Ground Beef & Broccoli Curry

“One Pot Wonder” is the term we jokingly refer to in our home, when we reference this type of dish.  “What’s for dinner, Mom?”  I reply, “Oh, just a one pot wonder.”  What’s the definition of this term?  Hmm…usually a very simple week night meal, that includes everything in one pot, skillet, dish, slow cooker, etc.  Meat, vegetables and probably some kind of starch are all included.  The only thing missing would be the bread – unless you’ve made dumplings or a pot pie!  It may be simple, not at all fancy, but it’ll be tasty and comforting, and the clean-up will be a breeze!

Recipe by:  Designs by Jeanne R

Ingredients:

1 lb. ground beef, browned & drained

4 small potatoes, peeled & cubed

8 oz. frozen broccoli

1 medium onion, chopped

1/2 cup red, orange or yellow bell peppers, diced

1/2 cup Greek yogurt, or plain yogurt

1/2 teaspoon curry powder

1/2 teaspoon ground mustard seed

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)

ground black pepper to taste

Directions:

I didn’t use any oil to cook the beef or vegetables.  I cooked the potatoes & onions in the microwave, & I steamed the broccoli & peppers in a skillet (with a lid) & a little water.  The meat was browned in a little water to keep it from sticking.  After everything was drained, I tossed the meat, potatoes, & half the vegetables, seasonings, and yogurt all together.  Top with the remaining vegetables for a more colorful, fresher look.

Serve warm.

Recipe Notes:

My guys sprinkled a little soy sauce on top.  Tasty!

I’m probably one of the last “hold-outs” to switch over to Greek yogurt, but I’ve been really trying to use it as a substitute for otherwise calorie rich ingredients such as oils, cheese, or cream. You’ll be seeing more of this as an ingredient, as I’m learning to incorporate it more and more.

Thanks for stopping by!  If you have any good ideas for using Greek or plain yogurt, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
