Ground Beef With Peas and Carrots
Ground beef with peas and carrots sounds so simple, but the flavor of this dish is amazing. It is truly delicious, has a 5 minute prep time and can be on the table within 3o minutes. That’s pretty much perfection in my book :)
This one is an all around winner with the whole family. I first found the recipe on Eat Nourishing, a website featuring user submitted recipes that are made with real foods. The recipe was originally submitted by Molly of Organic Spark.
I know it’s not corned beef, but I think that this would make a delicious dinner for Saint Patrick’s Day paired with some whole wheat guinness bread.
Do you have a traditional meal that you serve for Saint Patrick’s Day?
