  • 1 lb ground beef

  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 1 1/2 cup low sodium broth beef or chicken

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add carrots, onions, and celery. Cook and stir for about 5 minutes, until veggies are beginning to soften.
  • Add garlic and ground beef to the skillet. Break up beef and cook until browned.
