You can eat this with tortillas or cooked rice. You can eat it as a Chinese food or a Mexican food!

A quick stir-fried dish with cut veggies and ground meat (no meat cutting is required for this meal, yeah!)


  • Ground meat (You can use ground chicken, pork, or beef)
  • Four to five cloves of Garlic
  • A few slices of ginger
  • 2 small Yellow peppers
  • 2 small Red peppers
  • 3 medium-sized Mushrooms
  • 1/2 onion
  • One or two carrots
  • One or two stalks celery
  • Cauliflower if you have it
  • Corn kernels cut out from corn (–If you have it. I don’t have it this time, but I really like fresh corn kernel in this stir-fried dish)

Stir-fry meat on a pan and vegetables on a wok with oil. Put the garlic and ginger first on both pans and then put meat and vegetables on separate pans. Just stir-fry each. Once both are all cooked, mix them together. Add the seasonings (sesame oil, rice wine, soy sauce, Lawry’s salt, pepper, chili paste (last one optional) in the end. 

Cooking Procedure:

  1. Always cook the meat and vegetables on separate pans over medium-high heat. That way you can make sure meat is cooked through and have a better control on not overcooking vegetables.  Heat oil and once it is hot, put in the garlic and ginger (Here I forgot to put ginger until after I put the ground meat). Stir-fry the ground meat a bit, then add onion and chili (if you like) and stir-fry until it is all cooked.

2. Cook the veggies on a separate pan:

First, heat up some oil over medium high heat and add chopped garlic and ginger. Stir it for 30 seconds.

Make sure not to overcook the vegetables, put vegetables with harder texture ones first, such as carrots.

3. Mix well the cooked meat with cooked veggies together and then turn off the heat.

4. Lastly, add the following seasonings:

Add the following seasonings:

  • A bit of sesame oil.
  • A bit of rice wine
  • Some soy sauce
  • Lawry’s salt
  • Pepper
  • Chili paste (if you like it spicy. Or you can cook it with red or green chili).

I like to cook vegetables with ground meat because I don’t have to get my hands dirty by cutting raw meat, since it is already ground! It makes cooking so much easier and it tastes good too.

These vegetables can vary depending on what veggies you have. I am not very specific on the quantity of ingredients and seasoning because I never measure it when I cook. Just don’t put too much at first. Add less and try it and put more if it is not flavorful enough.

You can eat this as a Chinese food or a Mexican food.


Eat It as a Mexican Food:

You can eat this with tortillas and make a quesadilla. After heating the tortillas and the ground meat leftover and cheese, I add tomatoes and avocado inside before eating.

The porridge is below the stir-fried meat and veggies. The millet with lentils and sweet potatoes greatly enhance the health benefits of this meal, since all ingredients in this porridge are packed with vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fibers!

I just love how I feel after eating this meal. So good!!
