DIRECTIONS

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet and add the sofrito (garlic, onions, green pepper, jalapeno, cilantro, capers, olives, bay leaves and cumin seeds).
  • Cook the sofrito until it is fragrant and the onions are translucent; remove from pan and set aside.
  • Brown ground beef in pan and drain fat.
  • Add sofrito to the beef along with the tomatoes, vinegar, and cayenne pepper.
  • Simmer for 45 minutes on low heat.
  • Serve over rice, with a fried egg on top, garnished with pimiento, if desired.
  • Another option to serve is to spoon it into corn tortillas, with lettuce, tomato, green onions, jalapenos, cheese, and hot sauce, like a taco.
