Ground Beef & Mushroom Endive


This dish was created from me going to Trader Joes and, as usual, buying something I didn’t have a plan for.  And this time, it was endives.  I saw them and I thought, “I’ll make something with this,” but the truth is that I forgot about them in the fridge.

Four days later, I saw them at the bottom of the vegetable drawer and I thought, “shoot, the endives!”.  I didn’t want them to go bad, so I ended up throwing a few things together and to make endive boat for my afternoon low-carb/keto snack. 

Surprisingly, they turned out really delicious and before I knew it, everyone ate them and they were gone!  And that’s how this Ground Beef & Mushroom Endive recipe came about on LCA (thanks Jim and Angela for the inspiration)!

So for this dish, we start with making the ground beef by mixing together some Dried Shiitake Mushrooms, green onions, garlic, ginger with various seasoning.

And for those that aren’t all that familiar with Dried Shiitake Mushrooms, it’s a common source of ‘umami’ flavoring in a lot of Japanese dishes.  It’s basically dehydrated shiitake and you prepare them by soaking it in a bowl of water.  Just take note that  Dried Shiitake Mushrooms tastes VERY different than fresh shiitake.  The dehydrating process condenses all the umami flavors so the mushroom are much stronger in flavor.

Now back to the recipe, we go ahead and stir fry the beef mix and just pour it on some endives topped with some Sriracha and there you go, you have yourself some ground beef & mushroom endive!

This dish really is the perfect low-carb/keto snack or meal for that matter.  Also, it would be great as an appetizer when you have guests over because it plates well and looks impressive.

The Dried Shiitake Mushrooms really add to the flavor of the ground beef creating a savory umami taste while the endives add a slight bitter refreshing crunch to the mix.  Very contrasting flavors that pair well together!
