Ground Beef Picadillo

Ground Beef Picadillo
  • Prep 20 min
  • Total 40 min
  • Ingredients 12
  • Servings 6
Ground beef picadillo is one of my favorite comfort foods because it is warm and full of flavor. I love to make it juicy with some sauce left on the meat so I can then cover a plate of white rice with it. Aside from being served with rice, picadillo many times is also used as an empanada, tamal, or casserole filling.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium potatoes, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 green bell pepper, minced
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano, ground
  • 1 cup Muir Glen™ tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup pepper-stuffed green olives, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped

Directions

  • 1
    Cook potatoes for about 10 minutes with olive oil on a skillet over medium heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 2
    Add onions, peppers, and celery to the potatoes and keep cooking for about 5 more minutes until vegetables are tender and potatoes are crispy on the outside and starting to soften inside.
  • 3
    While potatoes are cooking, brown the beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • 4
    Season beef with garlic, cumin and oregano. Adjust salt level to taste and keep cooking for about 8-10 minutes.
  • 5
    Add the cooked potatoes to the beef, and stir in the tomato sauce, olives, and cilantro.
  • 6
    Let sauce come to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer until the liquid has reduced, for 10-15 minutes.
  • 7
    Serve and enjoy!
