You know sometimes it take a few mentions for me to understand when I really need to try a recipe, anyone else? Well, go ahead and count this a as a COUPLE of mentions because you’re not going to want to wait on this quick and easy beef recipe, it’s fantastic. I kept seeing this go by on my Facebook feed, a simple recipe from Brandy at Bran Appetit and I never took it seriously. Seriously, as in “I need to make this now” seriously. And then I had thawed ground beef staring me down and suddenly I knew exactly what to make for dinner (and a few lunches!) with that ground beef.

My version of Sweet and Spicy Beef has a couple cups of chopped veggies tossed in and I skip the lime wedges. I firmly believe that if  I actually have limes (and/or lemons) I’d much rather make margaritas, maybe that leads to being slow on the uptake, I don’t know. The recipe is amazing either way and it’s ready so quick you better start the rice, clean up the kitchen AND THEN start this recipe, because-BOOM-dinner is ready!
