Paleo Chili Beef

This Paleo Chili Beef Bolognese recipe is a little different to most bolognese recipes. The key ingredient to the sauce is some ground turmeric  You can normally find turmeric in Indian curries & is known to have many anti oxidant & anti inflammatory properties. In this Paleo recipe I have used a can of chopped tomatoes but if you can & have time it would be much better to use fresh tomatoes to make your own tomato sauce.
