Ground Beef Omelet

Ground beef omelet is a simple recipe made from ground beef and eggs obviously. Omelet has been part of the Filipino food for decades and I think this comes from the western cooking since we have been under the United Stated before our country’s independence. Anyway cooking omelet was also a good remedy to save left overs if you have ground beef or pork dishes on your dinner which you can turn into a different dish on your breakfast the next day.

To cook ground beef omelet; Heat 1 tsp. cooking oil in a skillet and saute garlic and onions until slightly brown. Then add tomatoes and saute until tender. Add the ground beef and stir fry until cooked. Drain off excess fat. Season with salt, pepper, sugar, and MSG. Add parsley, potatoes, bell pepper and 1 cup of water. Cook meat and cover the pan until potatoes are tender and liquid have evaporated. Set aside and cool. In another skillet, heat oil about half of the 1/3 cup and just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Combine the egg-meat mixture and pour it on the medium heated pan and let it cook undisturbed for about 2 – 3 minutes.
