Place a large pot on your stove over medium-high heat. Add in some Vegetable Oil (to taste) , Yellow Onion (1) , Garlic (2 cloves) and cook for a couple of minutes or until the onions start to soften slightly.
Step 2
Next add in the Ground Beef (2.2 lb) and break it down using a wooden spoon. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the meat has browned.

Step 5
Raise the heat back up to medium and continue to gently stir until almost all the liquid has been absorbed. Turn off your heat. Season at this point with Salt and Pepper (to taste) .
