The Tastiest Ground Beef

I haven’t had red meat in about a year, last time was when I was in South America visiting family so I was a bit apprehensive. But this was beyond delicious. It started as trying to create meatballs, and my failure turned into this flavorful delight.

Ingredients

1/2 zucchini, roughly chopped
1 onion, roughly chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 egg
2 TBS olive oil
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
pinch dried oregano
salt and pepper
1 lb organic ground beef
4 TBS organic tomato sauce

Directions

Place the first four ingredients in a food processor and pulse until finely grated. If you do not have a processor, mince the ingredients by hand. Pour into a bowl, add the egg, oil and spices. Mix thoroughly. Add the beef and incorporate all ingredients. Heat a skillet over medium heat, add beef mixture. Cook on low/medium low heat so the egg doesn’t scramble. Add tomato sauce and cook until completely cooked through, about fifteen minutes.

Enjoy!
