    Default Picadillo

    1T olive oil
    1 med. onion, chopped
    4 cloves garlic, crushed
    1 large green pepper, diced
    2lbs. ground beef
    2-15 oz. cans of tomato sauce
    1/2 cup green olives, pitted and chopped
    3T. capers
    1/2 c. raisins (optional)
    4T. Worcestershire sauce
    4T. vinegar
    salt and black pepper to taste
    Heat the oil in a skillet and add the onion. Saute until the onion is golden, about 15 minutes. Add the garlic and green pepper and saute gently for 5 minutes. Add the beef, breaking it up into small pieces as it browns. Add tomato sauce and mix well. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until meat is cooked through and flavors blend (about 15 min.). Taste for seasoning, adding more vinegar and worcestershire sauce if necessary. This dish best served over rice, or chopped boiled potatoes.

    Sounds good. I think I would have to replace the capers with something else. lol. I have never really liked the taste of capers.

    All these receipes must be the result of cabin fever. They are making me hungry! Which is not good because it is 9:40pm and I'm trying to relax and go to sleep. Gr-r-r.
