  • 1 Tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 ½ Pounds Sirloin Steak, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • ½ Onion, diced
  • 6 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 Cup beef broth
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Cumin
  • 2 Tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 28 Ounces Canned fire roasted crushed tomatoes
  • 15 Ounces Canned black Soy Beans, drained and rinsed (or bean of choice)


  • Heat the oil in a large heavy bottom pot over medium-high heat. Stir in steak, season with salt and pepper, and cook steak until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove from the pot to a plate and set aside.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the chopped onion and garlic. Sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, beef broth, and spices. Scrape any browned bits from the bottom of the pan and cook the spices for a few minutes.
  • Stir in the already cooked steak, crushed tomatoes, and beans. Let simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Garnish with cheddar cheese and sour cream if desired.


  • Be sure to cut your steak into bite sized pieces for easier eating. No one wants to have to eat low carb chili with a fork and knife!
  • Use a large dutch oven so you can brown all of the meat in one or two batches. I like my large oval dutch oven for this.
  • Smoked paprika really gives an amazing flavor to this low carb steak chili. You can usually find it in most large grocery stores.
  • Add some cayenne pepper or diced jalapeño peppers for an extra kick.

Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Microwave according to the meal prep containers instructions.
