Keto Ground Beef and Peppers Skillet

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb (450g) ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes (with juice)
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, adjust to your spice preference)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (optional, for topping)
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions:

  1. In a large skillet or frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the sliced onions and minced garlic to the pan, and sauté until the onions become translucent.
  3. Add the ground beef to the pan and cook until it’s browned and fully cooked, breaking it apart with a spatula as it cooks.
  4. Stir in the tomato paste, dried oregano, dried basil, and red pepper flakes (if using). Mix well to coat the beef with the spices.
  5. Pour in the diced tomatoes with their juice. Stir everything together and let it simmer for a few minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Add the sliced bell peppers to the skillet and cook until they soften slightly but still have a crunch. You can cook them to your desired level of tenderness.
  7. If you prefer the dish to be saucier, you can add a splash of water or beef broth to the skillet.
  8. Optional: If you’d like a cheesy topping, sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the beef and peppers mixture. Cover the skillet with a lid for a minute or two until the cheese melts.
  9. Remove the skillet from the heat and garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
