Ginger-Garlic Beef Skillet

I love to cook. I love to bake. Just because I love to cook and bake does not mean I love to spend my life in the kitchen. I’ve decided that some of my favorite meals are skillet meals. They provide a hot, healthy meal (loaded with veggies) in 20-30 minutes and only dirty one pan. Now that, I love! 🙂

Dishes like this one typically use some sort of steak, but I had ground beef on hand and it worked just as good! This recipe is a good change-up for me as I often get stuck in a rut with Mexican-type skillet meals.
