Ever had one of those nights you just threw some stuff in a pot and it turned out pretty good? This is how I made my turkey-veggie skillet dinner. Give it a try!
I really enjoy cooking, but a lot of times I don't have a clue what I'm going to make, or what I'm making as I go. Mitch and I call it "shaking a pot", as in "I'm hungry why don't you go shake a pot?" Tonight I shook a skillet and the end result was pretty good! It's (almost) Paleo, but only for those paleo-ers like Mitchy and me who allow cheese and butter sometimes. There's really not a lot of cheese in it, and you could completely leave it out. Before I forget what I did, let me try to write it down, and you could try it too! (So many times Mitch will enjoy a meal I've prepared and I forget how to do it again.)
Ingredients: (Can be easily doubled.)
1 slice bacon
1/4 onion chopped
1/2 small bell pepper
1/2 lb ground Turkey (or you could use beef)
1 small bunch of fresh spinach
1/2 can Rotel tomatoes with diced green chilies
2 small white potatoes
1/2 cup water
1 tsp coconut flour
1 oz cheddar cheese
salt to taste
Adobo seasoning to taste
liquid smoke to taste
Okay, this is what I did:
I sliced up the bacon and Cooked it in the Skillet (on low) with the onion for about 2-3 minutes, then I added the bell pepper. After that cooked for a couple of minutes I added the turkey, and seasoned with Adobo. (I always season ground turkey with Adobo.) After the turkey got almost cooked through, I added the Rotel and let that cook for a couple minutes. Then, I took some kitchen shears and cut up the spinach in the dish. While the Rotel had made it watery, I went ahead and added some freshly ground pink Himalayan salt, so it would dissolve in the hot water. (It can get to where its too coarse and doesn't dissolve, making a not so tasty crunch in your mouth.)
While that was all melding together for a few minutes I sliced up the potatoes in thin slices as you see in the photo. I added the potatoes on top, and then I covered the skillet and left it on low for a good 15 minutes. Then I stirred the potatoes into the rest of the mix and covered them and let them sit a few minutes again. Then I added a few shakes of liquid smoke. I may have added a little much, so remember be frugal with it. Lastly, I mixed the coconut flour into the water and poured it into the skillet. I stirred the meat and veggies aside and grated the cheese right into the hot liquid so it would melt. Then stir everything together and done!
Around here a dish is good if it's a "make again". I'll definitely have to make this one again. I wonder what Mitch will say.
