My Cuban recipe book I got from my Cuban granddad and grandmom dissappeared mysteriously years ago from my roommate shared apartment, and with it my piccadillo recipe. I have been looking ever since, trying a new recipe every time, without being able to pinpoint what is wrong. I finally figured it out doing this recipe! Piccadillo does not have tomato sauce! Tomato sauce drowns out the subtle flavors of the olives and capers, and green pepper. It makes it slightly more sophisticated - it is not your kids meat sauce you are eating. Very tasty!
I made this for my dad and then for my church home team. Everyone loved it! The group leader begged for the recipe. Thank you so much, it scored me some chocolate cake.
I always judge a good Cuban Restaurant by their Piccadillo... this is a great recipe!
