Beef Picadillo

Picadillo is a Spanish dish that have many versions depending on the country where there has been a Spanish influence like Cuba, Latin America and of course our homeland. Traditionally ground beef is used in this recipe with lots of potatoes and tomatoes. This is very similar to our pork giniling dish but differs in some ingredients like ground pork, carrots or sometimes raisins are included. I guarantee this is a very simple dish so if you want to cook a quick beef dish, then I think this is the choice.
