South Asian-Style Ground Beef, Potatoes, Peas and Bok Choy (Keema)

This is a traditional Indian recipe that's been spruced up with bok choy, mushrooms, green pepper, and peas. My version is kinda spicy, so you if you don't like spicy so much, you might want to cut back on the cayenne pepper. This serves well with naan or rice or just by itself.
