Ground Lamb, Chard & Squash Mix Up

Property of

I set the goal for myself lately that I would try to think outside the box when it came to recipes. I still want them to be easy with ingredients that are easily found but I want to try combinations of things I wouldn’t normally think of. The following is a result of one of my experiments. In true Paleo Pact flare it requires 1 pot, 1 spoon, 1 knife and a cutting board to make and it takes less that an hour. I know because I made it before I went to work yesterday!


1 lb ground lamb
1 bushel green onions, diced (roughly 1 1/2 cups)
1 bushel red swiss chard, chopped (roughly 2 cups)
1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cubed (roughly 1 1/2 cups)
1 1/2 tbsp. bacon grease


Fill a large pot half way with water and bring to a boil.
Add a pinch of salt and butternut squash(that has been peeled and cubed) to water, let boil until cooked(it’s cooked when you can poke a fork through the squash).
Drain water and place back on stove over medium heat.
Add green onion (diced) and swiss chard(chopped) to pot and cook for roughly 3 minutes.
Add ground lamb, bacon grease and season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally until lamb is cooked(use a spoon to break up the lamb, so it doesn’t all stick together).

That’s it! I split mine up into five portions for lunch for the week.
