  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 small red capsicums, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp cumin, grounded
  • 2 tsp paprika, grounded
  • 2 tbsp parsley, fresh, finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp coriander, fresh, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp thyme, dried
  • 200 g ground beef
  • 600 g tomatoes, diced
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • 60 g feta cheese (optional)


  • Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan on a medium heat. Cook the onions for 2-3 minutes until softened, then add the capsicum and cook for 5 more minutes.
  • Add garlic, cumin, paprika, parsley, 2 tbsp coriander and dried thyme. Cook for 30 seconds until fragrant.
  • Add the ground beef and cook for 2-3 minutes, breaking it up with the back of your spoon, until browned. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Make hollows for the eggs in the tomato and beef mix using the back of a serving spoon. Crack in the eggs and add feta if using. Cover the pan with a lid, and cook for 5 minutes, or until the whites have set but the yolks are still wobbly.
  • Divide evenly into two serving bowls and garnish with the remaining coriander.


Add extra vegetables on the side, like steamed asparagus or pan-fried mushrooms if desired.
