INGREDIENTS

Pie Filling:

  • 1 lb. grass-fed ground beef, lamb or bison
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dried rosemary or dried herb of choice
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 3 oz. organic tomato paste (about 6 Tbsp.)
  • 1/4 cup water

Sweet Potato Topping:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed (~5 cups cubed)
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil or ghee
  • 1/2 tsp chili powde
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375℉.
  2. In a skillet on medium heat, add the ground beef, chopped carrots, onions, peppers, mushrooms and minced garlic.
  3. Cook on medium heat until carrots are soft, about 12-15 minutes. Begin making the topping while the meat filling cooks.
  4. For the topping: Steam or bake (at 375℉) the sweet potatoes until fork tender. Then add all of the topping ingredients to a food processor (or blender) and process until smooth. NOTE: If using white potatoes, we recommend mashing them by hand rather than blending to prevent them from getting pasty.
  5. Final step: Transfer the meat filling to a casserole dish (9 x 9 inch dish will work) or 10 inch cast iron skillet and top the meat filling with the sweet potato mash. Dash with sea salt and chili powder.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and serve.

 

NOTES

To reheat if frozen: Remove from freezer and place in fridge the day before you plan to serve it. Simply reheat in the oven set at 375℉ for about 20-30 minutes or until center is hot (~165℉). You can reheat from frozen, it will however take a little longer. If reheating from frozen, cover with foil for the first 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake until center is hot (~165℉).

ENJOY 😉
