Bell Pepper with Ground Meat

This is one dish that my sister used to make for us often. It is quick, easy, simple and delicious. Whenever I’m little tired to cook and if I have bell peppers on hand, I like to make this dish. It is a quick stir fry dish but, she uses fish sauce instead of soy/soya sauce and which sets this dish apart from other stir fry dishes. You can either use ground beef or turkey but I usually make it with turkey.

Bell Pepper with Ground Meat

Serves: 2 to 4
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes

1 tablespoon oil
9 to 10 cloves of garlic – whack with knife
1 medium onion – 1/4 of it finely chopped and 3/4 of it cut in chunks
1 lb ground turkey or beef
1 large or 2 small bell peppers green or mixed – cut in 3/4 inch squares
Fish sauce to taste
Black pepper to taste


  1. Heat a wok or a wide frying pan over high heat and add oil.
  2. Once the oil is hot, add garlic and quickly stir for few seconds. Add chopped onions and continue to stir for about a minute until onions are translucent.
  3. Add ground meat, stir and break the meat chunks apart. Continue to cook for about 5 minutes or until the meat is cooked through and almost all the water has evaporated.
  4. At this point, add the onion chunks and continue to cook for another minute.
  5. Add bell peppers, stir and season it with fish sauce and cook for another minute or so. Do not overcook the bell peppers.
  6. Crack some black pepper, stir once and serve hot with steam rice and hot sauce of your choice.
