This recipe came from my cajun grandmother, Hazel Wiltz Forrest. Everytime I taste it I think of her and her wonderful cooking.

1
Brown ground beef and add onion and bell pepper as you brown it. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Boil whole eggplants until tender.
3
When eggplants are tender, peel and cut into bite size chunks. ( I like to remove the seeds but this is optional)
