    4 Servings


  • 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1/2 pound Lean Ground Beef, 93%
  • 1/2 cup Onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic, minced
  • 1 cup Low-Sodium Beef Broth, plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1 14.5 ounce can Petite Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Tomato Paste

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, high sided pan on medium/high heat. Add in the beef, onion and garlic. Cook, breaking up the beef, until full cooked and no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes

  5. Garnish with extra pickles, if desired and DEVOUR
