Sweet Potato, Apple, and Beef Skillet

This is something I literally threw together on a whim. Probably why we have the odd pairing of beef and apples in this recipe… Oh, well. It was tasty so it’s getting posted! 🙂

Sweet Potato, Apple, and Beef Skillet

Ingredients:

1 tbsp avocado oil

1 onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 sweet potato, peeled and cubed

1 lb organic, grass-fed ground beef

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp rosemary

1 tsp thyme

1/4 tsp chili powder

salt and pepper

1 apple, peeled and diced

Garnish: Shredded cheese and parsley

Directions:

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add in the onions and garlic and sauté until the onions begin to caramelize. Add in the sweet potatoes and cook for another 8 minutes. Add in the meat and seasonings and cook until the meat is completely brown. Make sure to break up the chucks of meat as it cooks! Afterwards, mix in your apple pieces and cook for another 5 minutes. If desired, top with shredded cheese and parsley before serving.

Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry (Paleo)

I really don’t know why I don’t eat more stir-fry for dinner. I really should since it makes for such a quick, filling, and satisfying meal. Plus, they’re so versatile! Not to mention, lunch leftovers for those busy school/work days that make all your friends jealous. Hmmmm, new fall resolution perhaps? Stir-fry at least once a week? Sounds like something I can most certainly stick to 🙂

Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry (Paleo)

Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry (Paleo)

Ingredients:

2 tbsp avocado oil

1 large onion, chopped

3 garlic gloves, minced

1 tbsp minced ginger

1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

salt and pepper

1 lb organic beef cubes, thawed 

1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets

2 eggs

salt and pepper

Optional: Cauliflower rice

Directions:

In a large and deep skillet, heat oil and add in onion, garlic, ginger, pepper flakes,  salt, and pepper. Let cook for 5 minutes, mixing occasionally. Add in beef cubes and cover with a lid. Let cook for another 5 minutes, lifting the lid halfway through to stir contents. Stir in broccoli, cover with lid, and cook for 10 minutes, again checking every few minutes to stir.

Meanwhile, scramble eggs in another pan. Once cooked fully, add in salt and pepper and chop into small pieces with your spatula.

Once the 10 minutes are up for your stir fry, turn off heat and mix in eggs. Adjust taste with salt and pepper. Serve over cauliflower rice, if desired.
