As a busy working mom who cooks up at least 50 different recipes a month, we have to wash a lot of dishes in our house. In fact, I even brought an assistant on to help us keep up with the dishes (plus lots of other things because she’s awesome!).

So because of the state of our kitchen, whenever I am cooking specifically for our family, I want cooking to be as simple as possible without making a ton of dirty dishes.

This zucchini beef skillet is one of those throw together meals that is crazy easy to make. I used freeze dried onions and refrigerated chopped garlic in place of fresh, so all I had to chop was the zucchini and parsley from our garden.

We’ve decided we really like eating our zucchini beef skillet over rice to stretch the cost, and probably because I’m from Hawaii, so our rice pot is pretty much always full of rice.

Of course, if you don’t want to dirty a pot for rice, or need a paleo meal, the zucchini and beef is quite filling and flavorful all on its own.

We've always made this recipe with freeze dried or dehydrated onions and jarred garlic. The measurements for fresh are listed as well, just that it will increase your prep time. This makes 4 servings if eaten alone, 6 servings if over rice (though of course it will not be paleo over rice!) Recipe adapted with permission from food.com
