This is one of my go-to dishes during the week when I visit my Mama J for dinner.
It’s super quick and simple to whip up, loaded with heart healthy omega 3’s from grass-fed beef and booming with antioxidants from the dark leafy greens.
The simple flavours of garlic, lemon and basil add so much character to this dish making it absolutely delicious.
Warning! This dish is shockingly filling for a salad.

INGREDIENTS: (serves 2)
1 lb grass-fed ground beef
1/2 lemon (juice only)

1 tsp. dried basil

Sea salt and black pepper to taste
1. Add ground beef and lemon juice to pan. Break a part meat as you cook over medium heat.
2. When beef is 3/4 done add garlic, basil, salt and pepper Continue cooking until meat is browned.

I like to top this dish with broccoli sprouts if I have them on hand.
