Beef Chili Recipe – Paleo! (Organ meat, yo)





So the original recipe as posted on Rob Wolf’s site can be found here.

However, if you are following my instagram and followed by story, my recipe version is below.

Try to obtain all ingredients as grass-fed/non-gmo/organic when possible.

Beef Heart Chili

Servings – A lot of you eat like a bird. Not a lot if you are feeding teenage boys that play high school Texas football.



Beef Heart (Prior recipe calls for one pound – mine was at least two pounds – dice it pre-cook)

2 lbs Ground beef

1 Onion, chopped

4 small green bell peppers, chopped (about 2-3 cups?)

4 garlic cloves, minced

Chopped tomatoes (4 medium sized on the vine tomatos)

Bacon fat (or other fat or oil of choice)

Chili Powder


Pink Himalayan Salt


1/3 lb of cooked bacon


Instructions:  Dice beef heart into one inch-ish cubes and brown in bacon fat (yum). I also added a few grinds of pink himalayan salt and a couple of dashes of chili powder.  I used my 4 qt saute pan.  Set browned heart aside.  Add bacon fat to your main chili pot and heat. Add diced onion and bell pepper and saute for 3-5 minutes. Meanwhile, mince garlic.  Minced garlic should sit out on the board/plate/surface for 8-10 minutes – just trust me here.  You’re getting super nutrients doing this.  Add garlic and cook til onions and pepper are soft.  Add in ground beef. Add in more salt and chili powder, as well as a couple of dashes of coriander, and a dash of cinnamon.  Most of my recipes will involve cinnamon, so feel free to leave it out, but gosh it’s good in basically everything and will totally surprise you.  I judge spices by smell, but keep in mind spices should be added, simmered (2-3 minutes) in small doses.  Once the ground beef is browned, add in tomatoes and torn bacon (half an inch or so long, or really whatever your preference is).  The recipe linked above used canned — I like fresh, but also don’t like tomato paste or tomato-based sauces (white pizza all the way, dude).  Add beef heart back in and simmer all the delicious ingredients.  Eat when you can’t hold out anymore and refrigerate leftovers if you aren’t feeding teenage boys (and yes, teenage girls eat too, but they do so more discretely on occasion).  Eat real food!
