Meal Prep: Beef with Sweet Potatoes and Green Beans

The original meal calls for a homemade BBQ sauce but I prefer ketchup, which adds 10 grams of carbohydrates. A low-carb ketchup would be better if I can find one. They also used bison/kangaroo which is leaner, but I just use lean beef.

Yield: 6 meals

Ingredients:

  • 1½ pounds sweet potatoes/yams (about 2 large)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt/pepper/seasoning
  • 1¼ pounds green beans
  • 2 pounds lean beef (93/7)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • ¾ cup ketchup

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dice sweet potatoes into 1-inch squares. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper, and any other seasoning you like. Stir to coat and then bake on silicone-lined baking sheet for 30 minutes.
  2. Clean and trim the green beans, and steam them for 15 minutes. Shock them in ice water to maintain color.
  3. Mix up all the beef ingredients thoroughly, then form into 12 90-gram patties (they will be soft, use patty paper to keep them separate!). Heat the coconut oil on medium-high heat, then cook off the patties in batches, about 3 minutes on each side.
  4. Divide into 6 containers, each containing 2 beef patties, 100 grams of sweet potatoes, and 60 grams of green beans. Serve with 2 tablespoons ketchup.
