Ground Beef Hash

This is a quick, healthy and economical meal. It is pretty tasty as well.

And all the ingredients are AIP-friendly, and suitable for the elimination stage as long as you don’t serve it with ketchup (Ketchup would be a stage 4 reintroduction because it contains tomatoes).

We eat this a lot for dinner, and there are usually some leftovers which are great for breakfast. Having said that, this would make a great breakfast all by itself.

I pulse the mushrooms in the food processor for this. It means that they are very finely chopped and are hidden by the ground beef so that J (the mushroom hater) can’t find them. They still provide the same amount of nutrition and also add to the flavour.

Ground Beef Hash
Serves 6-8


2lb ground beef (preferably grass-fed)
2 tbsp coconut oil (you could also use bacon fat, tallow or lard)
1 onion – chopped
2 sticks celery – chopped
8 oz mushrooms – finely chopped
1 large sweet potato – diced
5 cloves of garlic – crushed
1 cup bone broth
Sea salt to taste
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp dried thyme
1tbsp coconut aminos
1tbsp balsamic vinegar
1-2tbsp coconut flour
2 cups greens – chopped (kale, chard, spinach etc.)

Chop the onion, and celery finely. Pulse the mushrooms in the food processor until very finely chopped. Dice the sweet potato and crush the garlic.

Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet and add the onions. Sauté them until lightly caramelized. Add the mushrooms, celery and sweet potato and cook for 5 minutes. Add the ground beef and toss until browned.

Now add the herbs, sea salt, broth, coconut aminos and balsamic vinegar. Toss it all we’ll and allow to cook for 10 minutes until the sweet potatoes are tender. Add the coconut flour and greens and cook for 5 minutes until the greens are wilted.

Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary and serve at once.


We like to serve this with Paleo ketchup (this is a stage 4 reintroduction, I just don’t have the ketchup and everyone else does). As you can see, J likes hash with her ketchup…..
