This recipe has been floating around in our recipe binder for 5 years. I make it every so often and I’m always surprised at how easy it is and how much my family enjoys it. Travis said it was one of his favorite meals. I will have to remember that when I am trying to lure him home from college πŸ™‚ The original recipe was from Family Circle magazine, but we have made several modifications. I usually serve it with egg rolls or pot stickers, perfect for a speedy meal!

In a large skillet or pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add beef to skillet and cook for 6 minutes or until no longer pink. Drain.
