How to make it
- Cook ground meat in olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat.
- As it starts to cook(I don't like to actually brown this), add butter, onion and garlic and cook another 5-7 minutes or so to cook meat through and soften onion.
- Add mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon, beef base and a lil salt and pepper and cook until everything is cooked through and veggies are tender.
- Using some of the liquid in the pan(or beef broth if not using the beef base!) combine arrowroot, corn starch or flour with it and make a slurry.
- Add to the pan and bring to a boil, stirring often, to thicken well.
- In a very large mixing bowl, combine spinach and arugula.
- Add goat cheese to the meat mixture and mix well to melt and combine.
- Remove from heat and pour the hot meat mixture over the greens.
- Stir well to partially wilt the greens.
- Pour into a deep 9X13 pan and top with the fried peppers.
- Bake in a 350 oven until heated through and peppers are golden brown(or golden browner than they already are. ;) Just don't let 'em burn) about 30 minutes.
- Serve over buttered oven toasted bread or potatoes.
