Here's a dish that'll quickly become your signature weeknight dinner. This one-pot Signature Skillet Supper, from Barbara Seeli-Brown's "Secrets of Healthy Cooking" cookbook is a family-favorite that you can change up just by switching up your veggies and protein!
What You'll Need
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 pound lean ground beef (93% lean)
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 cups frozen mixed vegetables
- 2 teaspoons togarashi (Japanese pepper blend)
- 3 cups uncooked no yolk medium noodles
- 4 cups low-sodium beef broth
- 1 -2 cups water
What to Do
- Place olive oil in large saute pan or skillet. Add beef, onions, and garlic and cook until beef is browned. Add vegetables and the seasoning, and mix well. Add the noodles and mix well. Add the broth and enough water to cover everything.
- Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook until noodles are tender, approximately 15 minutes.
Chef's Note: I love creating versatile recipes that you can tailor to your family’s preferences. Use this basic concept and vary the veggies and seasoning for a different taste each time you make this dish. This is also great because it’s a one-pot dish. I also recommend trying it with ground turkey or ground buffalo, which has almost no saturated fat.
Chef's Secret: Togarashi is a Japanese pepper blend. You can find it in Asian markets or online, or you can substitute any of your favorite mixed pepper blends.
