I love to cook and I make almost all of our meals from scratch. Some days I enjoy spending hours in the kitchen, but some days I want to get in and get out! Especially in the summer months when the days are long and I can head out for a walk or bike ride after dinner.

I never want to skimp on taste or nutrition, so I get creative and make a “skillet meal”. That means everything in one pan with dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes. Today I’m going to share with you one of our favorite skillet meals – Ground Beef with Kale and Mushrooms.

The trick to getting this meal done quickly is keeping a well-stocked freezer and spice cabinet.

I always have ground beef from our local farmer in the freezer as well as lots of bags of frozen organic vegetables. The night before I plan to make this dish, I will grab the beef from the freezer to let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight. I don’t even bother thawing the vegetables, but you could grab those too while you are in the freezer!

What’s the best way to up the flavor ante for any dish? Spices! I use garlic powder and onion powder in many of my savory dishes, as I did with this one. Here I also wanted just a slight amount of heat, so I toss in a little cayenne and crushed red pepper. It’s not overly spicy, but gives the dish just a little kick!

Ground Beef with Kale and Mushrooms is perfect for dinner but also tastes great warmed up for breakfast or lunch the next day. I often grab leftovers for breakfast just to give myself a break from eggs or smoothies! I keep a hotplate at work to re-warm dishes like these for a healthful, filling lunch.

Ground Beef with Kale and Mushrooms is a quick, one pan meal that is on the table in under 30 minutes and is also Paleo! // deliciousobsessions.com
