Picadillo

Picadillo created by rpgaymer

Picadillo is one of the Cuban dishes I discovered while living in Miami. This version is always a hit with my family and friends. I serve picadillo over white or yellow rice. Black beans and garlic bread make a nice accompaniment.

    Very good. Wan't sure about the combination of ingredients but turned out good.

    This is pretty good, and definitely tastes different than most Latin American food I've eaten. I ended up using chopped kale instead of peas though, because I love kale. I served this over rice, but I realize now it would have tasted so much better in a burrito, maybe with some cheese, sour cream, and pico de gallo.

    Amazing flavor! We love this recipe and I make it often!! I only use 1 lb of ground beef and sometimes use 2 Tbs of pimento-stuffed green olives instead of a can of pimentos. I always use sherry. Make yellow rice or ID #348262 and add another handful of raisins. YUM :)
