Ground Beef Stir Fry

Ground beef is one of my favorites meats to cook on busy weeknights. It’s so easy to make and inexpensive, even grass-fed! I am always trying new ways to make ground beef exciting and this stir fry is one of my favorite ways. 


If you have checked out any of my other recipes, you already know how much I love turmeric. I love the earthy taste, color, and most of all, the amazing health benefits! I added turmeric in this stir fry to give it a healthy boost. If you are not a big fan of how turmeric tastes, then this recipe is perfect for you since the other flavors in the stir fry cover up the turmeric flavor. If you’re interested in learning more about turmeric’s health benefits, I explain more in my recipes for Super Healing Bone Broth Drink and Turmeric Chicken and Kale Zoodle Soup.
