  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat until shimmering hot. Turn down heat to medium, add the ground meat, stirring often and breaking up into small pieces. Cook until browned, about 3 minutes.
  2. Toss in the onions and green beans. Cook until they’ve softened, stirring often, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the Omsom starter and stir to evenly coat everything in the skillet.
  4. Add red peppers (optional) and roughly hand tear the basil into the skillet. Turn off heat and stir to wilt the basil.
  5. Salt to taste and top with fried egg (optional).
  6. You’re done! Serve with some of our suggested favorites. Enjoy!
