This recipe is an adaption of Pat Crocker and Nettie Cronish’s “Flex Appeal”, a vegetarian cookbook that includes an adaptation for each recipe to satisfy meat-eaters as well. And all the recipes can be prepared in under an hour. I didn’t think I liked chili until I tried this one, but it is fantastic. I always make a double batch and freeze some.

I like to make these as hors d’oeuvres when I’m feeling fancy. They knock everyone’s socks off! You can also use ground beef or chicken.
I first had these at Forks Farm in Pennsylvania, and they truly are the Best Ever. They come from Shannon Hayes’ Grassfed Gourmet cookbook, which was gifted to me by the farmers at Forks Farm after I left. My copy is so worn now it’s time I bought a new one – and if you want to excel at preparing pastured and grassfed meats, you should get one too!
This beef stew is my absolute favourite. It’s adapted from The Complete Meat Cookbook by Bruce Aidells and Denis Kelly and is amazing over roasted winter vegetables or mashed potatoes.
