Beef and veggie casserole is a great way to treat your family to a healthier and delicious meal!
Looking for a satisfying meal that’ll fill you up and keep you eating healthier? Look no further!
When you try this beef and veggie casserole, you’ll see for yourself how easy it is to make and how great it is for filling you up. So give this veggie casserole with beef a try and watch it become your family’s go-to dinner!
Start off by preheating your oven to 375°F. You'll be using it to cook your casserole later, so having it ready for when the time comes will save you waiting around.
Meanwhile, cook your lean ground beef in a hot non-stick pan.
Once the beef is well cooked, drain it in a colander while you prepare your vegetables. You can also rinse the beef with hot water at this point.
In the same pan as before, add peppers, celery, and leeks. Sauté the vegetables as they cook before adding mushrooms and scallions. Let the vegetables cook until they're all tender.
Add the beef back into the pan for approximately thirty seconds to a minute, mixing well. Add in all dry spices, garlic, and parsley, mixing everything together and removing it from heat.
Spoon the mixture into a casserole dish and even out the surface by applying a bit of pressure with a spoon.
Make a small hole in the middle and pour an egg in before placing the casserole in the oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until the egg is fully cooked.
Ready to serve!
Did you know?
Lean ground beef often has between 26% and 27% protein content while keeping the fat content low, perfect for balancing nutritional needs with maintaining healthy energy levels. Beef is a complete protein, meaning it has all the essential amino acids your body needs, and is a great source of vitamin B12, a vitamin only available in animal-derived foods such as meat. You can also keep your iron levels up by eating red meats as a regular part of your diet. As part of a healthier diet, a beef and veggie casserole helps preserve and promote muscle mass – but you’ll still need to hit the gym to keep those muscles strong!
