Course: Main Course
Keyword: keto, Paleo, Whole30
1 red/yellow pepper
1handfulthai basil(italian basil will work, but the flavour will be a bit different)
1tbsphot sauce(sriracha works well)
In a large saucepan or wok heat 1 tbsp of the oil on medium heat and add the beef, salt, garlic powder, chilli flakes, and black pepper. Allow the beef to brown, stirring occasionally to break down any large lumps.
Meanwhile, peel and dice the carrot, onion, jalapeño, red pepper and ginger. Mince the garlic and thinly slice (chiffonade) the basil.
When the beef has browned, remove from pan and set aside.
Heat another tablespoon of oil in the same pan and add the onion, garlic, and chilli. Stir fry for 2 mins, then add the carrots. After another 2 mins, add the bell pepper and the browned beef back in. Stir fry till for about 3-4 mins to allow the ingredients to heat through. The idea is to not over cook them so they have a bit of bite.
Add the coconut aminos and hot sauce. Give it a taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
Then turn off the heat and add the basil so it can wilt in the residual heat. Serve warm on a bed of rice or noodles and top with bean sprouts and a fried egg!
Serve over rice (regular or cauli rice) with a fried egg on top.
