Christmas is almost here and there will be no shortage of treats and delicious rich foods coming our way. Go ahead and enjoy those treats – it’s part of the fun of this time of year – but if you want to have some meals up your sleeve to balance the heavier meals, this beef and radish skillet is a great idea!
Have you ever heard of using radishes as a lower carb substitute for potatoes? This was my first time trying it and I really enjoyed it! The texture is a little different than a potato and it requires a little patience to give them time to get fully tender in the skillet, but they add some nice flavor and texture to this dish and makes it feel a lot more hearty.
Combining the radishes with some seasoned ground beef, big slices of carrots, and some cooked red onion and this is a great, easy dinner idea. Enjoy!
|Low Carb Beef and Radish Skillet|| |
- 1 lb 93% lean ground beef
- Salt and pepper
- 1 cup red onion, diced
- 1 lb radishes, washed and quartered
- 2 TBS tomato paste
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1 TBS Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup sliced carrots (can use frozen)
- 1 tsp ground oregano
- ½ tsp ground thyme
- Shredded cheddar and sour cream for topping, optional.
- In a large non-stick skillet, add the ground beef and season generously with salt and pepper. Cook on medium heat, breaking the beef into small crumbles as it cooks. When it is mostly done with just a bit of pink remaining (don't worry, it'll finish cooking later) remove the beef to a bowl or plate and set aside, reserving the grease in the skillet.
- Add the onions and radishes to the skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Add the tomato paste, broth, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, thyme, and the carrots. Mix well. Reduce heat to low, cover, and allow to cook for about 20 minutes or until the radishes start to get tender.
- Add the ground beef back to the pan, mix, and allow to cook, covered, for an additional 10-15 minutes or until radishes are fully tender and beef is finished cooking.
- Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. If the mixture looks a little dry, add extra beef broth.
- Serve as-is or with shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream.
