Guinisang carne (sauteed meat)

I had bought a lot of ground turkey meat at Costco a few weeks ago, hoping to use it instead of ground beef. I'm trying to be a little more healthy. Its very hot out today, and I didn't want to slave over a hot stove. So I decided to make this easy filipino dish. Again, I go back to the concept of simple sautee of garlic and onions to make a dish. This dish can be made with ground beef, ground pork, or ground chicken as well.

1 Tbsp. oil
3/4 lb. ground turkey
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 small potato, diced
1 tomato, diced
1/2 cup frozen green peas
1/2 Tbsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper

1) Heat oil in a large sautee pan. Add garlic then onions. Sautee for about a minute. Add carrots and potatoes and continue sauteeing until the carrots begin to soften (about 3 minutes).

2) Add ground turkey and stir until meat is no longer pink. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper then the green peas. Continue cooking until the peas are no longer frozen. Serve over steamed white rice.
