I am always trying to find creative ways to use ground meat. It’s a protein that I almost always have in the fridge because it’s so easy to cook at the last minute. The only issue with ground meat is that it can be boring… unless you spice it up! That’s exactly what I’ve done with this recipe.
My recipe for spicy sage ground beef and green beans is delicious on its own or served over rice or cauli-rice. If you’re eating it for breakfast, you can even top it with a fried egg (my favorite thing to do with leftovers!). And you can also of course use any ground meat in this dish.
Make this on a busy weeknight – it’s so simple, so flavorful and so good!

- Next, add the garlic and sage and sauté for 2 minutes.
