 Mar

I came across this recipe some time back.  It has no name.  Not that it didn’t when I adopted it, just that it doesn’t now.  The top seems to have well been ripped off. 😐  So my apologies for the “no name” recipe.  That’s why it’s gotten the name Ground Beef… umm.. Surprise?!  If you can come up with a better one, please share your ideas.  We would all love to hear them.

Here’s the recipe with no name..

  • 2 lbs. Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 3 tbls. Oil
  • 16 oz. Can Tomatoes
  • 4 tbls. Vinegar
  • 1 to 2 tsps. Cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. Cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup Raisins, plumped in
  • 1/2 cup Water or Stock
  • 4 oz. Green Chilis, diced
  • 1 cup Almonds, slivered and blanched

     Brown meat and onion in oil.  Add all the other ingredients except the almonds.  Add enough water or stock to the desired thickness of your liking.  Stir to blend, bring to boil.  Reduce heat and simmer 30-45 minutes.  Stir in almonds and serve while hot.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

**This freezes well.
