Ground Beef Stir Fry with Israeli Couscous


Sometimes I need a quick “go-to” meal with all the right comfort elements: proteins, vegetables and starches. It is fast to make, pretty simple and most of the ingredients can be substituted so I use the vegetables and herbs that I get in my CSA basket (community supported agriculture). It must be colorful and contain that hit of fresh herbs at the end.

  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 rib celery, finely diced
  • 1 carrot, finely diced
  • 1/2 pound organic grass fed ground beef
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste (or a fresh chopped tomato if it’s the right season & it is farm fresh)
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, yellow bell pepper and red bell pepper
  • 1 cup Israeli couscous
  • 1 bunch finely chopped fresh parsley
  1. Cook the couscous according to package directions (don’t forget the butter;-))
  2. Saute onion, celery and carrot until soft. Season.
  3. Add beef and saute on med until brown. Season.
  4. Add tomato paste and mix well. Add a bit of water or broth, as needed.
  5. Add cook couscous, stir, then stir in the fresh parsley and serve.

Bon Appetit!
