ground beef & sweet potato hash.

i promise i all my future recipes won't be sweet potatoes.

and this isn't fancy. but it's quick, easy, and healthy. and honestly, it was another win with these sweet potato skeptics and i don't want to forget how i made it. :)

ground beef & sweet potato hash
serves 4
adapted from here.

1 pound ground beef
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed (in small bite-sized pieces)
1 small onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced (i use the frozen trays from trader joe's)
two big handfuls of fresh spinach and arugula (or any leafy green such as kale, chard, etc.)
salt & pepper, to taste
2 tbsp butter, divided (either vegan, grassfed or ghee are fine)

heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. add ground beef, one clove of garlic, and salt and pepper and cook until meat is browned. transfer to a bowl and set aside.

in the same skillet, melt 1 tbsp. of the butter and add onions and another clove of garlic. sauté until onions are mostly transparent. transfer to a small bowl and set aside.

and again, in the same skillet, melt remaining butter and add the sweet potatoes, tossing to coat. cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes become soft (about 10 minutes). remove cover, add ground beef and onions and mix. then add the greens and the remaining clove of garlic. stir, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes, until the greens are wilted and the garlic is cooked.

serve and enjoy!
