When I'm in a hurry for a meal lately, I've been turning to this super simple recipe that is easy to make ahead and stores/reheats really well. I've been eating it for breakfast, but it also works well for any other meal as well! You can make it PFC balanced by adding avocado or olives on top for some additional healthy fats! Plus, like most of my recipes, it is super customizable depending on your tastes and preferences.
Beef & Brussels Skillet
1lb Ground Beef
1lb Brussel Sprouts (or buy them preshredded!)
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1-2 Tsp Sea Salt
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the coconut oil
Slice the Brussel sprouts and add to the pan along with 1 tsp salt
Cook covered, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes
Add the ground beef and remaining 1 tsp salt
Continue to cook covered, stirring occasionally to break up the ground beef
Once the meat is cooked through and the Brussel sprouts are tender
Serve immediately or cool and store for later use
You can also easily double this recipe (I always do!).
Switch it up:
Use any ground meat or a combination of your favorites: ground pork, ground pork + beef, ground chicken (not 99% lean), or ground turkey (not 99% lean). Oh and a friendly reminder, if you are choosing the ground turkey or chicken because you think it's healthier than ground beef, just remember red meat, saturated fat, and cholesterol won't kill us! They have tons of nutrients (especially B vitamins) that makes it a superior choice.
