This Picadillo gets its hearty flavor from a combination of briny olives, tangy tomato sauce, and aromatic spices. Whenever I do my weekend meal preps, I make it a point to cook a recipe that uses either ground beef or ground turkey so I can stretch that dish to last multiple meals throughout the week. You’ll get more bang for your buck by using ground meat where a pound can easily feed a family of 4 or more!
I’ve been making this Picadillo for about a year now and I usually eat it with white rice or Turmeric Garlic Rice and fried plantains. The rich flavor of the Picadillo compliments the sweetness of the plantains (if using ripe ones!) so I always end up scarfing my meal in 10 minutes. Yep, I know I’m supposed to chew my food well but rice and ground beef are already itty bitty pieces so… lol
