This Spicy Beef recipe is spicy and sweet ~ what a treat to your palette!
I made paleo sambal oelek (a spicy chili sauce) from scratch to use in this recipe and was quite surprised how it turned out. Â Kudos to the maple syrup!
The Spicy Beef is easy to make although the sambal oelek takes a tad more time but it’s worth it.
So ~ here’s the Paleo Spicy Beef recipe for your review. Â I’ve included a link below to make the sambal oelek from scratch unless you want to purchase it at the market (may or may not be paleo).
- 1.5 large white onions, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and minced
- 1/2 tablespoon ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- Coarse salt and fresh ground pepper
- 1.34 pounds ground beef (approximately)
- 1 – 2 tablespoon homemade sambal oelek (depending how spicy you want it)
- In a large skillet, saute the onions in olive oil over medium-high heat.
- Add the garlic, ginger, coriander, cumin, and turmeric.
- Season with salt and pepper then cook until fragrant.
- Add the ground beef and cook through until it’s browned.
- Stir in the paleo sambal oelek and cook through another 5-10 minutes tasting as you go along to adjust for more sambal oelek until you get the right spice flavor.
That’s pretty much it. Â I served this on a bed of rice with sliced petite tomatoes and it was scrumptious!
