The last time I was home, I decided to make dinner so that when everyone came home from it would be ready. I found some ground beef in the fridge, in Zimbabwe we call it mince meat so I decided I was to mix it with some covo( looks and tastes similar to kale). Just before I started cooking my sister came home, she was horrified by my choice. I will never forget the look on her face. She could not believe that after spending the whole day at work I expected her to eat ground beef. In Zimbabwe like in most places, ground beef is cheap and so it is looked down on but I love it. I love it for the price and for all the things that you can transform it into. Most dishes with ground beef are fast and tasty too.
My husband does not like a lot of foods, it gets boring at times but he is easy to please. I make him sadza every other day and he will be fine. I usually just mix it up with the protein and vegetables. His favourite is any meat mixed with leafy vegetables. Ground beef and kale mix is one of his favourites. It literally takes me less than twenty minutes to make the meal which works when I do not feel like slaving away at the stove, which is often.
Add ground beef and stir it in until browned.
Add cut kale and stir it until wilted. Season with salt and pepper. I like the kale a bit crispy so I serve immediately.
