Picadillo Dreaming

ground meat and veggies

Picadillo is a traditional Latin American meat dish which also has a Philippine version made out of ground meat and vegetables.  In the Philippines, this dish is better known as giniling (ground/minced) not only for the ground meat used but also for the finely chopped vegetables.

The picadillo you see on this post is a product of my own recipe.  I bought ground beef and a pack of frozen vegetables (carrots, peas, corn) from the grocery and cooked them up and came up with this!  What I did was sauteed onions and garlic and added the meat and stock and cooked it until it became tender.  I added the frozen vegetables and potatoes that I have diced, and seasoned the dish with salt and pepper.  When the picadillo was done,  I scooped some on top of steaming rice!  The rest is history... How I wish I could have some right now... 

Until then, I'll just be picadillo dreaming...
