Picadillo (Cuban inspired)

IMG_5310

This is starting to look like a favourite as it seems I have been making this more often than I should (click here for the recipe).  Or perhaps it is the ease of preparing (that’s why I made it again).  Either way, it is still somehow different with today’s twist–adding green olives this time.  I came across two posts, by Lithuanian in the USA and Pinky’s Pantry wherein they prepared the Cuban version.  Liucija also added capers, cumin and white wine; and Pinky also added cinnamon, oregano and red wine vinegar.  Next time I will explore even further this dish!

  1. Hi Cookingflip (sorry, I don’t know your real name). Don’t you find it interesting how different cultures can have similarities in their dishes, just like the Cuban Picadillo and our Filipino Giniling. My mom actually used to make a soup for us when we were growing up that she called Sopa de Picadillo which was probably Spanish in origin but had the same base of ground beef and potatoes. Very versatile ingredients. Anyway, thanks for linking to my blog! Your picadillo looks delicious!

    • Hi Pinky. Yes, I find it interesting–the similarities (must be the Hispanic background), as well as how each culture introduces their own tweaks. I have yet to try your other recipes–when I get the time, whenever that would be 🙂 Have a great day!

      • Oh, you are so sweet! 🙂 I’m happy that you can find some ideas in my blog! 🙂 Your blog is lovely!! :)) I love the mix of cultures and their foods 🙂

      • Thank you 🙂 And your blog is awesome! I left a comment in your picadillo page yesterday–not sure if it got through as I couldn’t see a preview. You have a great weekend! Cheers! 😊☀
