Spicy & Beefy Beans & Zucchini

There are just too many food to avoid these days...let me scare you with some of these:
- Beef =
mad cow
- Fish/seafood = mercury exposure
- Fried food = cancer
Recent Hong Kong food scare:
- Chicken =
Avian Flu H5N1
- Tomato = salmonella

I can't believe it!!! Not my beloved, trusted, innocent TOMATOES!!!...Gosh, do I really need to consider going nothingarian? I bet I won't even five minutes being one...

...so...what the heck! I am already a mad cow anyway, let's have something beefy for dinner...and lemme throw in some tomatoes as well for a good measure LOL!!

Spicy & Beefy Beans & Zucchini
- 0.5 pound beef brisket
- 3 zucchini (peel skin off, cut into chunky pieces)
- 1 can of kidney beans
- 1 can of tomato paste (ok! I chickened out!)
- half bulb of garlic, crushed

- 2 red chilli (I wanted it spicy, so I kept the seeds, just finely chop the chilli)
- olive oil, butter
- salt, black pepper, sugar, parsley

Boil beef brisket for a while to get rid of the excess fat, set aside. Saute garlic and chilli in olive oil and butter, add beef brisket, add tomato paste, cook for 1.5 hours. Add beans and zucchini, cook until zucchini's done but still crunchy. Season with salt, sugar, black pepper, sprinkle parsley, serve over rice/pasta.

PS. Beware of this failed-nothingarian mad cow. She bites.
