SIBO-Friendly Beef Chili (Low FODMAP, GF, DF, SCD)
  • 1 T ghee, coconut oil, or other oil
  • 2 lbs beef stew meat (preferably grass-fed), cubed
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 1 cup green onion (green part only for low FODMAP), sliced
  • 26.46 ounce container chopped tomatoes (I used POMI)
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder (make sure to find one that does not contain garlic or onion)
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup water
  1. Add ghee or coconut oil to slow cooker / crock pot. Turn to low and allow slow cooker to preheat while you chop bell pepper and green onion.
  2. Add beef stew meat, bell pepper, green onion, POMI chopped tomatoes, spices, and water. Give chili mixture a good stir. Heat on low for 6 hours. Serve with any of the below optional toppings.
Optional Toppings:
Fresh Cilantro (SIBO friendly if you do not have issues with sulfur/high thiol foods)
Avocado, diced (generally not SIBO friendly due to FODMAP content- use with caution)
Zucchini Cheese- (SIBO friendly)- make ahead of time using this recipe
COYO Coconut Milk Yogurt or lactose-free yogurt (Green Valley Organics or White Mountain) if you tolerate dairy

Add-Ins to stretch recipe: do you have a large family? Or perhaps it is not realistic (or healthy) for others in your family to eat the way you do? No problem! You can make this recipe stretch by cooking up some beans and rice to go along with it or serving with a side of starchy veggies.
