Step 8

Add half of the dried chili spices and all of the crushed garlic to the ground beef and onions, and stir well to combine.

Step 9

Add the gluten free beef broth and ensure you fully deglaze the bottom of the pot to prevent it burning later.

Step 10

Add the Crushed Fire Roasted Tomatoes on top of the meat, DO NOT STIR OR MIX, Tomatoes can stick to the bottom of your pot and sometimes prevent it from coming to pressure, so just let them sit on top of the meat mixture. (see note 3)
