    Wilo Benet's Picadillo

    Picadillo, or spiced ground beef, found its way to us via the Cuban community. Its versatility and uncomplicated nature makes it a favorite in the Puerto Rican culinary repertoire.

    Olive Oil
    1
    onion (finely diced)
    1
    red bell pepper (finely diced with seeds and inner white ribbing removed)
    8
    cloves

    1/2
    cup
    sofrito

    pounds
    ground beef sirloin
    Directions
    In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onion, and cook for about 2 minutes until it loses its raw taste. Add the red pepper, garlic and sofrito, and cook, stirring, for another 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce, culantro and oregano, season with 2 tablespoons of salt, and cook for another minute.
    Add the meat, and cook for about 4 minutes, stirring and breaking up the beef as it cooks. Season with another tablespoon of salt, and continue to cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the meat is cooked through, the liquid has evaporated and the flavors have concentrated.
