You know when you get so busy that you forget to plan dinner...whoops..
So last week I lost three days of my life that I will never get back again cleaning our two younger boys room...There were many snack breaks, and 'go run around the yard' breaks for them, but after a while you can't ignore that it's dinner time! I usually plan, and defrost ahead of time, and today I just didn't. It hit me around 5:00 that I needed to act quickly.
This is a easy skillet meal that is sure to satisfy you and your family! I threw this together in minutes, and it was super filling! I would also say that you could serve this together for any vegetarian family and friends! As a Mom, feeding my family something quick and nourishing like this makes me feel so much better than calling in for takeout! I also cut down on the meat by adding TONS of veggies! I love meat, but grass fed beef is expensive...I am trying to experiment with meals that use less!
1 pound of grass fed beef
1 small head of cabbage, shredded and core removed
1 pound of carrots shredded
2 bell peppers sliced
1 small onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon of fresh ginger
1 tablespoon of coconut aminos
1/4 cup of black olives
coconut oil as needed, possibly a few tablespoons, depending on fat in beef
First brown your beef in a big cast iron skillet..OH! Did I mention? ONE PAN to wash! YEAH!
So, when your beef is browned, add the veggies, all except the ginger! You basically are stir frying this, and if you need more fat add coconut oil to it! I kept sauteing this until the cabbage and carrots were cooked and then I added the garlic and the aminos! You could stop here, but my kiddos ate this with leftover rice..and I scrambled an egg into mine!
So simple and yummy!
