Cowboy Stew

{Recipe from Internal Bliss Cookbook}

This stew is so delicious! Using your homemade stock makes it so flavorful. Dieter loves "mamburger" so he was picking it out of the soup. He thought the soup should have had more meat and less vegetables :)

2-3 Tbsp Ghee
1 qt Beef Broth
1 Onion, chopped
2 Tomatoes, chopped
1 tsp Salt
2-3 Cloves of Garlic, crushed
1 Green Bell pepper, chopped
1 Red Bell pepper, chopped
1 Annaheim or Poblano Pepper, chopped
1 large Yellow Summer Squash or 1 medium Zucchini, chopped
1-2 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Oregano
1-2 tsp Chili Powder (optional)
1 lb ground Buffalo or Ground Beef
1/2-1 cup chopped Cilantro, loosely packed (optional)

-Saute the onions in the ghee until they begin to soften. Add garlic and stir.
-Add spices and salt, and stir. Add the chopped peppers and yellow squash and saute for 5 minutes, or until they soften. Add a little broth if the vegetables start to dry.
-Add the meat and keep stirring to break up the meat. Once the meat begins to brown, pour in the stock and add the tomatoes. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer. Cover pot and let simmer for 30 minutes.
-Once finished, remove the heat and stir in cilantro if desired. Adjust seasonings to taste if needed.
