Ground Beef Zucchini Tomato Recipe


This delicious recipe involves ground beef, zucchini, tomato, garlic and olive oil. Mix it all together and enjoy something low carb, healthy, and tasty! You can serve this with any salad or veggie side, but we took the photo with just the main dish.



Ingredients:
1 lb ground beef
1 small to medium zucchini diced to 1/2" to 3/4" cubes
1/2 cup mushrooms (diced as above)
1 plum tomato (diced as above)
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup tomato sauce
4 cloves garlic finely chopped
1-2 T olive oil

grated parmesan or romano cheese
shredded cheddar / mozzarella / "pizza cheese"

Get everything cut. Heat a large frying pan, sauce pan, or Wok on high heat. Start browning the ground beef. Once you have a nice sear on most of the meat, add in the zucchini, mushrooms and garlic. Sprinkle in a small amount of black pepper and salt. Mix and continue to cook for a couple minutes.

Add the water and plum tomato, then cover. Turn the heat down and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and olive oil. Mix it all up and continue to simmer for 5-10 minutes to reduce and thicken the mix. Optionally, you can add a bit of carb-free thickener to get a saucier result. This latter is preferred if you intend to serve this over a low-carb pasta.

Turn off the burner and let it settle for five more minutes to thicken a bit more. Easiest to serve in bowls, but plates work as well. Sprinkle your favorite grated and/or shredded cheeses over the top.
