About half of the recipes that I make are things that I see and think sound absolutely strange. Whereas most people wouldn’t think twice about them, I for some reason am drawn to these types of recipes and they often end up being some of my favorites.
Tonight’s dinner was one of those. I had to try it because when I originally came across the recipe on Everyday Paleo I thought, “Who would think to put green olives, beef, kale and cumin together? That’s either really awesome or really disgusting”.
1 lb grass fed ground beef
1 bunch kale chopped
1 white onion sliced
1/2 of a green, red, and yellow bell pepper sliced
1/2 cup pimento stuffed green olives
3 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tbsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp dried oregano
Pinch of saffron threads (optional)
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
3 sweet potatoes
In a large skillet saute onion and bell pepper until soft, about 5 minutes. Add ground beef and brown, then add all spices and mix well. Add the kale and green olives, continue cooking stirring often until the kale is tender (about 4-5 minutes). Serve over mashed sweet potatoes.
I actually really really liked this recipe, its definitely not something I would have ever thought to put together on my own. The flavors worked well together though, it was quick and its colorful. Win/Win/Win.
