I made fried sweet potatoes as a side dish and added carrot, celery and a some garbanzo beans to this with a pinch of cinnamon and a couple cloves. Was really a great hit !!!
This came out perfect, even without the potatoes. I make this at least once a month.
This brings back wonderful memories! This is the best recipe for Picadillo I have found! Thanks for sharing it!
This was absolutely delicious! My boyfriend hates raisins, but he loved this dish! I omitted the olives, as we're not big olive fans. I served it with basmati rice. I didn't have any plantains, but I'll be sure to have them next time I make this. I love plantains! I also think I'll double the recipe next time, since we don't have much left over.
had this for the 1st time in paris last summer and was hoping to recreate this tasty dish. used ground turkey to make it slightly healthier. couldn't find plantains in our grocery store. would use the recommended mojo criollo next time -- if i can find it. hubby ate all the leftovers. a++++
This was wonderful! Spicy yet with a touch of sweetness. The only changes I made were to use vinegar in place of the red wine, & i soaked the raisins in it to soften them, & since I didn't have any regular tomato sauce, I used a can that was pre-seasoned to be used with tacos. Also, I added about a half-teaspoon each of cinnamon & cumin, but i'm sure even w/ NO changes, this would have been awesome! I served it w/ a choice of tortillas or rice.
I've made this recipe many times, but never reviewed it. One of my husband's favorites and yes, it is good over rice, but he loves to eat it on bread; like an open faced sandwich. I usually serve half and freeze the other half for another meal....love that!!
