Spicy Beef with Tomatoes and Poached Egg

Spicy Beef with Tomatoes and Poached Egg
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Some nights when it’s dinner time I just stand in front of the pantry and wonder what the heck am I going to cook. Tonight is one of those nights.

Basically, tonight was a whatever I had on hand ended up being dinner. I think any type of meat can be used, I just happen to have a roast. I didn’t start it in time to slow cook it, so yeah, we had this instead. I like to use onion and garlic together. When I want spicy, then it is cumin, paprika, and cayenne pepper.

My neighbors have me a bunch of veggies, so I wanted to use them. Tomatoes, squash, sweet Armenian cucumbers, and some type of pepper (not jalapeno). The tomatoes and peppers made into the dish. The cucumber and tomatoes in the side salad. I’ll have to figure out the squash tomorrow.

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time10 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time40 mins

 2 lbs Beef - but Chicken, or Pork also works
 2 tbsp Olive Oil
 2 tbsp Onion - Dried (re-hydrated) - or 1/2 cup Fresh, chopped
 1 Pepper (any kind depending on how spicy you want it)
 1 Garlic - Clove, mined
 2 tsp Smoked Paprika
 2 tsp Cumin
 ½ tsp Cayenne Pepper
 2 Diced Tomatoes - Can, 14.5 oz
 2 Tomatoes - Fresh - Medium
 1 Beef Consume - Can, 10.5 oz
 6 Eggs

1

You can use any type of meat. Beef seems to handle the spicy well.

2

Cut the meat into thin bite size pieces.

Cook in a large, deep pan with oil on med-high heat.

Cook for about 4 minutes until brown to about a Med-Rare. If using chicken or pork, cook well.

3

If you have fresh onion, go ahead and use them. A small to medium dice.

If you don't, then use some Dried Onion. I like to rehydrate them with a little water or stock. I just enough to cover.

4

My neighbor gave me some pepper. Don't know what they are exactly, but their heat is between bell peppers and jalapenos.

Cut in half, and remove rib and seeds. I use a grapefruit spoon to do this. Makes it easy.

After, cut into a small dice, but not minced.

5

Add the pepper, onion, and garlic.

Saute 1 to 2 minutes until fragrant.

6

This is the part that will make your kitchen smell heavenly!!

Add the Cumin, Smoked Paprika, and Cayenne Pepper.

Salt and Pepper to taste. I think I used about 1/8 tsp each. I don't use a lot (ever!).

Stir and cook for about 6 to 8 minutes to fuse all the flavors together.

7

Add the fresh diced tomato, canned tomato (with liquid) and beef consume.

Stir well, and cook for 5 minutes to at least simmer.

8

Time to poach the eggs. You can do it separate, or in the sauce. I think next time I'm going to try separate with a runny yolk.

With your spoon, make 6 areas for the eggs to cook in. Mostly you're just moving the big pieces out of the way.

Let the eggs cook 8 to 10 minutes. Watch to make sure the top whites cook. You may have to splash hot liquid on the top of the eggs.

9

Once the eggs are cooked to you liking the meal is done.

You can eat by itself or on top of rice or noodles.

I enjoyed it with a basic salad on the side.
