Like I always say though, there’s a time for workout nutrition and a time for whole foods. While nutrition is function first and flavor later, I’m a firm believer you can have both.
This week we’re back to enjoying the warm weather with another great Grill Memoirs recipe. You all know I’m all about a good burger, but this time around I thought I’d change things up.
So imagine this – it’s a warm Saturday night, you’re out in the backyard with good family and friends, listening to some Thomas Rhett’s ‘Beer Can’t Fix’ with a nice cold one, and you want something outside of a good beef or turkey burger.
You’ve gone fishing and have a few steaks on the grill, but you still want some sort of additional red meat option that’s not too heavy – this is where beef stuffed bell peppers topped with Parmesan cheese come in.
They go great with your choice of carbs and will knock out 1 of the 2 vegetables you’ll need for dinner so it’s a win-win (speaking of, if you have trouble figuring out what to eat every day, check out the SUPP UP. No Bull Meal Planner for $9.99 over at the SUPP UP. shop now).
Let’s get started.
This is a great recipe because it only takes 5 steps and 6 ingredients.
Makes: 1 serving.
Prep Time: 5-10 minutes.
Cook time: 10 minutes.
Total Time: 15-20 minutes.
Items Needed: A grill or an oven. Foil. A chopping board. A large bowl. Cast iron skillet (smooth, no slots).
- 170 grams ground beef
- 3 red, green, or yellow bell peppers
- 1 chili
- 1 Tbsp evenly mixed minced garlic and onion
- 10-12 grams Parmesan cheese
- Salt and Pepper (to taste)
- Apple Cider or White Vinegar (for cleaning the beef)
- Fire up your grill, making sure it reaches at least 450 F (250 C), get your cast iron skillet hot.
- Cut the top off your bell peppers and remove seeds.
- Place peppers on foil in the grill until you finish cooking your beef.
- Heat beef on cast iron skillet (smooth, without slots), cook halfway, then add garlic/onion mix, salt and pepper, and chili, cooking for about 5-10 minutes until beef is cooked all the way.
- Take the peppers out, stuff them with beef, and top with Parmesan cheese.
Pretty straightforward right? Here’s the macros and a few tips…
P: 36 grams, C: 18 grams, F: 9 grams
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you’ll know I always use vinegar to pull junk out of any protein I cook. It pulls any strong flavors and residual bacteria out of them, ensuring you get the best flavor and the cleanest end result. While I know some may disagree with me, you CAN rinse your proteins – just do it with ice cold water.
Similar methods are used when cleaning and processing meat.
I like this recipe because it provides a big hit of protein, healthy carbs, minerals, healthy fats, a good dose of CLA, antioxidants, capsicum to burn fat, and more.
