Recipe: Beef and Broccoli Stuffed Sweet Potatoes


  • 4 (8-oz.) sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup chopped red onion
  • 3/4 cup drained and chopped bottled roasted red bell peppers
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 10 ounces 90% lean ground sirloin
  • 2 cups frozen steam-in-bag broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions

How to make it:

Step 1: rub sweet potatoes with 1 1/2 teaspoons oil; pierce several times with a fork. Microwave at high 12 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Step 2: heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil; swirl to coat. Add onion and red bell peppers; cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Add garlic, and cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, cumin, and ground red pepper. Add beef; cook 6 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble.

Step 3: heat broccoli according to package directions; stir into beef mixture. Partially split potatoes lengthwise; fluff the flesh with a fork, (if keto, scoop out half and save for another meal.) Top potatoes evenly with beef mixture, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and green onions.
