Ingredients

  • 10 oz. 300 g ground beef
  • 3 oz. 75 g butter
  • 9 oz. 250 g broccoli
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ cup 125 ml mayonnaise or crème fraîche (optional)

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Rinse and trim the broccoli, including the stem. Cut into small florets. Peel the stem and cut into small pieces.
  2. Heat up a hearty dollop of butter in a frying pan where you can fit both the ground beef and broccoli.
  3. Brown the ground beef on high heat until it is almost done. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Lower the heat; add more butter and fry the broccoli for 3-5 minutes. Stir the ground beef every now and then.
  5. Season the broccoli. Top with the remaining butter and serve while still hot. It's also delicious to serve with an extra dollop of crème fraiche or mayonnaise.

Tip!

This strict keto dish can be cooked with other low-carb vegetables like zucchini, asparagus, green beans and spinach. Feel free to flavor with your favorite spice – chili and paprika powder, some herbs or onion powder all add flavor!

    What do you do with the mayonnaise or creme freche (if you decide to use it)?

    I prefer twice as much vegetables.

    it says "optional" i'm guessing you would mix it in after it has finished cooking... just for creaminess.

    Heating butter on high torches it. Is this acceptable?

    It's no very clear if you use some of the mayonnaise & cream while cooking, or just after. The word "extra" confuses me

    When it says "4 1/2" ounces broccoli, is that on a food scale? Or in a measured cup? There is a big difference! The cup is way smaller :)

    Thanks,
