  • 1  lb. lean ground beef
  • 1  medium onion, chopped
  • ½  tsp. salt
  • ½  tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2  cloves garlic, chopped
  • ¼ to ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1  tsp. onion powder

  1. Add the ground beef to a large skillet and begin cooking over medium heat.  Add the salt, pepper, and chopped onions; using a wooden spoon break up the beef while continuing to cook it.  Cook the beef until it becomes brown.
  2. Add the remainder of the spices, chopped tomato, and broth (or water); cover; and, turn heat to medium-low and continue cooking until the beef is cooked, the tomatoes are tender and the liquid is evaporated.  Stir occasionally.  Remove from heat and set aside.
