Beef American Chop Suey

Ingredients:

1 pound ground beef

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 large chopped onion (white or yellow onion)

1 chopped green pepper

2 minced garlic cloves

1 teaspoon of salt

½ teaspoon of pepper

1 ½ teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon chopped parsley

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

2 cans (14.5 oz) undrained diced tomatoes

1 pound elbow macaroni

Instructions:

Bring a pot of water to a boil and prepare the macaroni as directed on the label…watch your timer, don’t overcook, usually 7 minutes, drain. In the meantime……..

Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil and ground beef, break it up into small pieces while it cooks, 2-3 minutes (some pieces should still be pink.) drain off the fat.

Add the chopped onions, green pepper and garlic to the meat, stirring every few minutes. Cook 5-6 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.

Add oregano, basil, parsley, salt and Worcestershire sauce. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.

Add the tomatoes with the juice. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the cooked and drained pasta and mix gently.

Cover and simmer 2-3 minutes more.

Pour into warm bowls and enjoy.

Preparation tips you can include in your blog post:

You can substitute ground beef for ground turkey if desired.

You can use a basic Italian seasoning blend in place of the dried oregano, basil, and parsley.

The Worcestershire sauce adds a real nice smoky depth in the background. You can add more or less depending on your taste.

This recipe heats up well! You can also freeze it!
