3 tablespoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups water
1. Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat; drain off the fat.
2. Using a fork, crumble the cooked beef into pea-size pieces.
3. In a large pot, combine the beef plus all the remaining ingredients, and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cook, stirring every 15 minutes, for 2 to 3 hours.

Tidbits: For spicier chili, add 1/2 teaspoon more black pepper. For much spicier chili, add 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and a tablespoon of cayenne pepper. And for a real stomach stinger, add 5 or 6 sliced jalapeno peppers to the pot. Leftovers can be frozen for several months.
Ham Steaks are great! Loaded with protein and low in FAT! You can pair them with some grilled pineapples or soother with sauteed peppers and onions. There quick & easy and store for a while in the fridge. You can also add the ham to a pot of split pea soup!

Calamari & Shrimp In Red Sauce
- In a saucepan, combine tomato sauce, red wine, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, black pepper, cayenne pepper, basil, and cheese. Simmer on medium low for about 30 minutes to give the alcohol in the wine time to evaporate, and all the flavors time to blend.
- Add the calamari to the sauce. Continue to slowly simmer for about another 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Calamari is done when it is plump. Do not cook on higher heat or for a longer period, as calamari is famous for becoming rubbery. Leave out the pasta!

Cook a boneless roast pork in the pressure cooker for 8 hours you can add a cut up onion if you want my kids don't like it so I left it out but you can even put a whole onion for taste and just pull it out at the end. Put enough water to cover the roast, add to the water, 1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce, 4 splashes soy sauce and a splash of Worcestershire sauce and cook for 7 hours, 1 hour before your ready to eat take it out and pull it apart with 2 forks and drain all the water. If you have onions save the onions then return back into the crook pot add a nice amount of your BBQ sauce with a nice big spoon of duck sauce mix and cook for 1 hour, occasionally stirring. I promise perfection! Serve with baked beans and corn!
