Beyond Meat Chili

Beyond Meat Chili. I am again venturing into the plant based meat space, because I am so very interested in alternative meat products that can make a dish feel and taste like it has meat in it. I think that this is crucial to encouraging dedicated meat eaters to try a plant based diet. I continually read about partners who want to try an alternative eating style, but can't convince their other half to even consider it. These products offer a compromise.

The first alternative meat recipe that I posted was the Beyond Sausage Sandwich. I honestly really liked the sausage. It definitely tasted like sausage, even though it wasn't exactly healthy. Beyond Meat products do have additives that I prefer that my food not have and I avoid them whenever possible.

I still feel like these products are a positive step toward creating and maintaining meat free diet and this is especially true in households that have several different diet preferences. It is hard to feed a vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free, meat eater and junk food eater at the same table.

Nutritional Information

As you can see by the package, the manufacturers of Beyond Meat Beef advise that the product is gmo, soy and gluten free, contains 20 grams of protein and 250 calories per serving and is lower in fat than beef.

What Are Health Reasons To Try Beyond Meat Products?

Check out the American Heart Association , and their information about diseases related to meat consumption. heart disease, type 2 diabetes . stomach and bowel cancers and obesity.

For now, I am optimistic about the future of meat free products despite the additives as research continues to improve the products. According to nutritionists, meatless products are healthier than meat, despite being processed. Even if the sodium, fat and calories are the same, the other benefits to the environment and animals are significant.

When the weather turns chilly, few things are more welcome than the chance to cozy up to a warm bowl of comfort food, and with football season in high gear, let your dish do double duty by making a tailgate-ready chili. From hearty beef-based bowls to recipes packed with chicken, turkey and beans, there's no shortage of chili varieties, and when it comes to vegetable additions, nearly anything you have on hand in the refrigerator would likely be a fine addition to the pot. Check out Food Network's top-five chili recipes below to find warming recipes from The Pioneer Woman, Bobby Flay, Ina Garten and more Food Network chefs.

5. Simple, Perfect Chili — "It's a total cinch to make," The Pioneer Woman says of her big-batch chili. It's made with a duo of beans and features a pinch of cayenne pepper for subtle heat.

4. 30-Minute Turkey Chili — Swap in turkey for classic beef when making this fuss-free recipe, and set out a toppings bar of fresh cilantro, cool sour cream and grated cheese so everyone can top their own bowls.

3. Beef and Black Bean Chili with Toasted Cumin Crema and Avocado Relish — Instead of opting for ground meat like in traditional chili, Bobby keeps the beef in cubes, and he simmers it in a bold broth featuring warm cumin and chipotle pepper puree.

2. Chicken Chili — Follow Ina's lead and start the chili without meat, then add simply roasted chicken in the final few minutes of cooking before finishing it with your favorite garnishes.

1. Game-Day Chili— You don't have to be an Iron Chef to pull off Geoffrey Zakarian's go-to chili (pictured above). He notes that you can make the recipe with your choice of meat, and he adds a bottle of dark beer as well as red and green hot sauces for over-the-top flavor.

What You’ll Need To Make Ground Beef Chili

Note that the recipe calls for 85% lean ground beef. Don’t be tempted to use extra-lean beef or drain off the fat after browning. The fat bastes the meat during cooking, adding richness and flavor, plus you can skim it off at the end. I don’t use any beans in this chili — my kids tend to eat around them — but feel free to add a can of drained beans for the last half hour of cooking. (Any kind of beans will work.)

Recipe Summary

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped yellow onion (from 1 large onion)
  • 1 cup chopped poblano chile (from 1 chile)
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 pounds 90/10 lean ground chuck
  • 1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup ancho chile powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cups lower-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (12-ounce) bottle of beer
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, sliced jalapeño chiles, sliced radishes, and sour cream, for serving

Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high. Add onion, poblano, and garlic, and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add ground chuck, and cook, stirring occasionally, until beef crumbles and is no longer pink, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain beef mixture well, and return to Dutch oven over medium-high.

Add tomato paste, ancho chile powder, cumin, salt, pepper, thyme, and oregano, and cook, stirring often, 2 minutes.

Increase heat to high. Stir in beans, tomatoes, chicken broth, and beer, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 30 minutes. Serve chili with desired toppings.
