If You Can Eat Meat

My mother made her famous meat and carrots meal whenever she was running late, which happened a lot.  It could have been one of those Rachel Ray under thirty minute meals – fast, easy, tasty.  I loved it – still do…You’ll need:

  • 1 lb. good quality ground meat (my mother would have the butcher – or the man behind the meat counter – grind up a filet – much to his dismay), but ground round will do.
  • a bunch of carrots, some garlic, and fresh Italian parsley
  • a sturdy iron skillet and some olive oil

Heat the skillet and then simmer sliced carrots with a little water to soften them. Drain the water and add extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) and 2 chopped cloves of garlic.  Add beef and brown over medium heat.  Add the chopped parsley last – after meat is mostly cooked.  Salt and pepper to taste.
