Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the
onion, green pepper, and garlic, and saute for a few minutes, until the onion
becomes translucent and the pepper tender.
Add the ground beef, pork, ham, and sausage, and saute, stirring constantly,
until all the ingredients mix and the meats brown. Stir in the capers, season with
