1 pound beef
1 medium onion
1 clove garlic
24 ounces tomato sauce
2 tablespoons Chili Powder
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt

Preparation / Directions:

Brown beef with onion and garlic. Drain fat. Add remaining ingredients and simmer 20 minutes. (3 or 4 hours is not too long, the longer you simmer the better, however, it smells so good, you can't wait any longer) Stir occasionally. Gebhardts is the ORIGINAL recipe used by the Texas cowhands. Others have tried to duplicate it, to no avail. You can taste the difference. Note: there are NO beans and NO HOT peppers added. If it's authentic you want - this it! It can be served with chopped onions, cheddar cheese, crackers, tostados, bread, etc. Just think, what would have been available on a cattle drive in the middle of the plain
