Here is a recipe that Ernie requested from my mom.

I haven't had this but mom cooks it at Gail's when she goes to visit. Ernie said that Ta'haia loved it so he would like to cook it for her, she's pretty picky.

Mediterranean Beef Toss
serves 4.

1 red onion, peeled
2 small zucchinis
1 green pepper
1 28 oz can tomatoes, it says drained but mom doesn't
1 1/2 tbsp oil
1/2 lb ground beef
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp balsamic or red wine vinegar
1 tsp dried leaf thyme
1 tsp dried sage, mom uses dried basil

Cut onion into thin wedges, keeping root end intact. Slice zucchinis into thin rounds. Cut green pepper into 1" chunks. Coarsely chop tomatoes. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan set over medium heat. Add beef, garlic and 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper. Stir often until meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Then remove from pan.
Add remaining oil to pan, add onion and cook stirring often, for 2 minutes. Add zucchinis and green pepper. Stir fry until zucchinis start to brown, from 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, vinegar, thyme, sage (basil) and remaining 1/2 tsp of salt. stir until hot, about 2 minutes.
Serve with rice noodles or big crusty buns.
