How to make this Easy One-Pan Beef Organ Scramble

To start – pan fry the kabocha squash.

Dice the kabocha squash into 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch pieces.

Measure out 2 cups of uncooked squash and store the rest away.

Place 1 tbsp of ghee in your cooking pan and bring to medium-high heat.

Once the pan is hot, add the kabocha squash. Sauté for about 5-7 minutes, stirring the squash every 30-60 seconds. Kabocha squash burns easily, so don’t forget to rotate it. The goal is to get it browned and crispy without burning it. When you see the brown color creeping up the sides of the squash, rotate it. Even just 15-30 seconds too long without rotating the squash can burn it.

When the kabocha squash is done, salt it to taste. Remove it from the pan and place it in a bowl to cool.

Next – make the bacon-beef blend.

Chop up the bacon into thin slivers (like 1/4 inch x 1 inch).

At medium heat, cook the bacon in the same pan.

When you notice the bacon almost done (about 1-2 minutes from being done), add the Force of Nature beef blend to the pan.

Sauté the mixture until both the beef blend and the bacon are cooked to your liking.

Then – add the eggs.

Decrease the heat to medium-low and let the pan rest for about a minute (leaving the beef-bacon mixture in the pan).

Once the beef-bacon mixture is cooked, push it to one side so it fills half the pan and the other half of the pan is exposed.

Add the eggs to the exposed side of the pan.

Increase the heat to medium and scramble the eggs to your liking.

Once the eggs are almost done (about 30 seconds left), fold them into the beef-bacon mixture.

Finish off the eggs, and salt the beef-bacon-egg mixture to taste.

Now, put it all together.

Once the beef-bacon-egg mixture is cooked, remove it from the stovetop.

Fold in the cooked Kabocha squash and squeeze fresh lemon juice over the dish.

If you prefer, finely chop fresh cilantro and use it as a garnish.

Serve and enjoy! This dish tastes wonderful with yellow mustard.

Store in the fridge in an airtight container for 2-3 days.

Tips to make the best One-Pan Beef Organ Scramble

  • Kabocha squash mops up fat quickly. When sauteeing the kabocha squash, make sure you have enough fat at all times. I find that more fat is better. Kabocha squash also browns quickly, so if you give it a lot of fat, it will fry and produce a beautiful and tasty crisp.

    We made and devoured the One-Pan Beef Organ Scramble last night. I love the fact that this recipe truly required only one pan to prepare. Like Ash, I used our go-to cast iron skillet. The only real prep was cutting the kabocha squash and the bacon, the rest was all done in the pan! For my first attempt, I followed her recipe step by step with the exception of the beef. We didn’t have Force of Nature Ancestral Blend so I used 2 lbs of organic grass-fed beef as a substitute. Side note, I placed a large Force of Nature order last night! With the exception of my squash not crisping up as I had hoped, everything went great. It is an awesome mix of protein and fat-rich foods. We were all full for the rest of the night and I saved enough for lunch today! Thank you for your creative and tasty recipe ideas.
