For this recipe I took the concept of a traditional Jamaican Hand Pie and made it less labor intensive and more approachable for an easy and healthful weeknight dinner. My husband and I like to eat the seasoned meat and vegetable mixture on top of cauliflower rice and our boys eat it over white rice for a flavorful and hearty bowl meal.

To make this #dinnerdoneby9am I fully prepare the meat and vegetable mixture, then refrigerate all day and reheat just prior to serving.

-1 Tbsp olive or coconut oil
-1 onion, diced
-1 lb ground beef
-3 cloves garlic, minced
-1 Tbsp curry powder
-1 Tbsp brown sugar
-2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
-1 tsp thyme
-1 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp black pepper
-1/2 tsp allspice
-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
-1 c frozen mixed vegetables, cooked according to package directions
-rice or cauliflower rice for serving

Heat oil in large pan over medium heat, add onion and beef. Cook, breaking up with a spoon, until beef is browned, about 10 minutes. Drain off fat and add garlic. Cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Add curry powder through cayenne, stir well. Add mixed vegetables, cook 5 additional minutes, stirring intermittently. Serve over rice or cauliflower rice.
