Texas Style Chili

I got some very nice stew meat from the butcher this week.  I have been hungry for chili so I made some!!

Texas Style Chili

2 lbs stew meat
1 onion, roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic, sliced
2 T olive oil
2 T chili powder
1 1/2 t  ground cumin
1 T almond flour
2 T arrowroot powder
1 T oregano
2 to 2 1/2 cups beef broth
1/2 t salt (if needed)
Fresh ground pepper
Shredded cheese, optional

1. Heat oil in large pot over medium high heat. Add beef cubes and brown on all sides.
2. Reduce heat to medium and add onions and garlic.
3. In a small bowl assemble the dry ingredients.  Add to the meat mixture and stir very well to make sure it is evenly distributed.
4. Add 2 cups of beef broth.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer partially covered for about 2 hours.  Stir occasionally.
5. Add remaining broth, if needed.  Chili will be done when the meat begins to fall apart.
6. Top with cheese and Enjoy!!
