Ground Beef and Sirloin Steak are two protein staples that can help you get dinner on the table in no time! Have twenty minutes? Then you can make dinner with these two 20 minute meal ideas!
Spring has SPRUNG friends, and that means the last few weeks have been packed with school, practices, and appointments for the kids, and work, chauffeuring, and doing a LOT on the fly [or go?!] for Mom. I realize this is just a stage or moment in time in our life, but guys, I dread making dinner after practice. Heck, I’ve been kinda dreading making dinner the past few years!!!! Kidding. But some days I just don’t want to do it…
Sure, we all need more time, an extra set of hands, maybe a body double?! Highly unlikely that any or all of the above will happen. SO, what then?
Give me 20 minutes, and I’ll give you 2 meal ideas! No, really. Both of these meal ideas take about 20 minutes or less to make [maybe a little more than 20 if you want the chili to simmer longer]. I’m all about the no-recipe, recipe meal ideas AND some weekly produce prep to save both time and money. Combine those two concepts and you have HOW I created these two simple meal ideas: skillet chili with extra veggies + steak salads with extra veggies. Guess what guys? The extra veggies are both the salad and the chili. Double kitchen-duty! Enough of my chit-chatting, let’s get to the food.
20 Minute Meal Ideas
Farmer’s Market Skillet Chili
The cast of characters: 1 lb. Ground Beef, 1 teaspoon chili powder, ½ teaspoon oregano, ½ teaspoon cumin, 3-4 cups marinara sauce, ½ cup veggies like green beans, kale, green onion, peas, etc. Serve with fresh tomatoes, shredded cheese, hot sauce, and sour cream. Cooked like a skillet chili would be cooked- all in the same skillet/pan!
Take a bagged salad to the next level by topping it with sliced Sirloin Steak, and adding additional toppings. Here are some of my favorite ways to jazz-up that bagged salad mix!
