Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 diced carrots
  • 1/2 diced white onion
  • 2 diced garlic cloves
  • 1 cup frozen green beans (or fresh, see notes)
  • 1/2 cup sliced white or cremini mushrooms
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/8 tsp ground cumin
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup beef broth or water (optional, see recipe)

Instructions

  • Brown the ground beef in a medium skillet, breaking it up with a large spoon as it cooks.
  • When just slightly pink, add the carrots, onion, garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Continue cooking for about 3 more minutes, then stir in the frozen green beans.¬†Cook for another 3 minutes, then add the sliced mushrooms.
  • Season with salt, pepper, oregano, and ground cumin.
  • Allow the mushrooms to heat through, for another minute or two. Check the green beans and carrots with a fork to make sure they are crisp-tender.
  • If the dish is too dry, add in 1/4 cup of beef broth or water and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed.

Notes

  • Use fresh green beans if you prefer. Add them to the skillet at the same time as the carrots.
  • Ground turkey can be substituted for beef.
