Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    12 oz (4 servings) Chef Meg's Beef Roast
    2 c sweet potatoes, baked or steamed (about 2 large sweet potatoes)
    2 c broccolini, washed and trimmed (1 bunch)
    4 t almonds, slivered
    1/2 lemon, juiced
    8 T (4 servings) Chef Meg's Caramelized Onions

Tips

Top the lean roast beef with Chef Meg's Caramelized Onions. A quick broccolini side dish and a steamed or baked sweet potato round out the meal. Don't forget a cup of milk!

Broccolini is similar to broccoli, with long thin stems and tender florets. You can substitute asparagus, broccoli or green beans in this recipe.


Directions

Microwave or bake the sweet potatoes until tender.

Steam or simmer broccolini in water until just tender. immediately place the broccolini in a bowl filled with ice water to stop the cooking. Slice the warmed meat. Heat a non-stick saute pan to medium high heat. Add drained broccolini to the warmed pan. Saute for two minutes. Add almonds and continue to cook for one minute. Remove the pan from heat; add lemon juice and season with pinch of black pepper.

To serve: Place 3 oz meat (about the size of the palm of your hand) on a plate. Top with 2 T caramelized onions. Serve with 1/2 c broccolini and 1/2 c sweet potatoes.

    wiki DEF: "Broccolini is a green vegetable similar to broccoli but with smaller florets and longer, thin stalks. Although often misidentified as young broccoli, it is a cross between broccoli and kai-lan, Chinese broccoli. Broccolini's flavor is sweet, with notes of both broccoli and asparagus." - 6/12/11
