Creamed Beef Florentine

Type: Meat
Courses: Main Course
Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb 454g / 16ozGround round or sirloin
  Peanut or walnut oil - for browning
2 tablespoons 30mlFinely-minced or chopped onion
1   Whole leaf spinach
1 cup 237mlHeavy cream
1 teaspoon 5mlFreshly-ground black pepper
  Parmesan or Romano Cheese - preferably fresh

Recipe Instructions

Brown the burger (Laura's Lean brand works well here if it's available in your area) with finely minced onion, taking care to break burger into fine bits as you brown (avoid large clumps of beef.) This browns best in peanut oil or walnut oil but any will do. When done, remove burger from skillet to a bowl and set aside.

Lower heat to simmer and pour in 1 cup of heavy cream and stir until cream begins to reduce. Add ground black pepper and stir. Add 1 can of well drained spinach and stir gently until hot and the cream is getting a bit thick. Add burger meat back into skillet gently and mix well with sauce.

Spoon into shallow bowls and top with salt to taste and lots and lots of Parmesan or Romano Cheeses. It's quite delicious, but admittedly a bit odd looking.

This recipe yields 4 servings; 4.5 carb grams per serving.
