Sweet Potato Hamburger Skillet Dinner

A wonderful recipe for a quick healthy meal, I always try to create an easy one dish meal without a lot of fuss.

I don't eat red meat often, but when I do, I buy grass-fed beef. Grain-fed meat looks similar, tastes similar, and smells the same, but the truth is that grass-fed meat and grain-fed meat are two completely different foods. Grass-fed meat isn’t a luxury item – it’s real meat! Factory meat has the wrong fatty acids, contains obesity-causing hormones, and usually has mycotoxins and biotoxins formed by mold in cattle food and meat processing. Grass-fed meat is in a league of its own, but what it does have is nutrition.


1 medium organic sweet potato
8 ounces organic crimini mushrooms
1 pound organic grass fed hamburger
3 handfuls organic baby spinach
1/4 - 1/2 spring water
Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Place hamburger into a skillet over medium heat to lightly brown. Once browned, remove hamburger onto a plate.
  2. Scrub sweet potatoes with a veggie brush. Slice sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch by 1 inch pieces. Slice mushrooms into 1/2 inch slices.
  3. Place sweet potatoes in warm skillet after removing the hamburger. Don't worry about cleaning the pan in between, the oil and drippings from the hamburger will provide a wonderful richness to the sweet potatoes. Add about 1/4-1/2 cup of water to the pan and cover. Cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes or until the sweet potatoes begin to soften. Remove the lid and continue cooking until the water evaporates and sweet potatoes begin to caramelize.
  4. Return the hamburger to the pan along with spinach and mushrooms. Stir together and cook over medium heat until the spinach is wilted and mushrooms soften.
