Ahh, beef with bacon. It’s become a classic, and for good reason! From the bacon cheeseburger to bacon shrimp; I love to eat bacon. With anything (ok, not quite anything). And recently, I brought a bacon mashed sweet potatoes recipe to urbanpaleochef.com, only underscoring the point! Bacon is amazing, and I continually look for opportunities to add bacon to my meals.
Dinner tonight was a delicious ground beef, spiced lightly with thyme, oregano, and basil. Over the beef is the same cilantro sauce I made a few days ago. The combination of the ground beef with the lightly spread cilantro sauce was excellent. On the side are the bacon mashed sweet potatoes, and a mix of white button mushrooms and trumpet mushrooms, sauteed in rosemary and olive oil. I always keep some chopped mushrooms around, for great flavor in a quick meal.
