What Can I Substitute for Ground Beef

You are welcome to use ground turkey or even ground pork or chicken. Just make sure to fully cook your meat and then toss in all the veggies. 

We love ground beef in our home but I am sure any other ground meat will be pretty tasty as well.

How to Make Garden Vegetable Beef Skillet

In a skillet, you will want to cook your ground beef and diced onions until meat is no longer pink. 

Mix in your veggies and spices and cook for around another ten minutes or until vegetables are to your tenderness preference.

Can You Cook Ground Beef and Vegetables Together

You will want to cook your ground beef up first. I tend to cook my onions at the same time and once the beef is fully cooked and onions are tender I toss in the other ingredients. 

While it is safe to cook ground beef and vegetables together, I find the texture of the veggies are so much better if they cook for a less amount of time. 

If you prefer a more tender veggie then you can toss it all in at once and cook together. You will find the veggies will break up a bit more than if you tossed and stirred at the end. 

How to Store Leftover Garden Vegetable Beef Recipe 

You can toss the mixture in an airtight container and then store it in the fridge for up to three days. The ground beef is what will make this go bad faster. If you did this with just vegetables it would store for up to five days.

Does Garden Vegetables and Beef Freeze 

You will find that the veggies will break down quite a bit when they thaw from being frozen. I recommend only making what you think you will eat before it goes bad. It is great for meal prepping for a few meals, but it just doesn’t freeze well. 

Can I Double this Skillet Ground Beef Recipe

Absolutely. If you are wanting to make a larger batch, just make sure your pan can hold the contents! Just cook up the meat and onions and then toss in the rest and cook until ready to serve.

What To Serve With This Ground Beef Recipe 

  • Dinner Rolls or homemade bread
  • Side Salad or Chopped Salad
  • Pasta salad or cold salad recipe 

As you can see the sky is the limit. Most of the time this is a meal in one for us. But, on occasion, I will whip up a side or two to pair with it. Feel free to add whatever sides you enjoy the most if you want more than just this.
