This is an altered version of my grandma's Thanksgiving stuffing recipe, and it is delicious! Would also work for tacos or tostadas.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1⁄3 cup of chopped onion
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
- 1⁄2 cup chopped almonds
- 1⁄3 cup raisins
- 1⁄3 cup olive (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt (give or take, to taste)
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Pam cooking spray, 2 sprays, to use separately
- Heat a small pan to medium/high heat, spray it with Pam, and toast the almonds on it until they are slightly browned.
- In the meantime, heat another small pan to medium/high heat, spray it with Pam, and sauté the can of tomatoes on it for about 7 minutes.
- As the almonds and tomatoes toast/sauté, heat the olive oil in a large sauce pan, and add the onion. When it is transparent, add the garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
- Add the beef to the large sauce pan and mix it with the onion and garlic. Add the salt and black pepper too.
- Once the beef is no longer pink, add the tomatoes, almonds, raisins, olives, and cider. Make sure ingredients are all mixed together and then add the cumin.
- Cook for 10-15 more minutes, until beef is cooked through.
This was so good!! And very easy to make. I made it for a dinner party last weekend as one of three main dishes and everyone was raving. I left out the olives, because I hate them, and doubled the garlic and cumin, because I love them. Considering I'm a little homesick and I still have most of the ingredients, I'll probably make it again this week! Thanks for a delicious recipe Ana_Isa! ;)
