Chop up your Red Onion. Take out a large stove top pan that has a cover to it, put your cover off to the side, turn your burner on Medium Heat, add in your 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil, and then let it heat up. Once your pan heats up add in your Lean Ground Beef and brown it (while occasionally stirring/chopping it up). Remove from the heat and drain any juice that’s in your pan. Put your burner on High Heat, add in your Chopped Red Onion, and saute into your beef for 3:00-5:00 or until your onions are somewhat translucent. Put your burner on Low Heat and add in the rest of your ingredients. Mix everything together. Put the cover on and let your meat sauce cook for 15:00-20:00. Enjoy!


  • Put it over quinoa, rice, pasta, or even inside a burrito!
  • Use Lean Ground Turkey instead!

  • Tried this today and it was great! I put it over some roasted spaghetti squash and it was delicious and filling. Thanks for the recipe and keep up the good work!

    BTW, if you cook the beef first, you can use the drippings (tilt the pan so the “fat” goes to the bottom side and spoon out the beef) to cook the onion and garlic and not have to use the olive oil if you’re trying to keep fat down. I know it’s good fat, but it adds calories and if you’re cycling macros, sometimes you just don’t have much fat allowance in your numbers.
