Cheeseburger Macaroni - GF

I found this recipe on-line and modified it to my dietary needs and what I actually had in the house. ;)

Ingredients: (to the best of my recollection)
1/4 cup (4 TBS) coconut oil
1 onion, diced
3/4-1 lb grass fed ground beef

Paste Mix:
4 TBS Beef gelatin
1 TBS mustard
2 oz tomato paste
2 oz ACV
4 TBS cane sugar/cream of tartar mix
Salt to taste...I think I used a tsp... or maybe 2?

2.5 cups water
2 cups rice pasta (elbow, penne, etc)

8 oz Munster or other white cheese, cubed

  1. In a LARGE skillet (I over flowed mine a few times due to the slope in my stove top), brown the onions and burger in the coconut oil.
  2. Mix the paste ingredients together and add to skillet.
  3. Add water and bring to boil.
  4. Add pasta of choice.
  5. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until desired tenderness.
  6. Turn off burner and add small chunks of cheese of choice. I chose Munster because it's a semi-soft cheese that dissolves easily.  It was either that or pepper jack.  I just broke pieces off.
  7. Serve when cheese is thoroughly blended.

P.S.  I just read the instructions of the original recipe again.  I didn't drain the meat juices or cover while cooking the noodles. I don't know if the out come would be any different or not.
