PICADILLO, CUBAN STYLE HAMBURGER AND RICE

  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound chuck hamburger meat
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 2 T Sofrito (I prefer Goya brand)
  • 1/2 C stuff Manzanilla olives
  • 1/2 C capers (non-pareilles)
  • 3/4 C golden raisins
  • (Use large fry pan)

 

Saute the onion in the olive oil for 5 min., add the green pepper and garlic.  Saute for 3 min.  Add hamburger meat and break up well, brown the meat.

Drain all on lots of paper towels on plate.  But back in large fry pan.

Add salt & pepper, 1 can tomato sauce, and 1/2 can water, and 2 T Sofrito.  Stir and simmer on low for 15 to 20 min. until most of the liquid is absorbed. Stirring frequently.   Add the olives, capers, and raisins.  Mix well, cook 5 min. more.   Stir and serve.

This is served over white rice.  Goes well with a side of peas and/or fried plantains.
