Sweet Burger Skillet Dinner

(re-post from my non-cooking blog) This recipe is gluten-free, and absolutely delicious. Make sure to give enough time for the sweet potato cubes to cook to soft, sticky yummy blobs (unless you like your sweet potatoes crunchy).

I made this skillet supper for dinner tonight. It was so yummy that I wanted to put down the recipe somewhere.

You will need

1 large-2 small sweet potatoes, scrubbed and pared
1 sweet onion
1 bell pepper

Chop all on a cutting board and add to

2 T coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Cook and stir until onions begin to soften. Cover and cook on low for 10 minutes. Remove temporarily to separate dish. Add to skillet:

3/4 lb. hamburger
2-3 cloves garlic

Cook until meat is brown and add sweet potato mixture back into skillet, stirring all together.

1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 1/2 tsp. salt
fresh basil, oregano, rosemary and thyme - chopped, or 1 tsp. each dried if no fresh available.

Add a Tbsp or so of beef or vegetable stock as needed to prevent sticking. Cover and simmer on low half an hour, stirring occasionally until sweet potatoes are soft.

Serve over this base:
Cook millet or rice in half beef or vegetable stock/broth, and half coconut milk with cinnamon, salt and black pepper, till dry and fluffy.
