Recipe by threeovens
This is served in Colombian restaurants as part of their "Mountain Platter" or "Bandeja Paisa". It is usually served with a fried egg on top, rice and beans, slice avocado, sweet fried plantains, corn cake and pork rinds (chiccharone).

I really wanted to like this recipe. I love Cuban food and wanted to try something from Columbia. I followed the recipe exactly with one exception. I only used three jalapenos. The heat was fine and I could have added two more. My problem with the recipe is that it lacks flavor.
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1⁄2 cup onion, diced
- 5 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
- 1 lb ground beef
- 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and minced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons beef bouillon
- salt and pepper
Directions See How It's Made
- Saute onion in oil in a large skillet over medium low heat until translucent. Add jalapeno and cook about 10 minutes more. Remove onion and peppers and set aside.
- Raise heat to medium and quickly brown ground beef. Drain off fat and return onions and peppers. Add tomatoes, garlic, bouillon, salt and pepper to taste.
- Saute over low heat for 15 minutes.
- This can also be prepared using beef broth rather than the bouillon. You would add it at the same time, just cook until desired consistency.
