Ground Beef Tacos with Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Author: Julia
For the Ground Beef:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 red bell pepper cored and chopped
  • 1 pound lean grass-fed beef
  • 1.5 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt to taste
Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Cabbage Slaw:
  • 3 cups red cabbage shredded
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt to taste
For the Tacos:
  • grain-free tortillas
  • 1 avocado peeled and sliced
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 batch Paleo Sour Cream & Onion Dip (for the "queso")
Make the Spiced Ground Beef:
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion turns translucent and begins to brown, about 5 to 8 minutes.

  2. Add the garlic and bell pepper and continue cooking until bell pepper begins to brown, about 5 minutes.

  3. Add the beef, seasonings and sea salt, breaking up the beef into desired sized chunks. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beef is cooked through, about 5 to 8 minutes.

Roast the Sweet Potato:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Spread the chopped sweet potato on a large baking dish and drizzle with oil and sprinkle with chili powder and sea salt. Use your hands to toss everything together until the sweet potato chunks are well-coated in oil and seasoning.

  3. Roast 25 to 30 minutes, turning half-way through, or until golden-brown and soft on the inside.

Cabbage Slaw
  1. Add ingredients for the cabbage slaw to a medium-sized mixing Bowl. Massage the cabbage assertively with your hands until it begins to soften, about 3 minutes. Taste for flavor and add more sea salt to taste. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Make the Tacos:
  1. Heat the grain-free tortillas on the stove-top (or in a microwave). Load them up with desired amount of spiced ground beef, roasted sweet potatoes, avocado, cabbage slaw, tomatoes, green onion, queso fresco, and cilantro. Enjoy!
