My Mom passed away while I was in my 20's, so I never learned the ethnic dishes that she cooked so well. But I found a scribbled paper where she had jotted down the ingredients for Picadillo, a traditional Latin American dish.
The cast of characters -
1 lb Ground Beef
Green Peppers, Onions, garlic
1 can whole or diced tomatoes
Saute green peppers, onions and garlic in olive oil. Set aside.
Add peppers, onions, garlic and can of tomatoes to cooked beef and cook til blended.
Salt to taste.
Serve over hot rice.
I love the blend of flavors. The raisins and green olives give it that sweet and sour flavor. I hope you will give it a try. A great ground beef stretcher.
