what our readers think

– avocado oil or olive oil – onion – lean ground beef – garlic – paprika – dried oregano – sea salt – black pepper – coconut milk – tomato sauce – all-purpose flour – elbow noodles


Cook the noodles according to the package instructions. Once the noodles are fully cooked (but still al dente), drain them in a colander, rinse them with cold water, and set them aside until ready to use.


Heat the avocado oil in a large thick-bottomed pot (I use my Dutch oven) over medium-high heat. A very large skillet will work too. Add the onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 to 6 minutes.


Transfer the ground beef to the pot, brown beef, and use a spatula to break it into smaller chunks.


Stir in the garlic, paprika, oregano, salt, and black pepper.


Pour the canned coconut milk and the tomato sauce into the pot and bring everything to a full boil.
