So when Normy’s Titi Michy came for New Years she made us Picadillo and I LOVED IT. So we decided to try to make it at home. So Normy decided he wanted to make it.
2 cups onion, diced
2 cups green pepper, seeded and finely chopped
I Don’t have time for pictures! I am cooking here WOMAN!
2 tablespoons olive oil for sautéing
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 pounds ground beef
3 large roma tomatoes, chopped
1 teaspoon cumin, ground
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 cup green olives, chopped
1/3 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper (to taste)
(Normy cut this recipe in half, as it was just us 2 and we didn’t need as much as the recipe called for).
Before we start cooking, one must have some wine…
Some Malbec please
When cooking in Jamie’s kitchen, one must do this…
and this… (I taught him well)
Sauté onion and green pepper in olive oil
in a large frying pan.
Sauté about 5 minutes,
until the onion is softened, then add the garlic and ground beef.
Mash the onion and green pepper into the sautéing meat and cook until the meat is browned, about 5 minutes.
Add the tomatoes,
cumin, cinnamon, cloves (optional) and oregano.
Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.
and simmer 5 minutes longer. Salt and pepper to taste.
Serve hot over white rice
and in our house the person who cooks doesn’t do the dishes. The person who doesn’t cook does the dishes and that lucky person was me…
I HATE DOING THE DISHES!
This totally sucks!
this is why I cook all the time…so I don’t have to do the lame dishes!
