One-Pan Sweet Potato Skillet Recipe


  • 1 1 lb package Grass Run Farms® 85/15 Ground Beef
  • 6 C frozen, prepared sweet potato chunks
  • 1 C green onion, diced
  • 1 C fresh kale, chopped
  • 1, 12 oz jar fire roasted red pepper, drained and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp cooking oil or butter
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt, or to taste
  • 3 oz pepper jack cheese, shredded
  • Freshly minced parsley and sour cream for topping



  1. Heat a large skillet to high heat and brown the ground beef until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F or your preferred doneness.
  2. Remove the beef from the skillet, place in a bowl, and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet you used to brown the beef, lower the heat to medium and add the cooking oil (or butter), sweet potatoes, green onion, red pepper, and kale.
  4. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the cooked beef and all the seasonings to the skillet and stir to combine.
  6. Lower heat to medium-low and sprinkle the pepper jack cheese across the top of the mix.
  7. Add the cover to the skillet and let it simmer for a few minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  8. Remove the heat and serve with a sprinkle of fresh parsley and a dollop of sour cream.
