This was great and approved by my 5 year olds :) It reheated well so can make ahead and reheat or take for lunches. I used green beans. Use grass-fed or lean beef. May also use turkey or sausage. I went easy on the curry for this first time and didn't use tumeric because I didn't have it. Does anyone have tips for easier ways to cut sweet potatoes? They are not bad when you have had them for awhile but they can be tough!
