Ingredients: Flank Steak, chili powder, flour, Canola oil, green bell pepper, onion, beef broth, tomato juice, cumin
Embellishments: I substituted flank steak with 7 bone chuck for a substantial price reduction. 2 lb of flank was nearly $18.00 US.! Whoa baby! So, the chuck cost me $7.00 US. It’s a pretty low grade of beef, but since this recipe called for a low temp cook for 1.5 hours I thought it would work. I also subbed homemade turkey broth for the beef, added 2 cloves of diced garlic, and tripled the amount of onions and bell pepper (I used red instead of green as well). I did not bother making the side dish which was a green bean salad since I forgot to buy the green beans.
Prep/Cook time: Prep 15 minutes, cook time 1.5 hours.
Comments: As you know, I am using the “low carb” plan on Emeals, and have not been happy with the use of high carb ingredients. This Emeals recipe called for a 1/2 cup of flour. I ended up using only about 1 Tbsp, but you can see that the gravy is not as thick as it was probably intended to be. Other than the flour, everything about this dish was awesome. Easy prep, and very delicious. So, the rating is a thumbs up !
