Whole30 Roasted Butternut Squash with Ground Sirloin



  • 2 butternut squash (try to find one with a long neck) cut into 1 inch thick rounds, neck only
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Ground sirloin filling

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2/3 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 ½ – 3 cups sliced brown mushrooms
  • 1 ½ pounds ground sirloin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp cayenne
  • 2 generous handfuls spinach, chopped

Preheat oven to 400. Peel and cut the butternut squash into 1” thick rounds.

Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on a large sheet pan, lined with parchment paper.

Cook until soft but not mushy, about 55 minutes, flipping halfway through.

While the squash is cooking, make the filling

Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat.  Sauté the onions for 3 minutes then add the garlic and cook for 30 more seconds, stirring.

Add the mushrooms and cook, covered for 3 minutes. Uncover and cook for 3 more minutes.

Add the ground sirloin and cook over high heat, about 6 minutes (or until meat is no longer pink). Breaking up clumps with a wooden spoon.

Add the salt, pepper and cayenne. Then add the spinach and cook for about 2 minutes.

Remove the squash from the oven and place on plates. Top with the meat mixture and serve. Garnish with Marinated Onions MAGIC ELIXIRS™.
