Asian Ground Beef, Pepper and Onion Saute

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

A recipe I found on that I modified to fit my allergies and our tastes. We like our oriental food saucy, so I made extra sauce and added water chestnuts for DD. This has a kick to it from the ginger, red pepper flakes and the chili paste. Makes 6 1-cup servings. This is a WW friendly recipe, if you use 96% lean ground beef. Points value per serving as calculated on the WW website is 3.

After all of the veggies are sliced this is super quick & easy. I opted to use lean ground turkey, slice the peppers, and throw in a fresh jalapeno too. I served with lettuce and napa cabbage leaves for rolling instead of rice and was happy with the meal. Thank you for sharing this colorful & tasty recipe!

My husband really liked this recipe. Excellent way to prepare ground beef other than soup, meatloaf, or spaghetti. Very forgiving if you have to sub an ingredient, or are lacking one. I had lots of fresh veggies and added some mushrooms. I have a feeling this will find a way into our meal rotation. Give it a try!

We thought this was good, but expected there would be a bigger Asian flavour. We had all the ingredients on hand which made it fast and easy. Thanks.
