This is definitely a bit of an unusual dish, which was created after staring into the fridge for a long time! I wanted to marry Eastern and Western cuisines, and this is what I managed to come up with. It was so much more delicious than I had anticipated, and everything went really well together. And to top it off, it’s highly nutritious (with beef, veggies, and an egg) and easy to make.

So, I started by dicing 2 bell peppers.
I heated up a pan with a bit of coconut oil in it and dropped the diced bell peppers into it.
While the peppers were cooking, I chopped up 2 burgers into little cubes. I had some burgers ready cooked in the fridge, but if you don’t, then you can use minced meat instead.
Then I placed the diced burgers into the pan with the peppers and stir-fried them together. I also added some tamari sauce (can be substituted with coconut aminos), chili powder, red chili flakes, salt, and black pepper. Read this article for why tamari sauce is Paleo.
While the bell peppers and burgers were gently cooking away, I got 6 small bunches of bok choy and washed them and chopped off the ends. Then I pulled the leaves apart and placed them into another pan with coconut oil to stir-fry.
I let the bok choy cook for a bit on a medium heat until the leaves started to look wilted. Then I grated some fresh ginger into it and sprinkled a bit of salt on it.
The last ingredient for this dish is a fried egg, which seemed fitting since I was making this for a late brunch.
I put everything together in a medium sized bowl. The bell peppers and burgers went in first.
Next, I put bok choy around the edges of the bowl on top of the bell peppers and burgers.
Then the egg went on top, like a lid.
It was really delicious, and both J and I ate our bowls in no time at all! The chili powder and red chili flakes added a nice kick to the stir-fry at the bottom, which contrasted with the ginger taste of the bok choy and the more mild taste of the egg. This is definitely something I am going to make over and over again!
Here’s my half-eaten bowl…
