  • 12 oz white mushrooms sliced or chopped (340g)
  • 1 tsp. salt divided
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 1 bell pepper thinly sliced or diced (200g)
  • ½ large white or yellow onion diced (200g)
  • 1 lb. extra lean 96/4 ground beef 448g
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcester sauce 15g
  • 2 frozen garlic cubes or minced cloves
  • 1 cup provolone sharp white cheddar, or mozzarella cheese, grated (82g)


  • Heat a large, heavy skillet to high heat. Spray the pan with a spritz of olive oil and let that heat for a minute. Add the mushrooms along with half of the salt, and the pepper. Cook for three minutes. Add the peppers and diced onions and cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring often until the veggies are fragrant and tender.
  • Push the veggies to one side of the pan and add your ground beef and remaining salt. Using a meat masher or a wooden spoon, break up the meat until it’s browned and cooked through. Add the Worcester sauce and garlic and continue to cook for about two minutes. Add any additional salt and pepper to taste.
  • Turn off the heat and top with grated cheese. Cover until the cheese is melty. Enjoy on toasted buns, on a baked potato, over rice, or your favorite low-carb base like cauliflower rice or spaghetti squash!


If you want to try and sneak the mushrooms past your kids, throw them in the food processor and pulse until they’re nice and crumbly. It’ll blend right in with the ground beef! I like to get my mushrooms cooked down pretty good if I have any chance of getting them past my boys.

I buy my 96/4 ground beef at Sprouts and it’s labeled 4.5 fat/4oz. If you use a higher fat option and track your macros, you’d be pretty safe to simply manually add the difference in fat (for a 4 oz portion) to your app.
