Grass fed ground beef is always our most consistently-ordered product, and for good reason. Versatile, tasty, and reliable, this is the go-to meat choice in our house, and for many of our customers it is a kitchen staple.

Our ground beef is made from one steer at a time, so the composition changes a bit with the muscling and fat from each animal, but we typically target a lean to fat ratio between 80/20 and 85/15. This turns out to be a good all-purpose ground beef mixture.

Ground Beef Chili Mole

Grass Fed Beef and Bean Chili Mole

Katy Sparks
If you’ve ever encountered an authentic mole (a famous Mexican dried chili-chocolate sauce thickened with nuts or seeds) made with love and care you may have been as struck as I was by the haunting alchemy of its flavors. I first tasted a handcrafted mole at Rick and Deann Bayless’s wondrous Chicago restaurant Topolobampo. Not to build up too much expectation here because this recipe is a quick, down and dirty version of the great sauce — but in this context I think it is very rewarding. The local grass-fed beef anchors the whole dish and the nod to the mole via employing some of its key ingredients (unsweetened cocoa powder, ground pumpkin seeds, cinnamon) makes for a fun and delicious twist on a more traditional beef and bean chili. As with most long-cooked dishes, try to make it one day or even two days before you plan to serve it. The powerful flavors are best softened and melded by the extra time and proximity. Aren’t we all?

Ingredients
  

  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 poblano chili, seeded and minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb grass fed and finished ground beef
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 T ground dried red chili powder Try to find dried ancho chili powder, the fresher the better.
  • 1 T freshly ground cumin seed
  • 1 tsp ground coriander seed
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 T unsweetened cocoa powder I use Guittard's Cocoa Rouge Powder
  • 2 T tomato paste
  • 2/3 cup finely ground raw, unsalted pumpkin seeds You can substitute raw unsalted almond butter
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 cups crushed canned tomatoes
  • 2 cups beef broth or vegetable broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cups cooked white beans
  • 1 cup cooked red kidney beans

Notes

In a heavy bottomed dutch oven, heat the olive oil until it shimmers. Add the onion, poblano chili and garlic and stir frequently until all these have softened — about 4 minutes. Add the ground beef and season lightly with salt and fresh ground black pepper, stir until beef is browned. Add the chili powder, cumin, coriander seed, cinnamon and cocoa powder to the beef and stir well over medium heat to activate the spices.
Add the tomato paste, ground pumpkin seeds (or almond butter) and oregano to the beef mixture. Stir well to combine. Add the crushed tomatoes, broth and the bay leaf. Bring the chili mixture up to a strong simmer, cover and reduce the heat to a low simmer.
After 1 hour add the beans. If chili is getting too thick, add a little more broth or water.
Serve with warmed soft corn tortillas, sour cream or yogurt and a fresh herb like marjoram or cilantro and a little dollop of sautéed greens.

Instructions
 

For the Meatloaf

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs and milk and stir. Let the breadcrumbs hydrate in the milk for about 20 minutes.
  • In a larger bowl, combine the ground beef with the remaining ingredients including the hydrated bread crumbs. Shape into a loaf with your hands and place on a baking sheet or alternately use a loaf pan.
  • Bake until the internal temperature of the loaf is 150 degrees- it will rest up to 160. Cool slightly before slicing and serving.

For the Tomato Relish

  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and dress with the garlic, sliced onion, olive oil, rosemary, lemon zest and coriander seed.
  • Lay out skin side up on a parchment lined baking sheet. Roast until tomatoes begin to brown and blister- about 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and transfer the blistered tomatoes to a bowl. Season with the balsamic vinegar, red pepper flakes, sea salt and black pepper.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
