Beef and Broccoli with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Prep time: 10 min • Cook time: 40 min • Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, optional
  • 1 tablespoon plus, 1 teaspoon coconut oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sweet potatoes, olive oil, garlic powder, and cinnamon (if desired). Mix well so that the potatoes are completely covered in oil and spices.
  3. Place the potatoes in a 9-x-13-inch baking dish and arrange in a single layer. Bake for 30-minutes, turning the mixture once. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil in a large skillet until it's liquid and shimmering. Add the garlic, onion, salt, pepper, and chili powder. Cook until the onions are soft.
  5. Add the beef to the onions and garlic, breaking up the beef as it browns. Drain the excess fat; remove the beef from the skillet and set aside.
  6. Add the remaining coconut oil to the skillet and heat until the oil is liquid and shimmering. Add the broccoli to pan and cook until it's bright green.
  7. Add the cooked beef and the sweet potatoes to the broccoli, mix well, and heat through. Serve immediately.
