Step 1: Cook the vegetables and minced beef
  1. Heat 6 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet. Add the onions, green peppers, garlic, spices, salt and pepper. Stir fry for 10 minutes until the vegetables have softened.
  2. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, and sugar. Mix well and add the minced beef. Stir and cook for 5 minutes. #Tip: if the mixture looks too dry, add some water to the mixture and mix well.
  3. Once the beef is cooked, let the mixture simmer for 10-12 minutes until the sauce begins to reduce. Do a taste test and adjust the seasoning to your liking.
Step 2: Add and cook the eggs
  1. Using a wooden spoon, make 5 indentations, or “wells,” in the tomato mixture. Make sure the indentations are evenly spaced out. Gently crack an egg into each indention.
  2. Reduce the heat, cover the skillet with the lid, and cook on low until the egg whites are set.
Step 3: Garnish and serve!
  1. Uncover the skillet and garnish with parsley. You can add more black pepper or crushed red pepper, if you like. Serve hot.
