Zucchini Beef SkilletZucchini is one of my favorite summer vegetables and I am always looking for new ways to make it.  I just add some cornbread muffins to accompany this dish and it makes a meal.

1 pound ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon chili powder

2 fresh tomatoes, peeled and chopped (You don’t have to peel the tomatoes, sometimes I do and other times I don’t)

1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn

2 tablespoons pimiento

1 tablespoon dried parsley

5 cups unpeeled thinly sliced zucchini (Can use yellow squash instead of zucchini or a mixture of both)

1 package onion soup mix

3/4 cup water

Brown beef, onion and green pepper in a large skillet. Drain. Add remaining ingredients.  Cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes until vegetables are tender.  Makes 8 to 10 servings. Enjoy!

  2. My mom would often do a veggie and ground beef mix in the summer, especially with zucchini or summer squash, but your recipe really takes things to a new level, will have to try soon, thanks.

  3. How many cans can be substituted for fresh tomatoes
