Beef and Bell Pepper Saute

Beef and Bell Pepper Saute
Another meal in the series of Atkins.com meal suggestions!  As a bit of an experiment I used the Atkins.com Customize-able Meal Planner and have been following it as closely as possible for my meals during the last week.  You can see my entire week of planned Induction meals HERE.

This was a very simple and yummy meal.  The original recipe calls for a red bell pepper but I used some defrosted frozen mixed peppers.  Either way is fine, depending on what you have available.  This is a recipe that I've actually made a couple of times since it's so easy and filling.  Nothing that is WOW worthy but a good basic meal. *INDUCTION FRIENDLY*

1 serving
5 net carbs per serving

5 ounces ground beef
1/4 cup chopped scallions
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper (or frozen mix)
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
salt & pepper to taste

Saute ground beef in skillet over medium high heat for 1-2 minutes.  Add scallions and bell pepper.  Saute until beef is browned and peppers are soft.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Drain grease if necessary.  Plate meal and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

  1. This looks like a yummy recipe. I love to have beef in my meals. I especially like beef steak with mushroom sauce. I will try this out for the dinner tonight. Thanks for sharing!
