I highly recommend doubling up your batch so you have leftovers for meal prep! That means your lunch is covered for the next few days too!
➡️ For Meal-Prepping:
Divide your beef sweet potato mixture equally into 4 separate air-tight containers. I added 1/3 cup cooked brown rice to each serving.
Cover with lids and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
Makes 4 servings
- 1 Tbsp avocado oil, or olive oil
- 1-1/2 lbs lean grass fed ground beef, or ground turkey
- 2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
- 1 sweet onion, diced
- 2 red bell peppers, diced
- 2 medium sweet potatoes or yams, diced
- 1 cup frozen or fresh organic corn
- 1/2 cup beef broth
- 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
- 1/2 cup tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes
- 1 tsp of oregano
- 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste, about 1/4 teaspoon each
- fresh parsley, chopped
- cooked brown rice or quinoa, to prepare your meal prep bowls
Rinse and scrub your potatoes thoroughly to remove any dirt. Pat the excess moisture with a paper towel.
Chop your sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes and dice your peppers and onion.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add in garlic and sauté until fragrant.
Immediately add in your ground meat and cook, stirring well and breaking it apart with a wooden spoon until it is small crumbles. Cook until browned about 5-7 minutes. Once browned place the beef on a covered plate, and set aside.
Using that same skillet, add in onion, bell peppers and sweet potatoes; cook until slightly tender crisp.
Next, stir in your cooked ground meat and corn.
Pour in the broth, add Dijon mustard and tomato sauce. Cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes until potatoes are tender.
Add in oregano, crushed red pepper flakes, sea salt and black pepper to your taste.
Stir until everything is well combined. Cook for 2 minutes more until liquid is reduced a bit.
Taste test, and adjust seasonings to your preferences.
Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with cooked brown rice or quinoa.
