Preparation and cooking time
30 min
4 persons
  • 350g/12.3 oz of lean ground beef
  • 1 large onion (finely diced)
  • 5 tomatoes (dice 3, slice 2)
  • 1 green bell pepper (seeds and veins removed, minced)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper (seeds and veins removed, minced)

Crumble the beef into a large, preheated non-stick skillet; cook over medium heat until it starts to sizzle, about 1 minute. Add onion and peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until the vegetables are soft and the moisture has evaporated, for about 10 minutes.Add tomatoes and flour; stir to combine. Stir inwater, vinegar, chili sauce and ketchup and bring to a simmer, stirring often. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened and the onion is very tender, for about another 10 minutes. Garnish with some tomato and fresh parsley.
