Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt, divided

Cashew Cheese Sauce

  • 1 cup raw, unsalted cashews
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1.5 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Equipment

  • 12 inch skillet

Instructions
 

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ground beef and 1/2 tsp of salt and cook for 5-7 minutes, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you stir. Remove the cooked ground beef using a slotted spoon and set it aside on a plate.
  • Add the onions, peppers, mushrooms, minced garlic, remaining 1/2 tsp salt, garlic powder, and onion powder to the same pan. Saute for 7-10 minutes until they are softened and starting to brown.
  • While the veggies are cooking, combine the cheese sauce ingredients in a high powered blender*. Blend for 1-2 minutes until the sauce is very smooth and creamy.
  • Add the ground beef back into the pan with the veggies and stir everything together for 1-2 minutes. Serve drizzled with cheese sauce and enjoy!
  • You can serve this as-is...or feel free to serve this on top of cauliflower mash, mashed potatoes, in a baked potato, and on top of a salad!

Notes

*I suggest soaking the cashews in hot water for at least 30 minutes prior to draining, rinsing, and blending. This will help to ensure a smooth and creamy sauce. 
You can also sub in regular cheese if you tolerate dairy! Simply add it at the end and let it melt on top of the beef and veggies. It will still be keto!
