Sweet Potato and Beef Hash


Prep Time

10 minutes

Prep Notes

If you haven’t cooked with grass-fed beef before, I wanted to mention a few helpful cooking tips. Since grass-fed beef is much lower in fat than conventional beef, it’s helpful to combine the beef with a bit of oil when cooking or add vegetables to the dish that will release moisture. In this case, you can use the bell pepper and onion for this purpose (as well as to add flavor). Grass-fed beef also cooks rather quickly so be careful not to overcook it as you don’t want to make it tough.

Cooking Time

25 minutes

Yields

4-6

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, diced
  • 1 pound local grass-fed ground beef
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon chile powder (optional)
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • Fresh basil, optional
  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Add coconut oil to a large skilled or pot over medium heat. Add the sweet potatoes and cook for about 10 minutes, flipping occasionally. Add the ground beef, bell pepper, onion, garlic, salt, cumin, paprika, oregano, and chile powder (if using). Continue cooking for another 10 - 15 minutes, until the potatoes are tender and slightly browned and the meat is cooked.
  2. Serve hot over a bed of arugula, topped with tomatoes, fresh basil (if using), and black pepper to taste.
