Cuban Chopped Beef Hash

Cuban Chopped Beef Hash (Picadillo) One of Cuba's most popular dishes. It is served traditionally with white rice.


1/4 cup olive oil
1 large onion (diced)
1 large green bell pepper (chopped)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
1/2 tspn cayenne pepper
2 lbs ground lean beef
3 tomatoes (chopped)
1/2 tspn ground cumin
2 tbsp capers
1 tspn oregano
spanish green olives
salt and pepper

In a large frying pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Saute diced onion, garlic, green pepper, and cayenne pepper for 5 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Then add the beef and chop and mash the ingredients while stirring, until the meat is lightly browned. Add the tomatoes, cumin, and oregano, and place a handful of spanish olives over the meat. You can optionally add raisins and/or chopped potato cubes to add that Cuban touch. Cover and reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the capers, salt and pepper and simmer for 15 mins stirring occasionally. Serve hot, preferably with white rice and sweet plantains!
