While chatting with a friend a few days ago I realized I had never cooked anything from Guam, also Sri Lanka, but that's a post for another day. However, not even a week later a post on facebook pops up about Chamorro cooking and I felt like it was just time to make something from Guam. And so I did with great success. This was a delicious homey meal with a distinct tropical taste that was delicious.

1 lb. ground beef
Seasoning salt salt, to taste
1 onion, coarsely chopped
3 cloves garlic
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 bag frozen green beans, sliced
1 beef bouillon cube
black pepper to taste
1 c. coconut milk
1 habanero pepper, optional

Cooked rice to serve with

Brown the meat with seasoning salt until about halfway cooked. Add the onion and continue cooking until the meat is no longer pink.

Add the green beans, garlic, and tomatoes and cook, stirring, until the tomatoes break down a bit. 

Add the beef bouillon cube, coconut milk, and habanero, if using. Before adding poke a few holes in the side of the habanero. 

Simmer for 5 minutes. 

Serve over rice.
