Default Re: Go to recipes with ground beef!

This is something I made up a few years ago and it's a family favorite...This is the amount I make for 7 people, the seasoning/sauce would be fine but you might want to reduce the honey to 1TBSP and Balsamic Vinegar to 1/8 cup if you are going with just a couple cups of brussel sprouts.



1-2lbs ground beef
1.5-2 lbs brussel sprouts (I get and use the big bags from Sam's or Costco)
chopped onion (optional)
2-3 cloves of garlic minced
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic

2 TBSP honey
1/2tsp Italian herbs
1 tsp salt



1. Brown ground beef with onion (optional)

2. while that's going chop all the brussel sprouts in half or quarters if the brussel sprouts are huge.

3.When the beef is mostly cooked add some extra olive oil (just drizzle it around) and throw brussel sprouts and garlic in and saute for 2-3 minutes on medium heat.

4. in small bowl mix together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, herbs and salt.

5. Drizzle over brussel sprouts and beef mixture and toss in pan until well mixed. Toss for another 2 minutes.

6. Turn heat to low and Cover. Cook for 5-6 minutes (lifting lid and stirring once or twice). Brussel sprouts should be soft enough to easily be speared by fork. Give a bit more time covered if they aren't easy to spear yet.



Serve over rice or as a side with baked sweet potato and butter.
