Time 1h35m

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 17

2 potatoes
salt to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, minced
1 green bell pepper, minced
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
1 ½ pounds lean ground beef
2 cups dry red wine
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
⅔ cup pimiento-stuffed green olives, drained and chopped
½ cup capers, drained
¼ cup golden raisins
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 pinch dried oregano
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon olive oil

Steps:

  • Place the potatoes into a large pot with enough water to cover; season with salt. Bring the water to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, place a cover on the pot, and cook the potatoes at a simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat; cook and stir the onion, green bell pepper, and garlic in the hot oil until the vegetables soften, about 5 minutes.
  • Crumble the ground beef into the onion mixture, breaking the meat into smaller pieces as you mix; cook and stir until the beef is completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain as much fat from the mixture as possible.
  • Stir the red wine, tomato sauce, olives, capers, golden raisins, cumin, oregano, black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt into the ground beef mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer until the wine had reduced significantly, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Peel the cooled potatoes and cut into chunks.
  • Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the potatoes in the hot oil until browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Gently fold the cooked potatoes into the simmering ground beef mixture; cook together 5 minutes.

CUBAN STYLE PICADILLO



Cuban Style Picadillo image

This dish is best served over white rice with sweet plantains on the side (I use the frozen package of sweet plantains) Also great as left-overs! My house always smells so good when i make this...makes mouths water as you inhale it! Note: when I make this I pour about 5 tablespoons of Kirby mojo criollo in the hamburger meat, it just adds a tiny bit more flavor

8 ounces tomato sauce
1/4 cup sliced pimento stuffed olive
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon raisins
5 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup uncooked rice
1 package frozen sweet plantain (optional)

Steps:

  • Cook ground chuck in skillet on med-high heat and drain most of the fat (I always leave some in for flavor) Add mojo criollo (if desired), oregano, red cooking wine, tomato sauce,olives, brown sugar and raisons.
  • Put the lid on and simmer for 30-45 minutes.
  • In separate pan heat olive oil at med-high and add potatoes, onion, red pepper, and garlic (do not add garlic until potatoes are almost done) and cook until potatoes are fully cooked Add them to the pan and re-cover lid.
  • Make rice as directed on package.
