  • Ground Beef Mixture
  • Melt the oil in a large enameled cast-iron pot or saucepan over medium-high heat.

Add in ground beef and sauté until it begins to turn brown, about 4-5 more minutes. Add in bell peppers and mushrooms and cover the pot. Cook for another 10 minutes with the lid on, stirring every 5 minutes until the mushrooms begin to release water. Uncover and cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
