Ground Beef Omelet is good for breakfast or brunch. This dish, in particular, can be consumed with either rice or bread. It is simple, delicious, and filling.
I grew-up eating a lot of it because it is something that my mom used to make back then in Las Pinas. I will have it with warm steamed rice along with banana ketchup. There are times when I eat ground beef omelet with sinangag. If I want to eat it with bread, I have it either with tasty bread (loaf bread) or pandesal.
Now I am enjoying the same great tasting beef omelet even if I am away from the Philippines. No, I did not cook this myself — I just ate this for brunch. The expert cook who used to make this delightful dish came to visit. I am glad that after a while someone is cooking for me.
My mom keeps herself busy in the kitchen. She already made her Filipino version of lasagna, nilagang litid ng baka, pork and chicken adobo, and pork sinigang. She plans to do more dishes and I get to taste them all. It is like my childhood nostalgia that came true.

- 4 eggs
- 1/2 lb. ground beef
- 1 small yellow onion chopped
- 1 small green bell pepper chopped
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 6 tablespoons cooking oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- Prepare the ground beef filing by heating 3 tablespoons of cooking oil in a pan.

- Remove the omelet from the pan and transfer to a serving plate. Perform the same steps until all the ingredients are consumed.
- Serve with rice or bread. Share and enjoy!
