Picadillo With Oyster Sauce

Picadillo is a dish mainly consisting of ground beef (sometimes shredded beef or chicken) typically found in Cuba, Mexico, and other Latin American countries. In Mexico it is sometimes used as a filling, such as for tacos, and can be mixed with vegetables. It can also be prepared as a type of stew. Some time when in my other site I posted a recipe of my own version of Picadillo. Entry Here
This recipe was adapted from our Spanish friends. And it is my husband's favorite.

Especially if I cook it with Oyster Sauce.

This dish is very easy to cook.

What You Will Be Needing:

2 tbsp oyster sauce

1 kilo lean ground meat (pork or beef)

5 cloves garlic (minced)

1 medium onion (chopped)

100g raisins

1 large green bellpepper (chopped into small pieces)

2 large potatoes (chopped into small pieces)

Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper

1/2 cup water

How To:

Saute garlic in olive oil until light brown
Add onions and meat. Stir for a few seconds.
Add Oyster sauce.
Add chopped potatoes. Stir again for a few seconds.
Add 1/2 c water and simmer until meat and potatoes are cooked. Add water is necessary.

Add raisins and bell pepper.
Stir for a few seconds and simmer again for about a minute.
Salt and pepper to taste.

* I prefer boiling the meat ahead and drain before cooking the dish itself. It's heathier and faster.
