– avocado oil – yellow onion – ground beef – garlic
Heat the avocado oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, until the onion has softened, about 5 to 8 minutes.
Add the ground beef to the center of the skillet and brown for 2 minutes per side before breaking it into smaller pieces with a spatula. Stir in the garlic and cook until the ground beef is mostly cooked through.
While the onion and beef is cooking, chop the bell peppers and transfer them to the crock pot along with the rice.
Transfer the onion and beef mixture to the crock pot with the veggies.
Pour the crushed tomatoes, chicken broth, tomato paste, dried parsley, sea salt, and black pepper into the crock pot.
